Meet our 2019 Staff – Satchel Toole

Assistant Director

Satchel Toole is a Brunswick, ME native who spent two summers as a camper at Pine Island and several years as a counselor teaching riflery and fly-fishing. Last summer Satchel held the coveted position of Expedition Camp Leader (along with his co-leader, Cole Gibson) and this year we’re fortunate to have both Satchel and Cole return as our Assistant Directors. Satchel holds a Bachelor of the Arts in Economics and Environmental Studies and a minor in Spanish from Saint Lawrence University. He is a Wilderness First Responder. This will be Satchel’s 8th summer at Pine Island. He is the youngest of three brothers who all attended, worked, and now volunteer regularly at Pine Island. Satchel’s mother, Sandy Holland, is famous in the Pine Island community for providing delicious baked goods for our annual NYC Campfire and volunteer events.
