Camp Director—Meghan Haslam
Meghan began her career as a camp counselor in the Rocky Mountains outside Buena Vista, Colorado. After graduating with a B.A. in Creative Writing from Colorado College, she spent three years in the Peace Corps in Nicaragua, where she went on to found and direct the 4 Walls Project, a housing improvement organization. While continuing to live and work in Central America, she managed a range of community, educational and outdoor programs.
Meghan returned to the US in 2014 to direct the 100 Elk Outdoor Center in Buena Vista, CO, and then oversaw outdoor education and character development programs for young people and adults at North Carolina Outward Bound School as the Program Director of their Table Rock Base Camp in Jonas Ridge, NC.
Her passion for connecting with diverse communities through nature led her to Drumlin Farm, and she loves being here! After the camp day, Meghan enjoys hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking around New England with her partner.
Assistant Camp Director—Chloe Briskin
Chloe started their career in the camp industry with seven consecutive summers as a camp counselor from high school through college. They began by working at a theater camp, and ended up as a camp counselor right here at Drumlin Farm. Working at Drumlin introduced them to the world of outdoor and environmental education, and their passion for the field only grew from there.
After graduating with a B.A. in Biology from Wesleyan University, Chloe spent two years in California working as a naturalist for residential outdoor education programs, where they led educational hikes and classes in the Sierra Nevada Mountains for school groups from the surrounding regions.
Chloe came back to Massachusetts in 2020, thrilled at the opportunity to return to the amazing community that Drumlin Farm has to offer. They are so excited to be here and to share their passion for nature and outdoor exploration with staff, campers, and families. Outside of camp, Chloe loves hiking, looking for wildlife, baking, and playing Dungeons and Dragons with their friends!
Our Camp Educators
Our staff is passionate about sharing the joy and excitement of the outdoors with children. Sessions are staffed by lead educators who are mostly college graduates with proven camp leadership experience, and by assistant educators who are at least 17 years old and have experience supervising children. All undergo a rigorous interview process that includes reference and background checks. They also receive training in health and safety, child development, natural history, environmental education best practices, and COVID-19 safety protocols.
All staff are CPR and first-aid certified.
