Meet the 2017 Camp Staff

Wendy Miller - Camp Director, Camp Counselor 

Wendy is the Education Program Manager at Audubon Sharon and has been the Summer Camp Director for the past ten years. She holds a B.S. in Wildlife & Fisheries Science from Penn State University and has been at Audubon Sharon since 1997. Although Wendy does a lot of the behind-the-scenes camp preparation, she enjoys being outdoors with the campers, getting to know the kids and the parents, and sharing her love of nature. She has also been known to teach a few camp sessions now and then, and this year she will once again be teaching the Early Childhood Discovery session for 3 and 4 year olds.

Almas Ali - Camp Counselor

Almas is a Connecticut native out of Stamford, and has a BS in Environmental Science with Minors in Arabic and History. She has been a staff member at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center in June 2012, working in visitor services, exhibits and educating the public about various environmental subjects.  She is well known there for her polite, bubbly personality and her enthusiasm for giving child-focused, interactive impromtu tours around the museum.  Almas has also worked as a Camp Counselor for the Jewish Community Center in Stamford.  She considers herself "an art person," and you may even catch her singing a little tune from time to time!  Almas will be joining us in mid-February through the end of August.

 

Abigail (Abby) Wilson- Summer Camp Assistant

Abby is a local from the Northwest corner who is currently working on a BS of Environmental Science/Natural Resources. She was a Wildlife Rehabilitation volunteer here last summer and is back again to assist our Summer Camp Counselors AND feed those hungry little mouths in the rehab clinic!  We look forward to having Abby join our Summer Camp Staff this year!

Mackenzie Joray- Summer Camp Assistant

Mackezie joins us this summer from Goshen, CT, where she attends Wamogo High School.  She is very active in the FFA and has participated in Timber Team, Envirothon, Novice Parliamentary Procedure CDE and more.  She is in the Hare Raisers Rabbit 4-H Club and Litchfield County 4-H Sheperds, and has won Outstanding 4-H'er Award for the past four years.  She also works at Snuggle Bunnies Childcare Center as an Assistant Teacher and has worked with children ages 3 months through 12 years.  Mackenzie loves being outdoors and learning about nature and the environment, and loves working with children, so we expect she will fit right in at Summer Camp this summer!
