Laura Kaufman, Overnight Camp Program Director

 

Laura is a seasoned professional when it comes to interacting with teens and young adults. She has been teaching math at the high school level since 1999.

 

The ability to create daily lesson plans has helped Laura become dynamic in her Overnight Camp program planning, while also enabling her to shift direction at a moment’s notice, should there be a change in the parameters of a planned situation. Taking into consideration the vast differences between counselors in terms of background and experience, Laura draws upon her 15 years of classroom time to make sure everyone feels involved and comfortable with the tasks at hand. Since the primary goal of Overnight Camp is to provide a fun, nurturing, and safe camping experience for the children, Laura helps to foster trust, flexibility, a good work ethic, and team-building among her counselors, all of which lead to a memorable week of camp.
