Ross Barnes
Land Program Director

I was born in Zimbabwe, raised in England and now call the US home. I fell in love with camping as a counselor at YMCA Camp Silver Beach in Virginia where I spent five fun-filled summers as a climbing instructor, assistant land director, head counselor and program development director. Favorite Camp Activity: All things artsy, I love creating things. Favorite Memory of Camp: Closing camp fires, seeing everyone receive awards and acknowledgements for accomplishments. Advice for Campers: Full hearts, clear eyes, can’t lose.

It’s an opportunity to make new friends, to have a break from technology. It’s the first real chance I’ve had to be responsible and independent.
