When not at camp: I go to school at TCNJ where I play on the Field Hockey team. I also work at a physical therapist's office.

What's your favorite bunk meeting? Scoosh! It's the one where everyone puts water in their mouths except for one person. That one person has the objective of getting the other people out by being funny. If you spit your water out, then you lose, but you still get to try and make everyone else laugh!

If you could create your own parade, "The Cara Parde", what would it be like? I think if the Color Run and the Night Nation Run had a baby it would be my parade. It would start with a 5K run where everyone gets splashed with color powder, but then at the end of the 5K there's an EDM concert. Everyone is welcome at my parade though, I will not discriminate against non-runners! 

What's the best vacation you've ever been on? I went to Punta Cana in 2014 with my family. We went to the beach, went to the circus, and rode horses. It was so much fun. 

What do you like about working with the Staff Assistants? Well I think I like working with all the staffies because they're so much fun! They keep me young. All of them are super responsible, and I just feel super lucky to be with them. It's special having my own little bunk group, while also being on leadership.
