Rayna began working at camp in 2006 as an activity aide, she then became a counselor for nearly a decade before transitioning to camp director. Camp is what solidified Rayna’s decision to become a special education teacher. She has been teaching in Fremont for the past seven years. When Rayna is not at camp you can find her cheering on the A’s with her husband and daughter!

As my mom pulled up to take me home Laura asked if I was coming back the next day. I promised her I would. This is a promise I have not broken for the past nine years. I became a counselor when I turned eighteen, and I’ve made it to 27 straight camps. Going into my first time at ENN I was counting down the days until it was over, now I count the days until the next camp. If you know of a place that you think is better than the Exceptional Needs Network at Camp Arroyo, point it out, because I’m not going to believe you until I see it. – Camp Counselor
ENN is one of the most amazing organizations I have had the honor of working with. They culminate amazing relationships and foster memories that last a lifetime and I am so lucky to be apart of the ENN family! – Camp Counselor
Serving as a Camp Counselor at Camp ENN is incredibly rewarding! I get a new special friend for a week and memories for a lifetime. I love serving a child or teen with special needs and being in a community where special individuals are respected, celebrated, and loved. Everyone is supportive and excited to be there, it’s a blessing to be part of this community of selfless and loving people – Camp Counselor
