Meet The Team

Co-Directors
Sid

Sid

Hey hey hey! My name is Sid and I am so pumped to be apart of the team working to make CKGW 2018 the BEST CAMP YET! In my free time I like sing loudly (and off-tune) to every single Disney song ever, I get excited throughout the day as thoughts of camp pop into my head, and I watch funny videos on youtube until my sides hurt from laughing with my co-director, Penny! I cannot wait to work with her and all of our other e-board members to bring 140 amazing campers to CKGW this year for one of the most memorable years of camp yet!! I am already so excited for next summer; during all things camp this year you'll most likely find me yelling out one of my favorite phrases, "WHAT'S BETTER THAN THIS??" because, really, what's better than camp?

Penny

Penny

HELLOOOOO!!! My name is Penny and I am SO excited to be one of the directors for CKGW this year!! Last year I was lucky enough to be a family outreach coordinator, and this year I get to work even harder to make camp the best it's ever been! When I'm not spending time with my awesome co-director Sid or the rest of our amazing Eboard you can find me practicing my act for the talent show (underwater basket-weaving of course) or singing my favorite camp song (Hi my name is Joe...)! I'm already counting down the days until camp next summer, and I can't wait to see you all there! Stay silly!

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~!

I'm excited to get more involved with Camp Kesem, and as an Operations co-coordinator I'll get to help plan the activities that we do during the weeks of camp! Messy Games and the Talent Show were definitely my favorite memories from last year, but bonding with all the kids was the best part.

Hey y'all my name is Jaba, as in the Hutt! I'm so excited to be a part of the volunteer team this year with my good friend NASA! I'm a huge drama-geek, love singing, dancing and doing the worm! My favorite camp activity is taking capture the flag a bit too seriously, and sweating through my shirt. I'm so excited to see my Kesem fam again, and make it the best camp yet!

NASA

NASA

HI I'm NASA and I'm one of the Volunteer Coordinators for CKGW this year! I'm super excited to find new counselors to bring into our CKGW family this year. I can't wait for everyone to experience all the fun, love, and snacks that we share. PLUS me and my co, Jabba the Hutt, get to plan all of the bonding activities that will go down before camp gets here, which means there will be lots of good times and snacks ahead (I'm pretty into snacks). I can't wait to get back to camp to see all the wonderful kids with the BEST crew of counselors the world has ever seen. I also hope to have to put my elbow on the cafeteria floor a lot less this time around. BIG LOVE, here's to another great year of camp!!!!!!!!

Marketing & PR
Cap'

Cap'

Hello Kesemers!!! My name is Cap' this is my third year with our amazing Kesem family, and I'm so excited to work on Marketing and PR with my boi Jefe. Some of my favorite activities include buying copious amounts of ice cream, eating copious amounts of ice cream and scrolling through dank memes. For me, the best part of Camp is Color Wars, Capture the Flag, and impromptu dance parties in the Pink Cabin!! Counting down the days to camp songs and s'mores!

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!

Alumni
Taquito

Taquito

Hola! My name is Taquito and I am the first ever CKGW Alumni chair!!! I’m counting on my experiences as a prior volunteer co-coordinator to help me build connections between our current counselors, CKGW Alumni, and DC alumni! I’m looking forward planning some happy hours and fun events that our alumni can participate in. I’m always looking for ways to expand the Camp Kesem community and I feel like this role will be perfectly suited for a senior who will soon be an alumni. Camp is what I look forward to every single year and I can’t wait to see y’all there!
