Lucy is a co-owner of The Aerial Lab, and has been working in the summer camp industry since 2004, mostly at Camp Augusta in Nevada City. With 10 years of aerial dance and circus experience, she teaches classes to adults and children in aerial fabric, trapeze, sling and rope. Originally from England, Lucy has traveled and lived in a handful of countries, including Wales, Italy, New Zealand, and now the US. She loves the freedom, strength, flexibility and creativity that comes from working in the circus industry, and believes that both children and adults have more fun taking care of their body and their minds by staying active in such a playful and adaptable way. Away from the studio, Lucy trains in agility with her Border Collie, Oso, bakes sourdough bread, and LOVES to read just about anything.
Desmond is the manager and a co-owner of Gold Crush Climbing Gym. Having discovered climbing while attending UC Santa Barbara in 2007, climbing inevitably phased in an out of his life as he explored education and small-business pursuits. From Ojai Valley School summer camps to substitute teaching kindergarten through highschool, Desmond is comfortable engaging with kids of all ages and backgrounds.
Now as a dad of two, he finds himself happily engaged in forest exploration, mud puddles, and bugs.
