Our Camp Staff

Staff are carefully selected for their maturity and ability to work with children in an outdoor setting. Our counselors are enthusiastic and caring individuals, dedicated to helping campers develop a special relationship with nature.

All undergo background checks, are first aid and CPR certified, and participate in a pre-camp training in safety, child development, and natural history.

Camp Director Amy Quist has been with North River Nature Day Camp since 2008. Amy is also Education Coordinator for Mass Audubon’s South Shore Sanctuaries, developing and leading programs for schools, groups, and families within the community. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism with a focus in Environmental Interpretation, and a master’s degree in Science Education, both from the University of Maine.
