Course Leader / Therapist
Bogie grew up in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, enjoying winters skiing at Sugarloaf Mountain and summers at a YMCA camp on Lake Winnipesaukee. It was at this camp that Bogie first discovered a passion for working with people in nature.
Bogie earned a degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and went on to travel throughout Central and South America, learning Spanish and gaining an appreciation for travel and exploration. Bogie returned to New England to work at True North and began a long, meaningful, and formative career as a guide. Passionate about this work, Bogie earned both a Master of Social Work and a Master of Science in Outdoor Education at the University of New Hampshire. Bogie specialized in adventure therapy, and participated in national research focusing on wilderness therapy. Bogie is currently conducting a research study at True North exploring the program’s impact on family functioning and connection.
Bogie lives in Waterbury, VT with his fiancé Kathleen, who teaches special education in a local elementary school. Bogie loves being outside. Chopping firewood, running through the woods, skiing, and camping are all favorite pursuits. Bogie also enjoys canoeing and water skiing.
