Meet Our Team

Our Directors and Leadership Team combine hundreds of years of camp experience with new, exciting, and innovative ways to have fun in a safe, down-to-earth, and family-friendly atmosphere.  They oversee a team of staff members who have been carefully selected and personally interviewed to ensure that they possess the skills, maturity and devotion needed to serve as a positive role model.

"The Directors, bring warmth and enthusiasm into camp, making each person feel at ease when away from home. I was so lucky my parents sent me to Camp Louemma, as it was and continues to be a very important part of my life."
