Raquel has called ICC her second home for most of her life, due to the many wonderful memories she’s made there; however, although she is very familiar with ICC, this will be Raquel’s first summer as a hired staff member. Her favorite thing about ICC is the peaceful atmosphere and the energy of the kids that come to camp.
Raquel enjoys exploring, learning, doing anything and everything God gives her the ability for. Her hobbies include making art and music, hiking, reading, writing, learning languages and playing with kids. She loves getting to know everyone she meets, whether they are young or old, human or animal. One of her unique talents is her near inability to get lost.
