Sam Rueter


Sam is a first-year student at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, who’s back for his twelfth summer at Sewataro (fourth on staff). While away at school, Sam volunteers with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, and he’s also the sports columnist for his school newspaper, “The Scarlet & Black.” Sam plans to double-major in English and Psychology.

Sam hails from Winchester, MA, and is a graduate of the Cambridge School of Weston. He says the most rewarding part of being a counselor is witnessing campers’ growth. “Seeing shy campers break out of their shells and engage in activities…or seeing more talkative campers become adept listeners and tribe-mates…that’s what makes the summer worthwhile for me.” In his free time, Sam enjoys soccer, tennis, reading, and writing poetry.
