We are excited to introduce Nathan Fanton as your incoming Camp Director!
Nathan is a proud western New Yorker currently living in Rochester, NY. His first summer working in camping was in 2006. Little did Nathan know at that time his decision to be a counselor at his local day camp was the beginning of his career! Since then he has served in various positions in both day and resident camping, most recently as the Site Director of a YMCA resident camp, and before that as the Central New York 4-H Camp Director. Nathan is active in the camp community as an associate standards visitor with the Upstate New York chapter of the American Camp Association, and is currently serving on the program committee of the Northeast YMCA Camp Conference. When Nathan is not preparing for camp you can find him experimenting in the kitchen or attempting to learn how to play the fiddle!
