Claire Foster of Pali Institute

Hometown: Greenville, NC

Education: North Carolina State University B.S. in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management

Claire grew up in North Carolina camping with her family, spending her days outside, and living in the water during the summers. When it was time to go to college Claire started as a business major, before discovering her real passion was for recreation and the great outdoors. After discovering her major, Claire fell in love with the thought of outdoor education and getting people outside. Claire spent the last two summers working at a camp in Florissant Colorado, where she lead backpacking trips, in camp activities, and spent her days in the Colorado sunshine. Working in Colorado solidified her love for recreation, outdoor education, and working with kids. She loves the idea of using the natural world as a classroom and encouraging hands-on learning.
