Meet the Team

Who You Will Meet at Warren

Because we know staff is the most important part of a camp experience, we take great care to hire and train qualified, enthusiastic staff. We look for leadership skills, prior experience working with children, decision-making capabilities, respect for the environment and safety awareness.

Our year-round staff includes an executive director, program director, administrative coordinator and site manager. During the summer, we bring in high school, college and graduate students as counselors and specialists.

All staff members are certified in CPR and First Aid. Waterfront specialists are certified lifeguards, and as required, others are certified as an EMT, First Responder or have been trained in Wilderness First Aid.

Camp Warren has been an incredible constant in my life, whether I was a camper, counselor, volunteer, or YMCA team member. For me, Warren has always been a place to discover and develop, and it has always been a place to practice independence and make new connections. 

I count myself lucky that my role at Warren gives me a chance to help campers grow. There’s nothing quite like watching campers gain self-confidence, learn problem-solving skills, and build community. And of course, outdoor adventures provide much-needed opportunities to “unplug” and connect with nature.

I’m looking forward to an amazing summer on Half Moon Lake. See you soon!
