The Summer of a Lifetime

Each summer 60 or so 20-30 year olds gather outside New York City to live in community, have a great time, and help teenagers accept themselves for who they are. We work long tough hours and change lives everyday. We have a full staff for this summer,
but still need a camp nurse.

Gabrielle spent four summers at OTC as a camper, and is thrilled to be back for her second year as a counselor. She is studying psychology, contemplative studies, and health science at West Chester University. Nutrition and healthy eating feed both her body and her passion.

Lisa has been at OTC for 9 great years. Before coming to camp, she had never been to an overnight camp or been in the woods for longer than a few days. She loves dance parties and is ready to bring the support, honesty, and love needed to allow teens to be their best and unique selves.

Steve and Debbie have been leading and growing camps for a combined 40 years. Debbie is our Office Manager, and believes that kindness, generosity, and gratefulness are what counts. She is a missionary for the message of teen camp and has seen the results that two weeks of living together in a community brings to our teens. Steve brings a wonderful, loving presence to everything he does at camp. This includes assisting his wife in the office and helping campers and counselors with whatever they might need to have a wonderful experience at camp.
