    Skills and Experience

    Background: Gabi is one of our newest CBW Camp Counselors along with Nikki! She helps manage the Play Yards, cleans the Cabins and Lobby and helps with anything else we need around Camp. She has always been around dogs and loves seeing how happy they can be when they play. So it just felt right for her to work with them professionally.

    What I love most about my job: Gabi loves interacting with all the dogs in the Play Yards and meeting new dogs almost every day! The worst part of her job is when it gets a little crazy and she has to give a dog a time out.
