Challenge Course Director/ Leadership Assistant

Hello, my name is Brittany Tomasko and I hail from the Golden State of California. I grew up in Mill Valley, CA. Mill Valley is located just 10 minutes north of San Francisco on the San Francisco Bay. This is my first summer at Camp Manito-wish and I will be the Challenge Course Director and Leadership Assistant.

I graduated from California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly), San Luis Obispo in 2009 with two degrees, one in Nutrition and the other in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Administration. In addition to school, I worked at Chumash Challenge a team building, high and low ropes course as a facilitator. I also taught swing dance lessons for the Cal Poly Swing Club and was a facilitator and leader for Cal Poly’s New Student Orientation Program (WOW – week of welcome).

My passions and hobbies in life are #1 Swing Dancing – lindy hop, Charleston, Balboa, and blues. I was on a swing dance performance troop prior to moving out to Camp Manito-wish. I am also an avid outdoor and sports enthusiast. I love road cycling and running and have competed in triathlons. On my days off you’ll probably find me out on my road bike riding the roads of the north woods. My favorite wilderness and water activities include backpacking, camping, canoeing, kayaking, and windsurfing. I also love laughing, hugs and smiling!
