With Stephanie Emery
Stephanie Emery is a Lifetime Member of the Girl Scouts and the owner of Adventure Bus -an affordable way for like-minded people from all over to get together, get outside, see the world, and have fun with nature.
Originally from West Paris, Maine, Stephanie spent her summers at Girl Scouts of Maine’s Camp Pondicherry where her mother was the nurse. Her days were filled with hiking, swimming, canoeing, and various outdoor adventures. It was here that she learned essential survival and leadership skills she puts into use today.
After college, Stephanie started a private teaching studio in Boston, giving lessons on flute, recorder, saxophone, and clarinet. Although she found the job extremely rewarding, the outdoors came knocking.
In the summer of 2002, Stephanie took a two-week tour called the Best of the National Parks with a company called Adventure Bus that would turn out to be a life-changing experience.
Hoping to spend the school year teaching, and summers on the Adventure Bus, Stephanie went on multiple tours, aiming to convince the owner that she would be an asset to the company. Little did she know that a year later, she would become the owner!
Fast forward to 2023 and Stephanie has been the owner of Adventure Bus for twenty years! She has created countless new trips from Arizona to Alaska and back to her home state of Maine. She is very proud and thankful of the extended family Adventure Bus has become.
Today, Stephanie and I will be exploring her path from Camp Pondicherry to the owner of an outdoor adventure company – and how the two ventures are unequivocally intertwined.
