Camp Director—Jacqui Shuster

Jacqui "Nighthawk" Shuster became Camp Director in 2020, after four years as a Camp Counselor and Teacher Naturalist at South Shore Sanctuaries. Jacqui is also our Education Coordinator, developing and leading programs for schools, groups, and families within the community. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology with a focus in Ecology and Chemistry. Her favorite part of camp is sharing unexpected nature moments with campers!

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 (including COVID-19 protocols), child development, and natural history.
