Putting camp together takes a lot of hard work, but our 13-member Executive Board works tirelessly all year round to make it possible!
From right to left:
Kimya Forouzan, a.k.a. Kim Possible
What’s cookin’ good lookin’? Kim Possible here, ready to make camp THE BEST EVER. This is my second year with Camp Kesem, and I am so excited to be the Executive Co-Chair! I’m a sophomore at George Washington University majoring in International Affairs with a concentration in Middle Eastern Studies and minoring in Spanish. When I’m not spending my time thinking of new camp games and ideas to make messy games even messier, I’m busy hitting the books, doing yoga, adventuring in DC with my friends, and finding a way to make s’mores part of the food pyramid. All silliness aside, I’m so proud to be a part of the Camp Kesem family, and I’m inspired by our campers, counselors, families, and volunteers everyday. If you ever have any questions or concerns about camp, I’m at your service- call me, beep me if you wanna reach me.
Sydnee Fielkow, a.k.a. Tinkerbell
Hey everyone, I’m Tinkerbell! This is my second year with Camp Kesem GW and I could not be more excited to be one of CKGW’s Executive Co-Chairs this year! I am a sophomore from Houston, Texas and have two younger siblings. Last year I had a chance to serve as one of the fundraising co-chairs and had a blast working on our fundraiser called Share the Magic. When I’m not doing something Camp Kesem related, you can probably find me studying psychology and criminal justice, listening to some Brad Paisley or Luke Bryan, or saving the world.
Nicco Lupo, a.k.a. Luigi
Hi, I’m Nicco Lupo! This is my first year with Camp Kesem and I am currently a member of the Fundraising team at CKGW! My main job is to work with my chairs to raise as much money as possible so Camp Kesem can continue to grow like it has in the past! I am currently a student in GW’s Colombian College of Arts and Sciences with an undecided major. My hobbies include running, playing baseball, and watching Sons of Anarchy. I am extremely excited for camp this summer, and cannot wait for it to be here!
Brittany Harvey, a.k.a. Nom Nom
Hey! My name’s Nom Nom and my first words were “Gimme that mac n’ cheese, uh huh.” I’m a sophomore at GW and I hail from a small town in the best commonwealth, Massachusetts. I’m wicked excited to be part of Camp Kesem as a fundraising co-chair this year! When I’m not fundraising for camp you can catch me farming, inventing new dance moves, or ridin’ that pony around the monuments. I have an appetite for everything awesome and can’t wait to help make CKGW 2013 the best ever!
Joy Finneran, a.k.a. Cricket
Hi everyone! My name is Joy, but at camp I go by Cricket. I’m a sophomore, and a DC transplant from Connecticut. I’m so excited to be spending a second year on CKGW’s EBoard hollering for dollars as a fundraising co-chair. I am a self-proclaimed tye-dye enthusiast and a semi-professional s’mores maker. If you visit us at GW, you might be lucky enough to catch me razzle dazzling, hey burrito-ing, or riding my red wagon around campus. I can’t wait for an awesome summer at CKGW 2013!
Shira Solomon, a.k.a. Minnie
HEY GUYS! My name’s Shira, but I LOVE my camp name, Minnie. This is my second year on admin and programming and my favorite thing about camp is waking up bright and early. Sometimes I can be shy, but I’m not quiet at camp! I love hanging out with my sorority sisters, doing inventory of camp supplies, and having bake sales in elevators. I’m so proud that I brought Razzle Dazzle to camp this year. See you all soon!
Nathan Evans, a.k.a. Bolt
What’s up everybody, I’m Nathan, but people around here call me Bolt. I hail from Boston, Massachusetts and this is my first year at George Washington University. I love living in big city DC, playing basketball, and doing awesome things around the city with my friends. I am a diehard Boston sports fan, and I am always down to talk (or debate) the Celtics or the Patriots. This is my first year at Camp Kesem, and I can’t wait to get started organizing awesome activities for everyone at camp.
Shailly Gaur, a.k.a. Bumblebee
Hello world, my name is Bumblebee! I am a junior from a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania majoring in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. When not doing all that science-y stuff or transforming to save the world, you can find me reliving camp with all my fellow counselors (camp songs and s’mores all day every day)! I am so excited to be working with Kirby on public relations this year, promoting camp for all to know and love. Looking forward to another great week of camp!
Emilia Totzeva, a.k.a. Kirby
Hey there! I’m Emilia, aka Kirby! I’m a sophomore from the good ol’ Garden State majoring in marketing. When I’m not putting up camp pictures, tweeting, or editing our camp website, I’m probably hanging out at Starbucks, rock climbing, or seeing friends! I’m super excited to be on PR again this year with my favorite Bumblebee and I can’t wait for camp this year (I’ve been singing Razzle Dazzle and Ride That Pony since August)!
Jeremy Barr, a.k.a. Moose
Hey everyone, my name is Jeremy but my camp friends like to call me Moose. I’m from small town Western Massachusetts , and while I love living in DC, there’s nothing better than heading deep into Maryland to spend a week with Camp Kesem. This is my third year with CKGW, and I’m pumped to be recruiting and training counselors this year!
Stephanie Brennan, a.k.a. Boo
Hey, everyone! My name is Boo. I’m a junior from Massachusetts and I am majoring in English and minoring in Communication. This is my third year on the Executive Board for CKGW. I have spent the past two years FUN-draising, but I’m thrilled to be a Student Support co-chair and round up all of our incredible counselors this year! My favorite camp memories include getting smeared with chocolate pudding and singing all day long! When I’m not at camp, I enjoy reading, dancing…and still singing all day long.
Rachel Getzenberg, a.k.a. Nutella
Hiiii I am Nutella!!! While unfortunately I am not a chocolaty hazelnut spread, I do get to work on Camper Care of Camp Kesem. I am a junior majoring in psychology and minoring in biology. I am from Baltimore, MD and have been to camp twice so far. Some of my favorite things about camp are singing songs and getting to know all of the campers. Camp is sweet!!
Ryan Carey-Mahoney, a.k.a. Dunkaroo
G’Day, Mates! My name is Dunkaroo, but you can call me Dunk. Besides being named after the world’s most delicious snack, I am junior at GWU majoring in Journalism, a Bostonian, at heart and in accent, and super music fanatic who is always ready for an impromptu dance party. After my first out-of-this-world week at Camp Kesem this past summer, I wanted to bring something more to camp besides a suitcase full of orange swag and a lengthy list of camp songs. I cannot wait for a great year working as a member of the Camper Care team with Nutella, my sweet and chocolaty Co-Chair, to make the camper experience even better than before. See you all at camp!
