Blake Thacher, 22, is from Savannah, Georgia and is a member of the 2023 class at Tulane University where she is pursuing a degree in Political Science & Social Policy and Practice. Blake first joined the Moondance family in 2016 as a participant on our Northern Lights trip and went on to participate in our Chamonix trip. Blake always remembers how impactful her leaders were especially when she was out of her comfort zone during backpacking sections. Blake recalls how her leaders never made her fear inferior to the fast hikers in the group, how they empowered her to succeed and how they kept her company when she fell to the back of the pack. Blake remembers these moments and wants to channel that energy into her students this upcoming summer. Blake has a strong desire to make every student feel appreciated and important, which is exactly what she did as a leader for Belize + Costa Rica! We are so excited for Blake to create an impact on her students that will last a lifetime for a second time!

He grew up in Greenville, South Carolina where he was the senior class president, graduated Cum Laude, and spent his summers at Camp Seagull. He is charismatic and excited to serve as a mentor for his Moondance students. Cameron has experience showing dedication and empathy towards teenagers as an RA at Furman, and is exited to take it to another level this summer. Cameron will build unbreakable bonds with his Moondance students, and we are so excited to have him as a trip leader!
