Executive Director

Licensed New Jersey school teacher, Licensed NYC teacher, Young People's Day Camp Counselor, Assistant Director, Director and current Executive Director. As a school teacher for over 15 years and a part of Young People's Day Camp for the past 20 years, we have developed a safe, fun-filled and active environment for our families. The approach of Young People's Day Camp that we have developed is a complete family first environment, where we focus on the quality of care rather than the quantity. Your children are our children and they are treated the same way that we treat our own kids. Year after year we provide an amazing summer experience at YPDC and I am so happy to have had the opportunity to and priviledge to be a part of Young People's Day Camp for as long as I have. We can't wait for the summer and to have your children be a part of our family!

I have been a part of the Young People’s Day Camp family since 2000. I have held many positions at YPDC but I am most excited about returning as the Co-Director of our Staten Island camp!

I have always enjoyed summers at camp and will make every effort to personalize the camp experience and pay close attention to your child’s unique interests. Camp is a special experience for children and we make every effort to treat your children as our own.

As a final note, I would like to welcome new campers to the YPDC family!
