Emily Gorman

Equestrian Director

Emily grew up in Kent, England and graduated from the University of Leicester in 2011 with a BA in Sociology. This will be Emily’s tenth consecutive summer at Frost Valley YMCA helping to create diverse, creative and inclusive equestrian programs for campers from all backgrounds and abilities. While Emily was a horse camper herself, she knows first hand what it takes to make a summer incredible for each and every camper! Emily is an American Camp Association (ACA) standards visitor, meaning she travels to different camps around the country making sure that camps are upholding the highest safety standards for all children in their care. Emily is also a Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) certified riding instructor in both English and Western disciplines. Most recently, however, the YMCA of the USA recently recognized 30 emerging leaders from YMCAs across the country and Emily was among those honored. In her free time, Emily enjoys spending time with her two dogs, Toby and Jake, riding horses, hiking, skiing, traveling… anything outside!
