Trip Leader: Costa Rica Active 1 & Costa Rica Discovery 2
Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, Cooper has attended three Bold Earth trips in the past visiting Colorado, Utah and Washington. He now spends the better part of his year in Hamilton, New York, attending Colgate University. There, he is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in both Philosophy and Economics. When he is not in the library studying, you can catch him in the DJ booth where he runs his own radio show, or skating on the ice with the club hockey team. He also is an avid skier and loves to drive to the Adirondacks to ski at Gore and Whiteface Mountain when there is plentiful snow. In general, Cooper loves to be in nature and has been lucky enough to work outside for the last three summers, including working as a lifeguard at Lake Michigan beaches and as a ranch hand in beautiful Montana. He is so excited to provide amazing outdoor experiences to his students just like his trip leaders did for him. Cooper is certified in CPR and has been trained as a wilderness first responder.
