Meet The Team

Co-Directors
Clementime

Clementime

Yo yo yiggidy yo! Clementine here! I think it's safe to say that when it comes to the greatest places on this Earth, Camp Kesem GW pretty much takes the cake! My favorite past times include twisting and shouting through all the cabins in the morning during wake up, getting roasted by my own campers at the talent show, and facing off against my co-Director, Sid, in the occasional lip sync battle! For all you campers out there, know that we and our stellar Executive Board Team will stop at nothing to make sure CKGW 2017 is the messiest, most glitter-filled, and all around crazy year of Camp Kesem GW yet! Peace. Love. Kesem.

Sid

Sid

Hey hey hey! My name is Sid and I am so excited to be Co-director this year! I am a Junior double majoring in international old stuff (aka History and International Affairs). I like to spend my free time lip syncing my favorite songs (aka Single Ladies!!) and throwing water balloons at Clementine! I am pumped to get to spend the rest of the year talking about, raising money, and living all things camp! A fun fact about me is that I chose the camp name, Sid, because I had a couple of friends in high school that thought I really looked like Sid the Sloth from Ice Age, what do you think?

Treasurer
Provolone

Provolone

Heyyy! My name is Provolone, although some call me Mr. Cheese, and I cannot wait to go back to camp this year! This past year was my first year at camp and it completely changed my life. From the Color Wars, to the Messy Games, to meals, to pool time, Camp was the greatest thing I have ever gotten involved with. As treasurer of this marvelous chapter, I am trying my best to ensure every grand idea, stupendous adventure and magical moment will be ready to go financially! I am so excited for camp this upcoming year, the camp songs are still fresh in my memory! Can you do the Jig-a-Low? We will find out soon! See you guys there!

Operations
Tiger

Tiger

Hi!! My name is Tiger and I am one of the Operations Chairs for CKGW for a second year! I am so excited to work with my co-chair Cookie Dough to come up with all the fun ways to include ice cream in everything we do! Cookie Dough and I, along with help from our Directors will be dreaming up all of the activities that will go on during the weeks of camp this year! I like camp because they let me control a lot of stuff and I am a total control freak! The kids are pretty cool too. I am so excited to make camp the best it has ever been! I am determined to make the kids think I am a happy, young guy, instead of a grumpy old man like last year! Can’t wait to see y’all there!

Cookie Dough

Cookie Dough

Hey, hey, hey, Cookie Dough here, or CD for short! This is my second year of camp and my first year working as Operations Coordinator! I'm so psyched to spend this entire year planning out the details of the GREATEST weeks of summer with my awesome co-chair, Tiger! We're excited to make sure that CKGW 2017 is the most s'more-filled, glitter-loaded, and camp-song-crammed week in existence. Last year at camp I received the BEST shaving-cream mohawk at camp (shoutout to purple girls!), and I can't wait to experience the wonders of an Admin Sundae this summer! I'm counting down the days until we get to swimmie, swimmie, swimmie, swim all afternoon long and pretend that every day is a ~sixties party~!

Outreach
Kit Kat

Kit Kat

I said a BOOM CHICKA BOOM! Hello, my name is Kit Kat and I'm the Outreach Coordinator this year with my super awesome cochair Penny! This will be my third year with Camp Kesem GW because I love working with our Camp Kesem families and kids so so much! I love eboard because we're all super crazy and fun, but we're also passionate and driven about our campers and making sure their next summer at Camp Kesem GW is THE BEST! I also love being a counselor because we all, campers and counselors included, get to act like a kids for a week! A fun fact you can ask about when you meet me is that I can lucid dream, meaning I can control my dreams when I sleep!

Penny

Penny

Hi everyone! My name is Penny and I am so so sooo excited for Camp this summer! I am counting down the days until I get to sing Hey Burrito again (especially the fire sauce part.) This year is going to be amazing because I get to work with the incredible Kit Kat! Most of my time at GW is spent talking about Camp, thinking about Camp, or having Camp songs stuck in my head! From now until Camp I'm going to work really hard on my capture the flag skills, and also on making Camp the best it's ever been! Always remember to get loose and funky!

Hot Pocket

Hot Pocket

I said HEEEEYYYYYYY BURRITTTOOO. My name is Hot Pocket, the original microwavable snack. I am your Year-Round Support Coordinator which means I'm scheming 24/7 on how to bring Kesem coming at you not just at camp but forever (or throughout the year). I cannot wait to make camp more accessible and more fun than ever this upcoming year. CAMP IS NO LONGER JUST FOR THE SUMMER. In the meantime I'll be microwaving up some delicious pizza and pepperoni hot pockets while singing some of my favorite camp songs like "Hey My name is Joe" and "Hey What". HP OUT

I'm majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Business Administration. Joining Camp Kesem has been the best and most rewarding decision I have made in college thus far, and I can't wait for CKGW'17! Taquito and I are so pumped to meet all of the new counselors and show them how to get loose and get funky...camp style!

Taquito

Taquito

Hi everyone! My name is Taquito! This past year was my first year at camp and it was everything I could've ever imagined and more! In my free time I love to play baseball, basketball, and Fifa 17... because I never was much of a soccer player. I also love casually breaking out into camp songs with my roommate Provolone and throwing up my llamas in rowdy classrooms. I am BEYOND excited to work with my fellow CKGW Executive Team to make this next year of camp the best one yet! I already know working with my Co-Coordinator Coco is gonna be #LIT. Coquito coming at you live... if you can handle it of course. I can't wait to see you all at CKGW Summer 2017!

Hey everyone! My name is Nick Meisel, but when I'm with my Camp Kesem family I got by TURTLE! I am a senior majoring in political science and I can't wait to get started on making another amazing summer of camp! This will be my third summer at Camp Kesem and my second year of being on EBoard. Camp Kesem is such a rewarding experience for me because it really brings out the best in all of our campers as well as our counselors. Seeing over 150 kids and counselors come together is such a beautiful thing to be a part of. I can't wait to get back to camp this summer!!

Special K

HI, MY NAME IS JOE! Just kidding, it's Special K and I am so pumped to be one of your PR chairs this year! I had an awesome time at camp last year and can't wait to help make next year's camp even better. Camp Kesem was definitely a highlight of my summer and being able to be around so many kids that I look up to was very inspiring. See y'all next summer at camp and don't forget to PUSH THAT BUTTON JOE!
