Position: Canine Companion

Nova was born under the Supermoon, where his astronomical name comes from, “Supernova.” He is one of our more senior canines and has spent a good deal of time with our adolescent girl’s groups but has recently been in our young adult group. He loves to sit on laps, especially around the fire. Our students often find Nova wiggling around their tents in the morning to say “hello.” Nova brings out the gentle side of our students. He reminds our students to slow down, be present, and when on hikes to “stop and smell the sage and juniper”. Nova is an avid napper and holds our canine record for the most naps and silly sleep noises. Nova is super cuddly, loves attention, and is generally calm and chill until his time comes to go off-leash, and then his energy skyrockets.
