CATT

Director

New Britian, CT USA

Greetings and Salutations one and all!!! I am so very happy to be joining the amazing Camp Howe family for the 2016 season! This will be my 10th year learning and growing here at Howe and my 18th year working as camp professional. Before coming to Camp Howe I held positions at both Girl Scouts and YMCA camps as Unit Leader, Challenge Course/Adventure Director, CIT/ LIT Director, Adventure Trip Leader, Adventure Day Trip Director, Program Director, Assistant Director and Camp Director. When I’m not at Camp Howe I work as a Program Facilitator at an outdoor center teaching social skills and teambuilding, as well as a Teacher’s Aide at a child care center. I truly love working with children unplugged and in the out of doors. I believe it is where the magic of friendship and the understanding of the world around you truly can happen. I can’t wait to see all the new and returning faces this summer enjoying new adventures.
