Team Leader: Kenzie Carter
Hi! My name is Kenzie Carter and I’m 17 years old. I just finished my junior year at Davis high school. I was a camper for 5 years and attended 6 camps. This is now my second year as staff. I completely fell in love with space and science through astro camp and have always loved STEM subjects. After high school I plan on getting my pilot’s license and a degree in aerospace engineering. Hopefully I’ll be attending college in Oregon, my favorite place. A fun fact about me is that I have celiacs disease so I can’t eat gluten. Along with space I also love theatre, singing and dancing and have being doing those since I was 5 years old. I am so excited to work with both the parents and the campers this summer and help them to find a love for space, science and team work!
Team Leader: Ashlyn Fackrell
Hi! My name is Ashlyn Fackrell and I am 16 years old. This is my first year on staff, but I have at least 8 years of camps under my belt and many years prior to that being involved with Astro Camp as a whole. I could not be more excited for camp this year!!! I know that it will not be the same as camps have been, and that will make things more difficult, but virtual camps will be so fun and camp is what you make of it! Fun fact, my mom Jennifer was a camper way back when Ed and Lois began this and even did staff in the late 90s, so that makes me the first second generation!
I love all things STEM. I still am bouncing between different professions, but I would love to be an aerospace engineer or work with law enforcement. In my free time I like to sew, bake, and spend time with my friends and family. I am a black belt and am currently working on getting my 2nd degree black belt, but that is where I work outside of Astro Camp, teaching Martial Arts.
Team Leader: Daniel Fox-Patterson
Hi! My name is Daniel and I am so excited to work with Astro Camp for a second season! I am an eccentric, motivated, determined worker who loves to make the best out of every situation. I like to call Astro Camp my second home because it is such a welcoming environment for anyone who makes the choice to come. I’ve been going to astro camp since I was around 7-8 years old and it has changed my life in every possible way! Some of my favorite things to do are: sell shoes, talk to people (probably too much!) and building with legos! I am also freshly graduated from high school, I have participated in DECA tournaments, and Marketing competitions at my high school (Northridge high). I am applying for Weber State University to get a masters in marketing.
The Fixer: Ryan Jensen
Even as the spouse of the director, it’s hard to understand how amazing Astro Camp is from the stories told among the best of friends, but after experiencing Astro Camp for myself I can’t wait to return to living in a school with my family all summer helping with security, chaperoning and saving the day.
I am a petroleum geologist, web designer and handyman who loves space and all things science. I enjoy teaching, adventure, and being a dad.
