About Camp Wildcat

Meet the Director

A Williston graduate from the class of 2000, Kevin returns to the Williston community after his retirement from the U.S. Army, where he served as both an Intelligence Officer and an Inspector General. Though the mission has changed, his passion for teaching and training young people has not. Kevin’s belief in personal development through experiential learning and exploration is a fundamental element underpinning Camp Wildcat. As a father of three, Kevin has returned to Easthampton and says that he can think of no better place to raise his family and show his children what it means to be united in family, community, and passion. He earned his bachelor’s degree in economics from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, where he also met his wife.

Health & Safety

The health and safety of campers is a top priority of our program. All our counselors and staff are trained in first aid, CPR, and AED usage, and additionally we have an onsite Health and Wellness Center, whose staff includes registered nurses with years of experience in pediatric, emergency, student, and community health care, including Director of Health and Wellness Services Amber Mish. The camp doctor and health care consultant, Peter Elsea, M.D. is board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and is on the staff of Cooley Dickinson Hospital in nearby Northampton. We also have a Campus Safety staff on campus, who provide 24-hour security coverage, clear safety responses and procedures, and oversee practice safety drills.
