Dottie Myers-Hill, Camp Director

Dottie Myers-Hill, Camp Director — Woohoo, I am super excited for 2024's camp season. This will be my 24th year on staff (with a 20 year break) and I am still learning new things every day. I love being the Camp Director although I also miss being the morning cook and the crafts instructor and buddy board supervisor. I also truly enjoy meeting each new batch of camp staff every summer - and especially exploring the foods and traditions from other countries.

Wendy Tarantino, Office Manager

Wendy Tarantino, Office Manager — Hi! My name is Wendy and this is my 11th summer as your Office Manager at Van Buren Youth Camp. I love all the campers, the singing, the games and fun that we have out here. I also love the other staff and their commitment to your campers happiness! This has been my favorite place since I was 8 and it has barely changed at all. I LOVE IT HERE! My favorite things to do include taking photos, watching my girls play at the beach, attending (or being in!) musicals and travelling.
