Director Series: Camp PALS Princeton


Introducing, our Princeton Directors- Steven, Whitney, and David. 

Steven: Hi everyone! I’m Steven, a 2nd year director with Camp PALS Princeton. I currently live in Philadelphia, but I’m constantly traveling for my work as a consultant. I’m a 2013 Princeton grad and a lifelong PALS enthusiast, so I cannot wait until this summer for, once again, the perfect combination of both. I’m most looking forward to a week completely dedicated to fun, new friendships and growth…and, of course, a bit of karaoke. Whitney, David and I are pumped to meet and reconnect with you all. See you soon!

Whitney: Hey PALS peeps! My name is Whitney Flora and this will be my 7th summer with PALS. This will be my 3rd summer as a director at Camp PALS Princeton and I cannot put into words how excited I am. PALS has given me so much in the last 7 years. The people I have met here have taught me that I can do anything I put my mind to, that singing karaoke will fix any problem, and to approach every situation with compassion and kindness. My life has been shaped by the influence of this incredible organization and the inspiring people I’ve met along the way. I can’t wait to see what Princeton holds for us this summer. I can already tell it’s going to be the best year yet!

David: “Hey everybody! I’m David Sabia and this summer will mark six years since my brother Steve, a 8th-year camper, introduced me into the PALS family! I’m ecstatic that I have the opportunity to spend my second year as a director with my amazing co-directors at PALS Princeton. I currently live in Olney, Maryland, where I work as a 4th grade teacher in the Montgomery County Public School system. The thing I’m most excited about this summer is continuing to step outside my comfort zone…whether that is meeting a new friend, judging the most hotly contested edition of Top Chef yet, or adding that one extra topping at Fruity Yogurt. Can’t wait to meet all the counselors and campers for what will surely be one of the best weeks of the year!”
