Our counselors and activity staff are the heart and soul of Nobles Day Camp. They bring enthusiasm and experience. They are teachers, athletes, musicians, artists, dancers, mentors, students and parents. The connections they form with campers and with each other create the close-knit community that keeps so many coming back year after year.

I have been working here since 2005. I also work for Nobles during the school year. My favorite activities at camp are Archery and Fun Fridays!
I started working at Nobles in 2016! During the school year, I am an Early Childhood Adjunct Professor at Pine Manor College in Brookline, MA. My son is also enjoying his first year at Nobles in big camp! We are both having a great time!
I am so excited to be back for another summer in the Owls Nest Arts and Crafts room! I began working at Nobles in the summer of 2009, and my two sons and I have enjoyed returning to camp each summer since then. During the upcoming school year, I will be teaching third grade in Needham. This summer I am most looking forward to the excitement and enthusiasm of our Owls Nest campers!
I started working at NDC in 2012. I was the Head Counselor of the Blue Nest for 2 years, then in 2014, I made the switch to the activities staff. I am the Activity Head for Books and Cooks and Discovery. Discovery is where our young campers can go to play and discover. Discovery is a great way for the campers to interact with one another as well as their counselors. I am looking forward to another great summer with all the little OWL’S. In Books and Cooks, the campers learn to create and make many different recipes. It is great to see their creativity and so much fun to assist them in learning something new. Books and Cooks is a camper favorite- eating their creation is the best part.
I have been working at Noble’s Day Camp for a few summers with Owl’s Field Sports. During the year I teach PE and Health to middle school aged students. I look forward to playing games and having a blast with all the little owl’s in the Owl’s Nest camp this year.
I have been working at Nobles Day Camp since 2010. During the year I am a Pre-K teacher. I have a BS in Physical Education with a minor in dance. I have been teaching children gymnastics and dance since the age of 16. My favorite thing about camp is gymnastics of course and learning new moves from the campers and staff.
I have been working in the Owl’s Nest at Nobles Day Camp since 2011. During the school year, I am a primary Montessori school teacher (ages 3-6). Nurturing children’s love for music is the reason why I come to camp every day!
Janine started working at Owl Pool in 2005 after teaching swimming for a few decades in many other settings to many age and ability levels. She is a licensed Early Childhood, Special Educator. Janine and her 3 sons look forward to swimming at NDC every summer!
This is my first summer at Nobles and I’m looking forward to it. I have worked at the YMCA, Lifetime Fitness, and the University of Delaware as both a lifeguard and swim instructor. I am a freshman at the University of Delaware as a Health Behavioral Science major with a Biology minor. I swim competitively for the University of Delaware, so I’m excited to share my passion for swimming!
This is my first year working at Nobles and I could not be more excited for this summer! During the year, I attend Villanova University where I will be a Sophomore next fall. My favorite thing about camp is being outside and trying new things!
