THE LEADERSHIP TEAM

Our Leadership Team provides sets the tone for our staff approach and our community feeling each summer.  You've got to trust the people leading the community in which your daughter/son will spend the summer and you can't do better than these three.  Give us a call, get to know us, find out about our approach and make sure it is in line with the way you raise your children and your values.

Garrett Colgan-Snyder, Director

Pictured here with son August.  Eleven years as Director Garrett continues to be involved in activities and trips on a daily basis.  "I love the balance of the physical and intellectual challenge that Hawkeye provides.  I am committed to the training, supervision and ongoing growth of our staff, and, most days there is no place I'd rather be than out around camp with our camps. 

Jessica Colgan-Snyder, Asst. Director

Eleven years at Hawkeye and now in her sixth year as Assistant Director Jess is a star wherever she goes.  "My favorite part of camp is developing relationships with our camper families.  Sharing in parents' goals for their kids, watching them grow in our program, makes me so happy!"  Jess also teaches swim lessons, supervises bunk staff, leads trips, and is at the heart of the Huron tribe.

DeAnn Kelsey, Nurse

In her tenth year as the Hawkeye nurse DeAnn is also the head of our Health Management Team.  She has had her own kids with her at camp over the last decade and her youngest son is now the longest tenured boy in Bunk 4.  DeAnn loves being involved around camp too; leading Arts activities, sneaky playing the piano, and co-leading hikes each week.

THE HAWKEYE STAFF GROUP

A great camper to staff ratio (2:1) is just the beginning of the story.  With twenty-five staff each summer the caring group of young men and women that mentor our campers is outstanding.

THEY GOT SKILLS!
