Astro Camp Staff
Hi! I’m Amy Gull. I love working at Astro Camp and teaching children that science is fun! I first heard of Astro Camp when I accompanied my son, who was in 5th grade at the time, on a field trip here. He later came to one of the summer camps and loved it! At that camp’s graduation, “Mr. D” (Ed Douglas– co-founder of Astro Camp) invited parents to come volunteer throughout the school year on Mission days. I took him up on the offer and ended up doing that for four consecutive school years. In fall of 2015, Mr. D offered me the position as Staff Assistant and I very much enjoyed it and working with him. I feel very grateful to be a bridge between the former and current Astro Camp Directors and to continue teaching students the joy of space and science. My own interest, understanding and enthusiasm for all things science has greatly increased since working here. I love to learn! I love running, talking with people, and have a weakness for sweets. I have a wonderful husband and have been married for 17 years. We have been blessed to have four fabulous children. I live in Ogden.
Night Staff: Abby Laing
Hello there! My name is Abby Laing, and I am employed as the night staff. I am currently attending Weber State University and am working towards a degree in elementary education. I graduated from Weber High School in 2015, and served an LDS mission in California. I am a volunteer with Intermountain Donor Services and spend a lot of time out in the community teaching others about organ donation. I play the piano, figure skate, and love watching forensic crime shows! I love anything and everything Disney, and operate a princess party company on the side. I had been employed at Astro Camp as the staff assistant for two summers, and was a camper for six summers before that. I love the program and am who I am today because of it!
Team Leader: Eliza Corrington
Hello! I am Eliza Corrington. This will be my first year at Astro Camp, but teaching children the joys of space and science has long been a passion for me as both a big sister and a school tutor for Da Vinci Academy. After recently moving to the Wasatch front, I was introduced to Astro Camp at a STEM convention in 2016 and was thrilled to apply for a Team Leader position. I am a huge comic geek who loves space and plan on becoming an astronaut one day as either a medical professional or an engineer. I adore chocolate, science and art, musical theater, my family and dog named Puck. I am 17 years old.
Team Leader: Haley Dummer
Hey! I’m Haley Dummer and I’m a Junior. I love math and science and especially biology I’m involved on the robotics team. I love playing volleyball and someday I would love to go to medical school. I have been going to Astro camp since sixth grade and I love it! I’m so excited to be able to work here and share my love of Astro camp and science in general with other kids!
Team Leader: Jordan Taylor
Hi! I’m Jordan Taylor. I just finished 11th grade at Fremont High School. Some of my favorite subjects in school are science and math, especially chemistry and physics. I have always wanted to be an astronaut and that is a large life goal for me. I enjoy robotics and technology outside of school, and I can play the guitar. I’ve been to Astro Camps multiple times as a camper, and I was on staff last year, and I hope to have fun at Astro Camp this year as well!
Team Leader: Emily Jardine
Hello!! My name is Emily jardine and I am so excited to be working at astro camp this year!! I just finished my junior year and I’m excited to see what my senior year holds. I love the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and have found some of my greatest passions through these subjects. I hope to one day study at Utah State University with a major in Architecture. I have attended Astro Camp as a camper for the last four years and I fell completely in love with the program. So, the obvious option was to become a team leader, right? I am so excited to be able to work with you and your kids this summer and I hope to make it as great of an experience for them as it was for me.
