Sara grew up in NY state and currently resides very close to camp in Pittsboro with her family. Aside from all things outdoors and camp Sara loves to cook, craft, laugh and spend time with her family (partner, 3 kids, 2 dogs, 4 chickens). She has worked at Camp Royall since 1997 in just about every job that camp has to offer, and it is her favorite place in the universe. Her favorite camp activities are singing camp songs at the shady circle and riding the hayride. Sara loves Camp Royall because it is full of enthusiasm and magic. She loves that memories are made and lives are changed at Camp Royall and she takes pride in our commitment to welcoming and accepting everyone just as they are.

Kristian first fell in love with Camp Royall in 2013 after spending the summer filling her internship requirements for a dual major in Outdoor Education & Psychology. After graduation Kristian moved to North Carolina to be closer to the best place on earth (Camp Royall) and joined full time in 2017 as Assistant Director. When she’s not at camp, Kristian loves to spend time outdoors with her dogs. Her favorite camp activities include the campfire, hiking, and of course relaxing in the sensory room. Kristian loves Camp Royall because it provides individuals of all ages and support needs the ability to access and enjoy the camping experience. She also loves that Camp Royall creates an environment where Families, Campers, and Staff can come to truly be themselves, have fun, and get outside.
