Jeremy Berse, Assistant Director ×
After an incredible summer spent working as a counselor in 1993, Jeremy kindly thanked Tom for an awesome opportunity. He had an amazing time teaching arts & crafts, inline skating, playing Dungeons & Dragons with the campers and working with a great bunk group of younger boys.
However, Jeremy felt it was time to move on and told Tom he would try something new the following summer instead of returning to camp. Twenty something summers later, Jeremy is still at camp and working as one of the assistant directors. “Camp has that effect on people…” Jeremy says, seeing it not only in himself but in the number of campers and staff who say they just
haven’t found another place like it. Jeremy loves working for camp because to him, “Camp still feels new and exciting every summer and I continue to learn from the camp community. I get to work with the most awesome group of campers and staff.” We’re all surprised that Jeremy still has energy at the end of the summer, because he is constantly moving, working, thinking,
and brainstorming to keep each summer at camp unforgettable.
Over the years, Jeremy has worked as a counselor, Head Counselor, Weekend Adventure Leader and Special Events coordinator at Campus Kids. Before working full time at camp in the year-round office, Jeremy tried a lot of different jobs. He worked as a teacher’s assistant at a special needs school, a snowboard instructor, and a real estate agent just to name a few.
Jeremy and his wife Vanessa (a former CK counselor and office worker) were married in 2005, and actually almost had their wedding at camp! When they aren’t busy with camp and Vanessa’s “real job”, they love to go snowboarding and camping. They are avid fans of science fiction, video games, all kinds of music, NPR and WFMU. Jeremy loves to spend time at home cooking
and playing with his three cats.
