More About Camp Monsters

These are the stories of impossible encounters with impossible creatures in the wildest corners of North America. A wolf man with bat wings thirty feet across. An enormous eel in America’s most popular lake. A frog half the size of a man. Something terrible that howls in the Ozark nights. We’ll travel the country, sit around campfires and talk about that thing that ran across the trail in the middle of the night, just beyond the beam of your flashlight. Come closer to the fire. Let’s hear the next legend.

The Team

Weston Davis, Writer and host

Weston Davis was born in Seattle and became a member of the REI Co-op shortly after. The urge to ramble took him to the Midwest, where for a decade or more he acted, wrote, sang, danced, begged and borrowed–from the end of a jetty in Texas to a beautiful graveyard in Michigan and most places in between. His favorite time was spent with the the Strange Tree Group in Chicago. Family and the promise of real mountains brought him home to Washington, where he gets to enjoy both. He's been honored to write and perform the Camp Monsters Podcast since its debut in 2019. Headshot provided by the talented Tyler Core.

Nick Patri, Editor

Nick Patri has been on the Camp Monsters team since 2019. His favorite episodes so far include: The Traveler, Krampus, and Spirit Lake. Go check them out. Beyond editing the show, Nick manages a small team of creatives making podcasts, audiobooks, and videos for all types of businesses and individuals. Find him on LinkedIn. He’s based in Seattle, spending his summers kayaking and playing volleyball, and his winters watching films and walking his dog in the rain.

Jenny Barber

Jenny Barber leads the podcast program at the Co-op and is a Producer on the Camp Monsters team. Outside of the studio you can find her creating something delicious (and usually sweet) in the kitchen or embarking on her next outdoor adventure with a pack full of snacks. REI member since 2021.

Chelsea Davis, Senior Producer
