Camp Director – Patti Steinman

Camp Director Patti Steinman has been part of the Mass Audubon family for more than 25 years, both as a teacher and an administrator. She has an M.S. degree in Environmental Studies from Antioch University New England.

During the camp day, Patti often can be found playing games with the campers, telling stories, or canoeing with the Great Blue Herons—identifiable by her ever-present bear hat.

Kim Hoff is starting with Mass Audubon in 2018 as a Teacher Naturalist and Assistant Camp Director. Before coming to Arcadia, she worked for several years with our state parks. Like Patti, Kim has an M.S. degree in Environmental Studies from Antioch University New England.

At camp, Kim can be found conversing with campers, singing songs about nature, and emailing campers’ families to keep them informed and up-to-date about Arcadia Nature Day Camp.

Our Camp Staff

Counselors are chosen for their enthusiasm, experience, nature knowledge, sense of both fun and safety, and ability to work with children in an outdoor setting. They are college graduates/professionals or undergraduate students in an environmental or educational field. All staff undergo background checks and are certified in CPR and First Aid.
