Tom and Catherine Holland
Originally from the midwest, Tom and Catherine Holland are proud to be members of the Wilderness Adventures team.
Tom attended Wilderness Adventures as a teenager and discovered a passion for adventure and outdoor education during this time. The program led him to get involved in the summer camp industry while in college. An award-winning educator, Tom spent three years teaching social studies at the secondary level before he left the classroom to work at a camp in northwest Wyoming. After two years on the team, he was named the Executive Director, a role he held for six years. In 2013, he went on to work for the American Camp Association and held the roles of Chief Foundation Officer and Chief Executive Officer.
Known as a leading expert on the camp experience, Tom has spoken at both national and international conferences on youth development, the camp experience and children in the outdoors. He holds a B.A. in secondary education and an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis. Tom is a board member of the Grand Teton National Park Foundation and City Kids Wilderness Project.
Catherine’s passion for teaching children in the outdoors is partnered with her passion for nutrition and the culinary arts. As a registered dietician with a B.S. in culinary arts from Saint Louis University, she has always brought a wealth of knowledge to meal planning and food preparation for backcountry trips. In the world of camp, Catherine has served in a variety of roles including head chef, assistant director and director of a summer camp in northwest Wyoming. Outside of camp, Catherine has worked as a registered dietician and certified diabetic educator at the hospital in Jackson, Wyoming.
Both Tom and Catherine love volunteering in various capacities in the Jackson Hole community and love to get outside with their four kids.
