mail I hit the only homerun of my life at Camp Hollis. I was ten years old and enjoying one of my five summers as a Hollis camper. I was a klutzy kid and not very athletic, but, as summer camps have been known to do, hitting that ball “out of the park” showed me a part of myself I wasn’t aware of. That homerun followed me through my life as a symbol of what I can achieve with determination. I ended up working my way through college at Camp Hollis and then became its year-round director from 1990 until 2011. Working there and now helping out with the Friends of Camp Hollis, has provided me the opportunity to give back to the camp and to observe others finding new, powerful resources in themselves—watching more than a few of them hit their own homeruns.

Treasurer

mail I am VP of Lending at Oswego County Federal Credit Union. In the Credit Union, it’s all about helping people. Every day, I get to help our members enhance their lives, whether that is through their finances or just putting a smile on their face. I joined the FOCH board because Camp Hollis is an important place in our community.  I have attended family events there and my brother was a counselor at camp, so I know that camp is such a good experience for children. I love being able to work with FOCH to help provide that opportunity for all children in Oswego County.

mail I was a camper at Camp Hollis in the ‘60s for two years. When I went we were able to stay at the camp for 2 weeks at a time and those two weeks were the best memories I have growing up. Camp Hollis has a special place in my heart. I joined the board because I would love to learn more about camp and all that it has to offer.

mail Born and raised in Oswego County I knew of Camp Hollis; however, I never had the opportunity to attend as a youngster.  Most of my career I have been employed in the field of education in elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as colleges and a youth-at-risk institute.  Since becoming involved with Camp Hollis as the secretary/administrative assistant ten years ago and as a board member three years ago, I have seen the significant and positive impact it has had on children as campers, counselors, and the young-at-heart.  It is my hope that I can be instrumental in helping as many children as possible enjoy the camping experience offered at Camp Hollis.

mail For most of my life I've worked with kids - as a teacher, tutor, caseworker and coach. For the past 18 years, I've worked at Camp Hollis on the weekends so that families and groups can enjoy the great facility for graduation parties, weddings, family reunions and other events. I know what an asset Camp Hollis is to our community. I'm proud to serve on Friends of Camp Hollis and help in any way I can.

mail I’ve spent my entire professional career working with children, and it can all be traced back to my roots at Camp Hollis. I spent six summers as a Camp Hollis Staffer and many more as a camper and volunteer. My experiences at Camp Hollis geared my life towards working with youth. I spent several years teaching special education and then spent over 5 years working for various YMCA Associations in the Resident/Day Camp and Child Care realms. My career has come full circle back to Camp Hollis and I’m excited to serve in the role as Coordinator of Recreation and Youth Development with Oswego County Parks and Recreation.
