Matt Poppleton: An Introduction

Greetings! To say that I am excited for this new opportunity to be the Director for Camp Widjiwagan would be an understatement. In many ways this feels like a dream job that I’ve been thinking about for years. I’m a little under a month into the job and I’ve been so impressed with the warm welcome I’ve received from staff, board, campers, and the greater Widji community. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this great team and look forward to reacquainting myself with everyone involved.

Widji’s Outdoor Learning Program will be wrapping up their Spring season as I head up to Camp around Memorial Day Weekend. I’ll be joined a few weeks later by my family; wife Kristen, kids Rachel (12), Will (10) and our dog Kikkan. The impact that Widji experiences have on individuals throughout the year is tremendous. I am excited to join this team and help further Widji’s mission of instilling respect in youth though wilderness adventure and environmental education.
