Hello Lincoln Summer Camp Family,
We hope you enjoyed your fall and are looking forward to an exciting 2017. As the new year begins, we are already setting to work on the 2017 camp season and are hoping you and your camper will be joining us.
After two extremely successful years at the helm of Lincoln Summer Camp, Stacey Mulroy will be transitioning back to the full-time Codman Pool director position this year. In light of this change, we, Audrey Levin, Joe Colombo, and Sarah Costa, will be stepping into the role as Camp Directors at Lincoln Summer Camp. We hope you will join us in thanking Stacey for all her hard work and dedication to the camp. We look forward to continuing all the successes of the past two years. Of course, through our collaboration with Codman Pool and Stacey’s role as the Assistant Director of the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department, she will continue to be an integral part of our camp and support all the great the work we do.
The 3 of us bring a great deal of experience and expertise to Lincoln Summer Camp:
Audrey has been at Lincoln Summer Camp for 10 years. From counselor, to Arts and Crafts Specialist, to Program Director for the past two years, Audrey has been dedicated to creating summer memories for Lincoln Summer Campers for many years. When not at camp Audrey is a first grade teacher in Lowell, MA. She holds a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education as well as Bachelors of Arts in History from UMass Amherst. Audrey will focus primarily on our K-5 program.
Joe has been at Lincoln Summer Camp the past two summers serving as a Program Director. Before coming to Lincoln Summer Camp, Joe spent the previous 11 years at Camp Summer Fun in Mount Pleasant, NY. At Camp Summer Fun he served as a counselor, Head Counselor, and Activity Specialist, before taking over a Camp Director in 2012. Joe knows Lincoln well, as when he is not at camp, Joe serves as a 3rd grade teacher at Lincoln School. He holds a Bachelors of Science dual degree in Elementary and Special Education from Boston University. He also has a Masters of Education in Educational Technology as well as a Certificate of Advanced Professional Studies in the Teaching of Mathematics from Lesley University. Joe will focus primarily on our 6-8 program.
Sarah has been at Lincoln Summer Camp for the past 5 years. She served as the director of Kindercamp Program for 3 years, and as a Program Director the past two. Before coming to Lincoln Summer Camp, Sarah worked at summer camps since 2004. Sarah has worked at both day and overnight camps, in a host of positions, and she brings all of these experiences to us at LSC. She holds a Bachelors of Science dual degree in Elementary and Special Education from Boston University. She also has a Masters of Education in Educational Technology as well as a Certificate of Advanced Professional Studies in the Teaching of Mathematics from Lesley University. Sarah will focus primarily on our K-5 program.
We all share some fundamental philosophies about what we believe summer camp should be:
- Summer camp should be a place where campers feel free to express themselves and celebrate all the joys of childhood.
- Camper safety should always come first.
- Summer camp should be a place where old friendships are fostered and new friendships are created.
- Summer camp should be the place to try something new: from stepping out on stage to learning a new sport.
- Summer camp should be memorable: campers should experience special moments, success, and relationships that they carry with them far beyond the summer.
We are very excited to begin this next chapter at Lincoln Summer Camp. Please stay tuned to the blog for updates about the program, upcoming information sessions, and registration information.
