Hello everyone! My name is Georgia Bishop and I am from New Zealand, but have spent the last 14 years living on the Gold Coast in Australia. I have a degree in journalism and screen studies from Griffith University, and have a deep love for all things film and tv. I am very excited to share that I will be capturing all the magic of TAW over the summer, joining the team as camp videographer! This will be my second summer at TAW and I cannot wait to be back!


ERICA BROWNE - Counselor in Training Coordinator

Hi Guys! My name is Erica Browne and I am from Meath in Ireland! I love music, art and anything at all to do with fashion! I am happiest when outdoors in the sun, in my free time I bring my dog to the beach or go for a hike in many of the beautiful spots Ireland has to offer. I am beyond excited to meet you all this summer and create memories that we will all share forever.


LEAH HENDERSON - Waterfront Director

 Hi everyone! I am Leah and although I currently live in Atlantic Beach, FL, I grew up in Hendersonville, NC! During the school year I work for a small Waldorf and LifeWays inspired school as a Forest Teacher for their full nature immersion program. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, with minors in Computer Science, Chemistry, and Studio Art. Interestingly enough it was working at a summer camp after college that changed my trajectory from wanting to be a Neuroscientist, to wanting to be involved in community growth and education. I received a Masters degree in Secondary Science Education not too long after and have been working for alternative education programs and summer camps ever since! In my free time I love to be outside and in addition to spending my working days in the Forest and by the Ocean, I enjoy surfing, kayaking, swimming, and paddle-boarding. I also enjoy reading, listening to music, and doing all kinds of fun crafts. I am looking forward to the summer and am excited to be apart of the Camp Ton-a-wandah family!


MARY RODRIGUEZ - Activities Coordinator & Area Head Staff

Hi, I’m Mary Rodriguez, from Bogotá, Colombia. I’m a Social Communicator and Journalist by profession, but in my work I manage all areas of communication including design.
My favorite music is salsa, I love to dance, that makes me feel better, my favorite movie is Inception. I’m currently working in the communications area of YMCA Colombia, where I have been able to live camp on more than one occasion and that has inspired me to take on challenges this year such as living the magic of camp in Camp Ton A Wandah. I count the days to be there to live camp together and make this summer the best.
