Danielle has been lucky enough to spend practically her whole life at the Samuel Field Y. Starting as a Junior Camper in 1999, Danielle moved up through Tween camp and Teen camp, becoming a counselor in 2006. She moved through the ranks as a counselor and unit head over the past 8 summers, and this is her fourth year on the Day Camp Director team. Throughout the school year she remained active within the Y, participating in Teen Council and was a counselor in Afterschool before assuming her full time position in 2012 as the Coordinator of the Youth Department. She has recently graduated from Queens College with her Bachelor’s in Mathematics. Some of her favorite childhood memories include travelling to new places on the teen camp long trips and making best friends. During the school year she spends her time counting down the days until camp starts again.
Danielle also serves as an Accreditation Visitor for the American Camp Association.
