Hello everybody! My name is Melissa and this will be my 11th summer at Hoofbeat and my 5th working with the Resident Campers! Outside of camp, I am finishing my second year majoring in Animal Science and Environmental Studies at UW-Madison. When I’m not at camp or school, I love doing anything outside, especially hanging out with my horse, Sterling! My favorite camp activities include Quiddich games and Numbers and my favorite camp horses would have to be Jazz, Lightning and Indy! I can’t wait to see everyone for another fantastic summer! 

Hi all! I’m Sophie and this will be my second year as Resident Camp staff. I’m a junior in an online high school, and in my free time I love to read, listen to music, spend time outside, and relax with my dogs. Currently I live in La Crosse, Wisconsin, but I’m originally from Mazomanie! I’m counting the days till camp starts up, and I can’t wait to participate in my favorite camp activities (hay rides, group games, and breakfast) and see all my favorite horses, especially Kirby and Roscoe! (pictured is my favorite senior citizen, Midnight) Mainly I’m looking forward to getting to know all the campers and my co-counselors, new and familiar faces alike. See you this summer!

Hi, I’m Kelly! This is my first year working at Hoofbeat as a staff member, and I am so unbelievably excited! I’ve been going to camp for six years, and ever since my first year I’ve always wanted to become part of the camp staff family. I’m from the suburbs of Chicago in Illinois, but the three hour drive to camp is totally worth it (well, I’m also not the one who drives, I just nap in the passenger seat)! In my free time, I’m part of my school’s varsity debate team, varsity badminton, band, and colorguard. I also love doing makeup and special fx makeup when I have the time to! I can’t wait to make so many new memories at camp this summer, and I’m just so excited for everything I can’t pick one. Summer can’t come soon enough!

Some of my favorite camp activities include trail rides, theme nights, and spending time with my favorite camp horses, Scout and Raspberry! I can't wait to be back at camp and get to know all the new and returning staff and campers.
