Brenna G.

Hello everyone!  This will be my second year facilitating on the Tango Tower.  When I'm not clipping people into the zip and having great conversations around the stretching rope, I'm an English teacher at Lakeland Union High School.  A Minocqua native, who loves adventures in traveling, reading, and running, being at camp where kindness counts and grit gets you through is a blessing of fate for me.  See you all soon!!
