Returning for her 9th Sewataro summer, Amy is delighted to be a part of “Team Emmy Maternity Leave!” A Fox Supervisor for five years, shifting from the leadership team to the office crew is a bit bittersweet, but Amy is looking forward to seeing camp from a different angle. “I love camp! I feel happy as soon as I drive onto the property…there’s something very magical about Sewataro, and I’m grateful to be a part of it.”
A graduate of Boston University’s College of Communication, Amy spent several years working in television, as a Special Projects Producer, and as a Researcher for the PBS Kids show ZOOM! “Then I had my kids and changed direction. When I took the job at camp nine years ago, I had no idea I was stepping into something that would become such an important part of my life. This is my summer family…it really feels like this is where I belong.”
Outside of camp, Amy is an independent movement and wellness educator, and this past September earned her Nia Black Belt (the culmination of a seven year journey). Amy also loves creative writing, a hobby she often puts to use for Sewataro’s Friday Special Events. “Working with the campers and staff brought me tremendous joy, as did working behind the scenes on Friday Specials, especially cooking up ideas and collaborating with various staff members to bring it all to life and then seeing the campers’ faces at the grassy bowl!”
In her spare time, she can be found cheering and chatting on the sidelines of her kids’ sports games, and spending time with family and friends. Her favorite thing about Camp Sewataro? “It’s hard to pick just one thing,” she says, adding, “There’s nothing better than watching happy kids engaged with each other and with happy counselors…that’s what we strive for on a daily basis.” Amy “LOVES” the Sewataro community…and we love her!
