A.J. Edwards

Camp Summer Discovery Director

I have worked for the Y since 2016, where I started out at the front desk and Camp Tycony. I started working in OST in 2018, and am now directing Summer Discovery and the Emergency Child Care. I spent three summers at Camp Tycony and switched things up to work at Summer Discovery. I am excited for the change, but plan to make frequent visits to Camp Tycony. I grew up at the YMCA, so being able to work with the next generation of Y Kids is an incredible honor. I make it my goal to give our kids the best summer ever.

We Know How to Make Learning Fun For Kids

Being part of our summer day camp program is about learning who you are and becoming what you want to be.
