Establishing Sandy Days Kids Camp has long been a dream of mine. I have been working with kids for more than eighteen years in summer camps and educational settings. For the last seventeen years, I have been Athletic Director of the deToledo High School, where I founded and developed an interscholastic athletic program with over twenty teams, and the physical education department. The kids who are involved in my high school sports program have a great deal of fun and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. Before that, I taught physical education in public schools (I have a California teaching credential to teach PE from kindergarten through grade twelve). During summers, I have worked at a variety of sports camps where I could not help but develop my own ideas of what comprises a great summer camp for young children. Our core is creating a fun experience that also promotes growth in skills and confidence. I was inspired to create an ideal summer experience for my two children and I am delighted to provide it for yours, as well.
