Sarah “Fluke” Leshay and Jess “Crunch” Barkley are excited to be
co-directing Camp Runels together this summer. For both, camp is a
place where girls can stretch to try new things, grow in their
independence and make lifelong memories and friends. They are
passionate about creating a dynamic, safe and fun camp program at Runels.
Fluke and Crunch are both entering their eighth summer working at
Runels—this will be Fluke’s eighth summer as director and Crunch’s
fourth. During the school year, both Fluke and Crunch are teachers.
Fluke teaches high school science while Crunch teaches middle school
special education. Fluke received her BS and MAT from Northeastern
University, while Crunch received her BA from West Virginia Wesleyan
and her MSED from Simmons College. They love to spend time with their
Girl Scout troops as well! Between them, they have 35 Cadettes,
Seniors and Ambassadors in their two troops!
