Hey there! My name is Caitlin Cook, and I’m your new girl teen rep for Harmony Hill Youth Camp!
I’m from Greenwood, which is inside Lee’s Summit, which is inside Kansas City, Missouri. (Whichever city you recognize basically.) I’ve been a camper at Harmony Hill for 6 years now, but have been attending the campus since a toddler, catching all the frogs, kittens, and poison ivy.
I am a freshman at William Woods University this year, where I am double majoring in Biology for Pre-Vet studies, and Equestrian Science, which is the science of everything horses- but mainly riding them. I’m minoring in Spanish, and music as well.
My favorite things to do are talk to people, play sports, speak/teach Spanish, be outside, and ride my horse and grandpa’s horses bareback with someone at night. I love the violin, and rollerblading around the University. Traveling and meettng new cultures excites me, and Harmony Hill’s Compass Ministries is a wonderful program to experience that!
I hope that I and Benton can help make your experience at Harmony Hill the best!
