Meet The Directors

Meet Deb "Hook" Hooker

Camp Hoover has been a part of my life since I was 9-years-old! I can still recall some of my favorite memories as a camper—from hiking, to sleeping out under the starts, to creating my own pinch pot of clay and, of course, the last night campfires. Each summer opens the door for a new group of girls to experience similar activities and carry away lifelong memories and friendships. Camp has given me the opportunity to make friends from around the world, to learn new skills, and to be the person I am today. I can't wait to meet you this summer and share my love of Camp Hoover with you and your family!


Meet Kate "Brisca" Grenci

Camp has been a huge part of my life for over 25 years, and I am very excited to kick off my third summer here at Camp DeWitt! Whether welcoming back returning campers or learning right alongside our new campers, every day is an opportunity for me to develop our program and to make this experience the best one yet. I can still remember my first day of camp and may days over the years, full of exciting activities like building a shelter in the woods, stargazing, cooking over a buddy burner, and so many all camp games.

Some of my favorite activities at Camp DeWitt are brooking with the girls, building campfires, and enjoying our sunsets from Engleman. I also love hearing songs (and laughter) filter through the woods throughout the day. The best part of my job is seeing a camper learn something new or try something they were afraid of doing. As a lifelong Girl Scout and longtime camper, I firmly believe in the magic summer camp holds. I hope you will join us and experience all we have to offer!


Meet Victoria "Thor" Laird

This is my third year as Camp Director at The OVAL and I cannot wait to see what adventures this summer brings! I love the smell of campfires and burnt marshmallows, the sound of songs and chants off in the woods, and the sight of happy campers playing on the field. Most importantly, I cherish seeing the positive impact that Girl Scouts and the outdoor experience has on our campers.

What am I most excited about this summer? Getting to be myself and share my silliness and love of the outdoors with all campers and staff. You will probably find me in mismatched socks and a paint-covered shirt, with a s'mores stick in one hand, a songbook book in the other, and absolutely loving life! I look forward to seeing you this summer and helping you continue your camp adventure!
