Franny’s Farm Summer Camp – Meet The Camp Director!
Cyn Slingsby, Camp Director
When I was young….I was born in Appalachian Mountains of TN and raised by parents that valued their community and helped their neighbors. I grew up with an appreciation for the outdoors and went to camps in NC.
Why I love camp: Camp is where friendships, broadening experiences, and a love for learning were fostered. I love the silliness, singing, personal growth and unique opportunities that camp offers. I loved being a camper so much, I became a counselor so I could share, teach & inspire kids. I want each camper to carry the experience, joy & memories as I have.
Education: I went to college in the midwest where I earned a degree in education.
Oregon was my home for the following 18 years where, among other things, I taught art at a camp, was a firefighter, and was blessed with having two healthy daughters. We moved to Asheville in 2013 where I have continued in education with Asheville schools.
What I love best about teaching: Seeing the proverbial light go off when a child is trying something new and loves it is one of the best gifts of being a teacher and parent.
Hobbies: Playing with my daughters, snacking from our garden, riding bikes, hiking with our dog, and making art.
Why Farm Camp? I met Frances & Jeff right after moving here and have watched them build their farm! I am impressed with their dedication and invitation to being a part of sustainable farming. It’s been a dream of “Farmer Franny” to have summer camp & we share so many similar experiences and goals. The stars have aligned for us to launch farm camp and our team is excited about this limitless venture!
And a few more reasons…. I firmly believe that kids can access their best self outdoors. Let’s collaborate as parents, teachers, community and friends to give our children, our hope for the future, an opportunity to play outside, learn about their food, be in a healthy environment, be joyful and silly and have fun!
