Hi, I’m Emma Horowitz and this will be my 12th summer at Camp Vega! I had the pleasure of being a camper for seven summers, alongside my sister and two cousins who also attended Vega. With my original campers coming back as counselors this year, this will be my fifth year as a staff member and my third summer as the Assistant Program Director.
I am originally from Long Island but couldn’t stand leaving Maine at the end of each summer, so I am now in my second year of living in Maine all year-round. During the off season I live in Portland and am a high school English teacher in Old Orchard Beach.
You would think after being with kids all year, spending my summer with more kids is what I would want to avoid- but Vega provides an atmosphere and environment that offers so much more than a classroom can. Not only do we instill the importance of tradition and savoring every breath we take, but Camp Vega is a place where campers and staff are able to delve more into themselves. These two months allow for its community members to follow the hopes we have, work towards dreams we’ve wanted to reach for, and form friendships and bonds that can’t be broken by anything. It is from the attributes that I cannot seem to stay away. I am counting down the days when I drive past Casco Bay and onto Echo Lake. I can’t wait and look forward to making the best out of another memorable summer!
Hi, My name is Kate, and I’m from Dublin, Ireland. I am beyond excited to be returning to Vega for my 3rd Summer, and heading back to my desk in The White House! When I’m not busy counting down the days till Camp, I work as an Administrative Assistant. I cannot wait to return to Vega and to have another magical, extraordinary summer with both the staff and the girls!
