Meet the Landsports Staff



Dani du Plessis – Department Head

I couldn’t be more excited to return to the extraordinary world that is Vega in 2019. From the moment I pulled up to Vega in 2017, I had no idea of the incredible experience I’d have. Words cannot describe the crazy energy and sense of family one gains whilst at Vega. I am proud to say I bleed White and Green, and I cannot wait for some intense games of Gaga, 4th of July and my all time favorite event, Tug of War! Let’s go get that CMGL Bear trophy for another year girls! WHITE AND GREEN 2019!!!



Hi everyone! I’m Avery Shuldman and I couldn’t be more excited to be coming back to Vega for my 9th summer! I’m from Westport, Connecticut but am currently studying TV, Radio, and Film at the Newhouse school at Syracuse University. I love being active and I can’t wait to be back on Echo Lake Road down at landsports. I’m so excited to meet you all and to have an amazing summer!




Hi everyone!! My name is Niki Randall and I am from Long Island, NY. I’m currently a freshman at the University of Miami studying real estate and legal studies on a pre-law track. Since my Tamary summer in 2015, I have been counting down the days till I could return to camp for my 9th summer! I am super excited to spend time with campers and staff, both old and new, and create more memories in my favorite place! I have played sports my whole life, specifically soccer and lacrosse, so I can’t wait to work in Landsports! In my summers away from Vega, I worked as a day camp counselor, which furthered my desire to return to my summer home. Vega has always had an extremely special place in my heart, and I can’t wait to spread that love and appreciation with all the campers. Can’t wait for an amazing summer!!

I am majoring in Business at Tecnologico de Monterrey Campus Guadalajara, and I´ll be the Volleyball Coach. I’ve been playing volleyball since I was 14 years old and I’ve always being a sporty girl. Some of my other passions are traveling and modeling. I’m really excited to meet you all and to have a great summer together 🙂!
