We are happy to welcome back camp alumni, Jiné, as the year round Summer Program Director here at Chingachgook! 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. 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 and an outdoor educator for 5 seasons. She was the camp photographer in 2013 and filled in as an adventure trip leader for a week last summer, but is beyond happy to be returning to camp full time!
Jiné is originally from Albany, NY and a graduate of Ithaca College but has spent the last two years living in Boston and working for the American Camp Association, New England. She is looking forward to stepping out of the traditional office setting to work with staff and campers this summer. She is also an avid sailor and cannot wait to take her first jump off the rope swing this season!
