Hi, I’m Ben!

Blue Ridge Expedition Leader

Ben grew up in a small town in central Ohio. Growing up on a small alpaca and goat farm, he took an early interest in the outdoors. This, along with his family’s frequent trips to cabins and campgrounds along the Appalachian expanded his interest in the outdoors. This love for the outdoors quickly evolved into a love for camping, hiking, and backpacking. Ben spent his early professional years as a lifeguard, swim instructor, and camp counselor, along with working in kitchens. This is Ben’s first year as an expedition leader at GRP, but luckily he is no stranger to the outdoors. Ben is very eager to take on the camp environment this summer at GRP.
