Samantha Thyne (CIT)


It’s Sam’s 9th summer on staff, and this year she’ll be exchanging surf for turf as she steps into her new role as CIT Co-Leader. "I’ll miss the Waterfront, but I’m very excited for a new challenge…there’s no better way to spend a summer than hanging out with great kids and some of the nicest, happiest people on earth.” (Sam was on the Waterfront for seven summers, and was a Waterfront supervisor for the past two.)

Sam graduated from Emmanuel College in 2016 with a degree in Art Therapy, and is currently finishing a Master’s program in School Counseling at UMass Boston. Her hobbies include painting, music, and cooking, and her “hidden talents” include wiggling her nose like a bunny and finger painting. (Sam’s finger painting skills never cease to amaze campers and staff alike each year at the Counselor Talent Show!) Her favorite part of camp is building relationships with campers and seeing them grow and develop new skills and friendships throughout their time at camp.
