JP Lisi, 22, is a new graduate from Tulane University, with a major in Environmental Studies and minor in philosophy. Originally, from West Chester, Pennsylvania, he first discovered his passion for the outdoors at Camp Kingsley Pines, for which he later worked as a camp counselor. While a camp counselor, he found joy in growing his campers’ worldviews, gratitude, and confidence. During the fall of 2020, he did a semester-long NOLS in the Rockies and gained invaluable outdoor experiences. At Tulane, he is the founder of the wrestling club, a campus tour guide, a representative of the rock climbing club, a member of the outdoor adventures club and a member of the art and gardening club. JP is excited to match the energy of his Moondance students, share his love for life, and spread a sense of wonderment this summer. JP’s first summer will be nothing if not memorable, and we can’t wait for him to meet his students on Pacific Northwest!
Claire Koonsman, 22, was born and raised in Dallas, TX, and recently graduated from the University of Richmond with a degree in Business Administration. Claire loves Richmond and has focused on becoming as involved as possible in her local community. In doing so, Claire has gotten extremely involved in the Women in Business Club, empowering greater involvement throughout the Business realm. Claire’s Moondance journey began back in 2014 on our California trip and had the time of her life! After this trip, she returned to Moondance for four more summers on our Maui Trip, Big Wild trip, Chamonix trip and Kilimanjaro trip. Ever since summiting Kilimanjaro, Claire has been counting down the days until she could rejoin the Moondance family as a leader, which is exactly what she did in 2022 on our Yellowstone trip. We are so excited to have Claire back for another summer with us!
