Jiné is a self-described Chingachgook kid, who’s love of the outdoors all started with her experience as a camper in the Adventure Camp program here at Chingachgook. From that trip on, Jiné spent every summer on the lake, going from CIT to counselor and eventually onto the waterfront team for 4 summers, camp photographer for 1 summer, and an outdoor educator for 5 seasons. Jiné is beyond happy to be at camp full time and loves working with staff and campers to carry on the traditions that make Chingachgook the best place to spend a summer!

Jiné is originally from Albany, NY, a graduate of Ithaca College and spent two years living in Boston and working for the American Camp Association, New England.  Jiné enjoys sailing, hiking, photographing the beautiful Adirondacks, jumping off the rope swing, practicing half-court shots, and spending as much time on the lake as possible!

Mike started coming to Camp as a Junior Boy camper in 2004 and immediately fell in love with the Adirondacks and Camp Chingachgook. He has grown up as a part of the Chingachgook family, spending many summers as a camper and staff member, always striving to make each summer better than the last! He is proud to be a part of a welcoming community that provides so many character-building opportunities for our campers through our traditions and innovative programs.

Mike is originally from Ballston Spa, NY. While studying at the University of Vermont, and the National Outdoor Leadership School, he served the Y movement as an assistant site director with the Greater Burlington YMCA and has served various roles with BBL Hospitality throughout the Capital District. After traveling the country backpacking, sailing, rock climbing, kayaking, and taking plenty of Instagram photos, Mike decided that Lake George was the most beautiful place out there! Mike can’t wait to welcome the next generation of campers to Chingachgook.

Carol began working at Camp Chingachgook in 2004 and has been the heartbeat of our office ever since.  Almost every family that attends Chingachgook has spoken to Carol prior to their arrival or on the opening day of summer camp.

Carol loves to hike, kayak and boat on Lake George during the summer months, and ski and snowshoe in the winter.  When you give Chingachgook a call, be sure to say ‘hi’ to Carol!
