Emma Horowitz – Logistics Director
Hi, I am Emma Horowitz and I am thrilled to be back for another beautiful summer at Vega as the Logistics Director. I started at Vega in 2001 as a nine-year-old camper and have since been a landsports counselor, worked on maintenance, and have been the Assistant Program Director for the past three summers. This year, I am excited to transition into my new role and expand on my position and responsibilities at camp. It is truly something amazing to be able to grow with camp and the experiences that come alongside it.
When I am not on the move from my White House office down to Echo Lake, I am a High School English Teacher in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. This is my fifth year teaching and my third year living in Maine full time. While I love working with my awesome students during the school year, it is always nice to know that once summer time hits, I am back with the Vega campers that get to experience the same joy I did as a camper for seven summers.
Having the opportunity to work with the campers as well as the staff provides a whole new perspective of camp each summer I return, and my love and appreciation for Vega seems to deepen with it. While some of the faces and smiles change summer to summer, the values and traditions of Vega seem to stay true, and I can’t wait to continue to contribute to them. So here’s to lucky summer 13 and I am sure, the best one yet!
Richard Askey – Operations Director
Hi! My name is Richard Askey from Chichester, England and this will be my first summer working at Camp Vega as the Office Manager. During the off season I work as a Marketing and Communications Manager. This summer you will find me in the white house in my office or around camp with my camera. I’m really looking forward to my first full summer at Vega, meeting everyone and enjoying cookouts by the lake.
I am already counting down the days until I get to return to Vega for my second summer at camp! Though writing emails, making spreadsheets, and sorting mail may not seem exciting, I love being a part of team office (aka the official bell ringers)! I am most looking forward to seeing my campers and Vega staff and making s’mores. I miss my Vega family and I cannot wait to be back in the White House in a few months setting up for the 2020 summer!
Check back soon for more 2020 staff!
