Hello all! I started with YPDC as a counselor way back in 2000. I have held many different positions within YPDC and each responsibility I have taken on I have worked my hardest to be successful. Currently, I am Keith’s Co-Director at Young People’s and I am there each day, handling many of the day-to-day activities. In addition to my work with Young People’s Day Camp, I also work with instructional support students with the New York City Department of Education and hold education certification in both New York and New Jersey.
Being a part of this fantastic organization for so long has allowed me to play an important role in many of our campers’ lives. I feel Young People's Day Camp treats our campers and their loved ones as much more than people who come and go every summer. They are truly treated like members of our own families and we are there, at any time, for anything they may need.
