Having been a part of our summer family for over 20 years, Amanda embodies everything that makes Camp Chinqueka a summer tradition since 1955. As Director, she has one main goal in mind – to create the opportunity for as many girls as possible to have the same exceptional camping experience that she had.
Amanda lives in the Tri-State area and is in contact with our past, present, and future Chinqueka families. She attends many of the camp fairs, reunions and home visits in the area and also performs tours of Chinqueka and Awosting year round. She is an active volunteer for the American Camping Association and currently the Chair of the 2018-2019 ACA NY/NJ E.P.I.C. Committee. If you are interested in speaking with her about camp for this or next summer, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jenn is the Assistant Director at Camp Chinqueka and has over 10 years of experience working with children. She spent many summers at an overnight camp in Pennsylvania and has experience at day camps and in outdoor education. Most recently she was the Operations Director for a prestigious youth development organization in New York City. Jenn brings a fun spin to our day to day life at camp – always coming up with creative new programming ideas and activity lessons. She can be found running around camp, usually with walkie talkie in hand, making sure camp runs smoothly for our campers and counselors!
Jenn lives in the Tri-State area and has a degree in Children and Youth Studies from Brooklyn College.
