Directors and Leadership

Camp Director

Jon Hammond

Jon has been the director at Hosmer Point since the camp was founded in 2010.  He created many of the traditions and activities found on camp today including the farm and gardens, House Cup, Community Tree and even the Polar Bear chant.  Prior to Hosmer Point,  Jon was a physical education teacher for thirteen years, coached high school girls soccer, and worked in many capacities for Windridge Tennis Camp (the previous owner of the camp property). Jon has a passion for this "camp on the hill" and what it offers to everyone who steps foot on it. He is proud to call this place "home." Jon works for camp year-round, marketing camp, visiting families, and working with local schools.  He also keeps busy keeping up with his two sons, Eli and Oliver.   Please don't hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions or if you would like him to visit when he is in your area. E-mail him at jon.hammond@hosmerpoint.com.

 

Assistant Director

Sarah Bell

With her extensive background in camping, Sarah is always thinking of ways to improve camp.  So far, she’s made improvements to our Counselor In Training program, developed our Leader In Training camp, and been a key player in the construction of our new low ropes course – just to name a few of her many projects.  As a year-round camp employee, Sarah works on hiring and program development in the winter, with campers and staff all summer, and manages our outreach programs in the spring and fall.  When she’s not at camp, Sarah lives with her husband, Charlie, and Lab mix, Violet, in a school bus-turned-tiny house in Lincoln, VT. You can reach Sarah at sarah.bell@hosmerpoint.com 

 

Office Manager

Carrie Glessner

2016 will be Carrie’s 5th year in the office at Hosmer Point.  While Jon and Sarah are out making camp happen, Carrie is working on the next session – signing up campers, making sure everyone’s paperwork is in order, and that every family is ready for camp. When you email info@hosmerpoint.com, Carrie fields your questions. As a year-round camp employee, Carrie loves the relationships she builds with camp families – from answering their first questions to registering campers for the next year on closing day. Carrie and her husband, Will, have a small farm in near-by Westfield where they raise chickens, pigs, and lots of fruits and veggies.  You can reach Carrie at carrie.glessner@hosmerpoint.com
