I can't wait to meet each one of you at Park's Summer Day Camps this summer!!!
My name is Jen and I am thrilled to be serving as the new Camp Director at Park! So, just a quick background about me...I am married to Nick and we have a 4 year old son, Jacob, and a dog, Phoebe. We are new to Buffalo, but are not new to camps and working with youth of all ages. I have spent 15 summers working at camps in pretty much every role from counselor to lifeguard, spending 5 of those years as program director and 6 as the director. In between, I have also taught every age from preschool through high school and love each age.
One thing I believe is that camp is a magical place. Friendships are forged over s'mores and soccer. We get opportunities to try new activities, be creative and grow. Silliness and fun are a priority while being safe and cared for. I believe in the power that camp changes lives every day.
For this 83rd summer of Park Camps, I can't wait to continue the magic, to learn the traditions, and keep the fun-meter at the EPIC level. I want to hear your stories and memories and all of the wonderful parts of Park Camps that make it special to each camper, each parent, and each staff.
Summer can not come soon enough!
Happy Trails to you,
