Favorite Camp Activity: Painting a horse!

Maddie has worked at Little Bit for the past three summers as one of the camp counselors. Outside of camp, she has volunteered at Little Bit for five years as a side walker, leader, and a member of the training team. Maddie attends Western Washington University so she doesn’t get to spend as much time at Little Bit as she wants to anymore...which is why Maddie so excited to be back for camp this summer! Maddie recently completed her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. Maddie hopes to attend medical school to pursue a career in medicine. Maddie loves being around horses and helping kids have the opportunity to spend time with and ride them. She loves that she gets to do both at Little Bit!

Overall, Sarah has been involved with Little Bit for 15 years, and has been on staff since 2011, working when her school schedule allowed.
