Lisa Gaskin

Lisa will be returning for her 10th summer as Camp Administrator/Registrar. She previously served on Camp Claire’s Board of Directors from 2013 to 2019. For 2024 she will also return to the Board of Directors as Co-Secretary.

Lisa’s grandparents owned a summer cottage on Oakland Avenue and that is where, at the age of 7, her love of Camp Claire began. She transferred that love to her son by sending him off to our residential camp as soon as he was old enough and he has been an LIT, CIT, junior counselor, senior counselor, Kitchen Staff, Fishing Director, Sailing Director, Waterfront Director and last summer he was our Assistant Chef. This summer he will be returning as our Aquatics Director, a true testament to the Camp Claire magic!

Lisa holds a BS in Elementary Education from Pace University as well as an MSE in Elementary Education from Long Island University.

Camp Claire is Lisa’s happy place, and she is always striving to share this hidden gem where kids truly can just be kids.
