susan-leip-02Susan Leip, Director

Education: M.Ed., BA Boston College

Summers at Beaver: 27

What I love best about Beaver: Camp is such a great experience for children and I love being a part of Beaver Summer Camp. The staff team that we form each summer is always such a caring and dedicated group of educators. I find it rewarding to work with people who love children and enjoy making a magical experience for our campers.

Interesting fact: I taught in Laie, Hawaii for one year and classroom faced the ocean. I still write to my co-teacher 3 times a year. She is retired, but she is a great pen pal.

What I love best about Beaver: I love the energy at camp. Campers and staff return every season to celebrate summer and, together, we center joy and well-being at camp!

Interesting fact: I have 2 children and one is going to be a first-time camper this summer! Two great commuting buddies!

What I love best about Beaver:  I love getting to be a part of Beaver Summer Camp. I have worked as a counselor, and have experienced the teamwork and dedication among the counselor community. Since joining the Leadership Team, I love to chat with campers who come into the Camp Office about their favorite parts of their day and I really enjoy meeting the wonderful family and friends of our campers!

Interesting fact:  I lived in Australia for a year before going to college!
