Counselor 2017 - 2019
Camp is home away from home and every counselor and camper make up a huge family that I’ll always be proud to be part of.
SIT (2010), Counselor (2011,2012), Head Counselor (2013), Assistant Director (2014), Summer Director Intern (2016), Summer Director (2018)
"As a camper, I believed Camp to be the most magical place on earth. It wasn’t until I became a counselor and then later a member of the administration that I realized I was a part of creating that magic. There’s nothing more rewarding than gifting that feeling of belonging to someone else.”
“AYF Camp Haiastan served as my stepping stone to developing life skills and strategies, such as communication, decision-making, creative thinking, and how to be sensitive and interact with people of all ages. These skills have helped me grow professionally outside of camp, all while making memories with my life-long friends.”
