SUMMER CAMP STAFF

Summer camp is just around the corner and our staff is already planning and perparing for your Best. Summer. Ever. Get to know them before you arrive on your first day:

Ramius Pruiss, Director of Youth Development: Camp and Sports
Overseeing all camp programs

ramiusRI'm a youth development professional focused on the betterment of today's youth. I've worked in the summer camp industry for the last ten years. My professional career began at my local YMCA. After six years with the YMCA, I signed a contract with Disney Cruise Lines and worked in their youth programs onboard the fleets flagship, the Fantasy. After finishing my contract with Disney, I began working with Indian Head Camp in their program department, focusing on logistics, scheduling and event planning. I received my BA in Political Science from SUNY New Paltz and my MS in Recreation and Leisure Management from SUNY Cortland. If there is one thing I've learned from all my experience it is that that life is full of adventures. I'm beyond excited to experience this new one at the Lower Bucks County YMCA.


Zach Jones, Site Coordinator
Holland Summer Camp

zach jones R"My name is Zach Jones and I will be graduating from Penn State with a degree in public relations this May. I started working with the YMCA in 2016 as a lifeguard and swim instructor. This past summer I ran a YMCA swim camp and was an assistant swim coach for the Tri-Hampton Swim Team this past fall. I have also done internships with two separate YMCA's in marketing and public relations. For 2018 camp, I want to create a fun and welcoming environment for everyone at the Holland site. Making new friends, finding new hobbies and encouraging self confidence will be my top priorities for all of our campers. I am looking forward to starting every day with an optimistic mind set and making Holland camp a safe place for kids to be themselves and follow their dreams."

I started my Y career in child care and currently a site supervisor for one of our school-aged programs. I’m excited to welcome new and returning campers to our Cabrini location this summer while creating a fun and safe environment.
 
 
 
 

Rob Perry, CIT Program Coordinator
Fairless Hills/Cabrini-based Summer Camp

rob perryR“My name is Rob Perry and this is my 3rd summer working at the YMCA Summer Camp. I am currently a Junior at West Chester University studying Spanish. I am super excited to be apart of the CIT program this summer. Having worked at the camp for the past 2 summers as a counselor has given me  many memories and so much experience that has helped me grow throughout the years. I am excited to have a crucial part in the CIT camp and hope these future counselors gain the skills and love for camp that I have these past few years!”
