Ian O’Connor is a native of Hanover, PA who has spent the past three summers working on Adventure Staff at Ligonier Camp. He’s also worked at Genesee Valley Outdoor Learning Center during the fall and spring seasons for two years as an adventure facilitator. After being invited to work at camp by his former youth group leader, Amanda Cooper, Ian immediately found his love for facilitating adventure activities. He loves seeing the growth that can happen through the awesome challenges the program provides. He plans to use his time as an intern to further his own professional experience in facilitating as he seeks a future in the camping & adventure industry and works towards a certification to become a Challenge Course Manager. When he isn’t working hard around camp, Ian can be found fishing at the lake, dominating at trivia night with a breadth of knowledge, or cheering on the Boston Bruins (sorry, Pens fans).
