Meet the dynamic new Camp PALS Georgetown Director Team. This team is comprised of PALS veteran Alex Meltzer, the warm-hearted Andrea Greenfield, and rising star Scott Gerson. They represent the synthesis of old and young, combining wisdom and know-how with a vibrant spirit. Georgetown has their camp in the heart of the nation’s capital and intend to take full advantage of the surrounding opportunities and Georgetown community. This program will specifically focus on the development of campers into confident, independent young men and women while they enjoy the best week of their lives. The countdown to Camp PALS Georgetown 2014 has officially begun!

Alex:

“What’s up, PALS people? I’m Alex Meltzer, and this will be my 11th year at Camp PALS! In the past I’ve held many different positions, ranging from counselor to head counselor to director, the last of which I am very excited to be doing again this summer at Camp PALS Georgetown. I currently live in Baltimore, Maryland, where I am working on my PhD in biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. I look forward to working with two great freshman directors this year and meeting some new campers and counselors too!”

Andrea:

“Bonjour to you all! My name is Andrea Greenfield, and I’m anxiously awaiting the start of my 4th summer at Camp PALS. I have worked as a counselor and CPS in the past, but this will be my first experience as a director! I recently began a job at the Morris County Mental Health Association, working in the Supportive Housing Department. I live with my family in New Jersey (Go Devils!), and I look forward to checking out DC during camp this summer.”

Scott:

“Aloha! My name is Scott Gerson, and I am the youngest member of the PALS Director Team this year. I spent the last three summers as a counselor, visiting multiple programs this past summer (Philly, Chicago, and G-town). This will be my 4th summer with PALS, but my first as a director, and I can’t think of two people I’d rather have by my side for Camp PALS Georgetown 2014. I am currently a senior at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Maryland, where I play baseball and coach Unified Bocce. Hurry up, summer!”

Camp PALS Georgetown occurs in Washington, D.C. June 29 - July 5, 2014 for 40 campers ages 16-25.
