Phil joined the High 5 team as a lead trainer in 2015. Originally from England, Phil first came to the US in 2008 working as an Outdoor Educator and Challenge Course Coordinator at the New York YMCA Camp. It was here that his love for the Adventure Education field was ignited, discovering the joy and rewards playing and teaching inside and out alongside such a varied range of people, all who benefit from the the experience. His work in the realms of summer camp, outdoor education, and physical education give him an invaluable perspective for working with of High 5’s varied clientele. Phil is so excited and honored to have been welcomed into the High 5 family and looks forward to bringing his passion and strong sense of play to the team. He believes that each experience with every group member is a learning opportunity for him, no matter who he’s working with. He has as much to learn from youth as youth can learn from him.
