Year Round Leadership

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 the community at Beaver Summer Camp! It is so special to see the campers and staff grow from year to year. It is particularly special when campers become staff members.

Interesting fact:  I couldn’t stay away from Beaver! After a year and a half away, I am so excited to be back.
