Owen Langbart, Owner/Director
“Camp is absolutely the perfect place for young people to discover who they are and become the best versions of themselves.”
Owen strongly believes in the value of the camp experience, especially for today’s kids who need to get “unplugged,” make lifelong friendships and become more confident and independent. He has been a camp professional for over 25 years, and serves as an American Camp Association visitor who assists other camps with the accreditation process. Owen earned his B.A. in Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania. During the year, he lives in New York City with his wife, Daria, and their three daughters, Evelyn, Thea and Josie. Sometimes they sing and dance to camp songs in their kitchen.
“Every child should have the opportunity to experience summer camp. As well as building self confidence and self esteem, it also provides friends and memories to last a lifetime!”
Andy has 20 years of camp experience. Having grown up in England, Andy now lives full time on Long Island, NY with his fiancee Kait.

Andy received his BA in Leisure Management and Childhood Development from Manchester University and a HND (Higher National Diploma) in Sports Conditioning and Coaching from The University of the West of England.
“Camp is a great environment for kids to learn teamwork and respect for each other. Camp is like a giant sleepover, but even more fun!”
Andrea first went to day camp when she was three years old, and has spent almost every summer since then at camp. She is a sports fanatic who understands the great impact camp can have on a child’s life. When she’s not at camp, Andrea brings her energy and infectious enthusiasm to her position as a science teacher in New York City. She has also completed the NYC Marathon twice and has run half marathons in 32 states (and counting). Andrea received her B.A. and her Masters in Science Education from Binghamton University.
“Camp is a place where you can do what you want to do, be who you want to be and have the best experiences of your life!“
