MEET THE TEAM
Jenna Philpott, Site Administrator
Jenna Philpott began her love for writing when she was the same age as our AIW campers! She morphed from aspiring scribbler to serious word artist when joining the University of San Francisco’s MFA in Creative Writing. Jenna has taught students ages 4 to 24 how to hone their writing skills, but more importantly: how to fall in love with writing! She believes in the power of imagination and the power of play — so she knows the two combined at Adventures in Writing Camp are sure to bring about the best stories. Jenna is excited to lead campers at Ring Mountain Day School in Mill Valley, and give back to the community where she grew up!
Nicole Johnson, Entertainment Ranger
Hey there! Nicole is SO excited to be working with the campers this summer. They are going to have a BLAST! Nicole grew up in San Rafael and recently graduated from Dominican University with her teaching credential and is now teaching 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies in Mill Valley. She’s been in plays and musicals her whole life and loves singing and dancing, and has always loved writing whether it is for fun or for learning. That is why she could not be more excited to be joining Adventures in Writing Camp this summer!
Remington Taul, Entertainment Ranger
Remington has just driven across the country from Chicago here to California hoping to make this his new home. He loves the sun and the outdoors, especially skateboarding and jumping into the pool. He is excited to share his story and learn about the campers’ adventures through the stories they will write together!
Elena DeNoia, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
Your friendly neighborhood Elena is back! She is a fourth-year student at UC Santa Cruz (Go Banana Slugs!) studying History and Anthropology. Elena hopes to one day get her PhD and work at the archives in Washington D.C. Elena was an Adventure Guide with AIW Camp for the past two summers and loved it so much she just HAD to come back! In her spare time, she likes to read, play soccer, and sing Disney songs with her friends!
Emily Grivas, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
Emily has just left the city of Chicago to find her home here in the California sun! When she’s not working out she enjoys camping, hiking, and hitting the beach. Emily loves to read and can’t wait to learn about the campers through the stories they share!
