Staff Spotlight - Kim McCormack

Every camp needs someone that helps with lots of different things. There is very little at camp that Kim McCormack doesn't help with. As our Program Assistant, she helps put the daily and weekly program together. When it rains at camp, Kim is the person making sure that our campers have something to do. She coordinates our weekly Cruiser (cabin) Day. She also heads up our horseback riding program. These are just some of the many things that Kim does to help keep camp running.

During the rest of the year Kim teaches 7th grade science in Evergreen, Colorado. One of her favorite off season activities has been taking groups of students from her school to Sea Camp. Kim and her husband Jeff (our CIT Director) are raising two great kids, Lake (who will be a camper for the first time this summer) and Summer (who will celebrate her first birthday in August). We're thrilled to have Kim back for her 15th summer.
