Dear Drakes Island Families and Friends,
Welcome back to Drakes! I am very excited to be working for the Drakes Island Improvement Association this summer as Co-Executive Director, along with my brother Nick, as well as the Tennis Director. I’ve been with the DIIA since I was 14 years old, starting as an Hourly under Emma Sexton, a Floater under Abby McQuillan and Carly McCarthy, and Assistant to the Executive Director under Nick Wuerthner.
I am excited to have the opportunity to be working as the Co-Executive Director and Tennis Director and am excited for all the summer activities that await. Working as my Assistant will be Connor Seeley, a fellow friend and coworker, with experience already with both the Little Kids Camp as well as the Big Kids Camp. Greg McAvoy will be joining us outside as the BKC Floater.
Last year, “Buddy Day” worked out great and we plan to do this again this summer! The LKC loved ‘hanging” with the BKC, even if only for a short time. I am working on the beloved Mega Day already and hope to have a date for this soon. I look forward to scheduling Goodrak and to our tennis matches throughout the summer. I am confident that we will come out on top this year!!
I have loved every summer that I have spent at the DI camps, whether as a camper or a counselor. I have so many great memories growing up on DI due to all of my camp experiences and the friends that I have made. I am excited for my team to be role models to all of our campers as our predecessors were to us! I want the campers to want to come back every day as I did and then maybe even move on to Counselors themselves in the future.
Happy Summer Everyone!
2018 Co-Executive Director & Tennis Director
