Ashley Himelfarb

Hi! I’m Ashley and I’ve been at camp since 1990 (when I was 4 years old). I loved camp, especially nature, and decided that I wanted to be Bob (the head of nature) when I grew up. Toward that end I became an LT, aide, instructor, and finally department head. I’ll never be as cool or knowledgeable as Bob but I’ve got a few decades to work on it.

Outside of camp I earned a bachelors of science in biology at Bryn Mawr College and a Masters in Art of Teaching in secondary science at Salisbury University. I’m currently a high school science teacher with BCPS.

On the weekends my wife (a former BT camps counselor) and I enjoy walking the goats that live at nature, hiking, cross stitching, and playing disc golf.

I look forward to another great summer in 2022.
