Spencer Lewis - Global Engagement Student Work Crew Member
Spencer Lewis (he/him) is a first-year student from the southernmost end of Denver, CO. He is currently studying for a major in Outdoor Leadership Studies, with a minor in Environmental Sciences.
Spencer is an outlier in the fact that he has done little traveling abroad, but he’s made up for this lack of international travel by exploring the breadth of the United States. Since the age of 6, he’s spent every summer outdoors, traveling from state to state. From the high limestone towers of Big Bend National Park, across the mighty Rockies, to the rhododendron arbors of the Smoky Mountains. After graduating high school, he spent his two gap years guiding Class V Whitewater along the Colorado river, leading climbing and canyoneering trips in the Southeast, and studying for his WFR and WEMT. Impassioned by his travels, he’s all for discovering opportunities for outdoor experiences across the globe.
When he’s not on campus in his bare feet, Spencer’s hobbies encompass nearly anything there is to do outdoors. You’ll find him climbing, kayaking, backpacking, or just spending time playing his guitar in the mountains. Beyond the simple pleasures of mountain life, Spencer wants to become a wilderness therapist, and work with adolescents struggling with mental health, addiction, and self-confidence.
