Ari Kamp (RPTA ‘15), Staff WriterAri Kamp
Kamp is a Montana native, born and raised in the town of Bozeman, which she likens to San Luis Obispo. She grew up with a strong outdoor presence in her life that has influenced her decision to be involved with RPTA with an Outdoor Adventure emphasis. She hopes to work with others to generate rewarding experiences in an outdoor setting while also having a positive effect on the environment. She is most in her element when she is on or by the water and can take part in physically engaging and fun activities such as paddle boarding and hiking.

See her feature in the Winter 2014 edition of "The Report!"

Beatton grew up in Santa Cruz, CA, where she developed a love for the ocean, beach volleyball, and San Francisco Giants baseball. With a concentration in Sport Management, she hopes to someday work for a major league baseball team. She took a stride towards that goal by serving as a Junior Giants Ambassador in the summer of 2013. Beatton is happy to be a part of an RPTA family filled with great people and exciting opportunities.


Anna Bach (RPTA ’17), Staff WriterAnna Bach
As a first year student at Cal Poly, Bach is excited for the opportunity to be on staff for The Report as a way to learn more about RPTA in a unique way. Bach grew up in Folsom, CA and recently moved to Orange County. She loves the beach, spending time with friends and family, and all things Disney.
