Jamie has an LLB (English JD) and has submitted his PhD in Law.  While in England, Jamie is a university lecturer, teaching law, and a community director of a collection of local elementary schools. Summer camp, however, is where Jamie’s heart is! Having worked at summer camps throughout the USA, from Pennsylvania to Texas, he cannot wait to experience the Hamptons and to work with our campers. This will be his eighth summer working at camp and he hopes to ensure that summer 2015 will be remembered by every camper as their happiest. He wants to share our commitment to teaching campers the skills of making and keeping friends, while building their self-esteem, self-confidence, and resilience, and cannot wait to build on this with us this summer. If you ever have a question for Jamie, he is very approachable and will ensure that your needs are met.
