My name is Ben Goodwin and I am an experienced wilderness tripper. From canoeing through the lakes and streams of Northern Wisconsin, kayaking in the Apostle Islands, and backpacking in the Beartooth Mountain Range of Montana, I have participated in numerous wilderness expeditions. My greatest attribute as a leader is my exceptional soft skills because they allow me to communicate effectively with a wide variety of people. I am currently a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin - Madison where I am pursueing a degree in Strategic Communications. Last summer I worked as a Counselor and Trip Leader for Camp Manito-wish YMCA and will be returning there to do the same during the summer of 2014.
