Meet our Camp Directors
Shaquan Brown, White Pines Day Camp, Sports and Specialty Camps,
Counselor In Training program
I love working as a Camp Director because I have the unique opportunity to create a safe, fun, nurturing environment for campers of all ages. I have the privilege of seeing children have fun, learn new things and make new friends. I also get to experience many camper accomplishments; first-time swimmers, first baskets made, first arts & crafts projects, first water balloon toss, first Gaga championship, and plenty more! These experiences keep me wanting to come back every year. At White Pines Day Camp, we believe every summer should be the Best Summer Ever!
Alison Dorfman, Summer Playschool Preschool Camp
The fondest memories of my childhood are from camp! I started as a camper when I was 3 years old and the friendships I made and the lessons I learned along the way have stayed with me to this day. Being the Director of the Y's Summer Playschool Preschool Camp program provides me with the opportunity to give our preschool children the start of their own summer memories, which they will carry with them throughout the rest of their lives. I have been working for the Wayne YMCA for 3 1/2 years, both as the Early Childhood Learning Center Director as well as the Summer Playschool Director. Prior to joining the Wayne Y team, I worked in various other child care centers where I transformed the schools during the summer months to give the children a camp experience they wouldn't forget. I look forward to seeing you and your children this summer!
Meryl Budnick, Performing Arts Specialty Camps
I have always been a camper at heart! I grew up attending day camp and sleepaway camp and even returned to camp as an adult to spend my summers planning great experiences for kids on stage! I love to be around theater and with my creative staff, I have planned a fun summer 2017! Join us in the Rosen PAC for the following summer programs: Pop Performance, Let's Put on a Show, and Theater Arts with Pushcart Players!
The Wayne YMCA offers a wide variety of Summer Day Camps that are perfect for all children from preschool through teens. Our summer camps provide activities that are educational, exciting and fun, but most importantly, it is an experience that builds self-esteem, lasting friendships and treasured memories. The Y values of caring, respect, honesty and responsibility are emphasized throughout our camp programs.
Before and After Camp care is available at all camps to accommodate the needs of working parents.
