Amy Podolsky is the Director of Camp Sewataro, a position she has held since 2020. In the more than 10 years prior, Amy held many roles on Liberty Ledge – too numerous to include here – making her an incredible choice to lead the staff of approximately 200 counselors.
“There is nothing like the indescribable magic of Camp Sewataro! We’re often referred to as an overnight camp, but without the sleeping part.”
“I love seeing the lifelong friendships among campers as they come back year after year. Both of my (now adult) sons have met some of their best friends back when they were in the Fox section! I think that’s rare in the day camp world, yet we see it summer after summer.”
Having her own children as campers and later counselors provided Amy with a unique perspective into the camp experience and she is a remarkable conduit to counselors, campers and parents alike.
“I love this camp, I love working with this team, and I cannot wait to continue doing what we do best…making sure that each day is both special and unique, and that, above all, every camper has an amazing, fun-filled, and meaningful camp experience.”
Amy is exceptional at cultivating Camp Sewataro’s special sense of community, helping foster a sense of belonging and inclusion unrivaled in camping or the outside world.
“We work hard to build a sense of community where each person belongs – and matters – and is supported in becoming the best version of themselves.
Amy has earned more than 100 CEU’s from the American Camp Association and is as dedicated as ever to making Camp Sewataro great.
“Our traditions – the daily ones and the annual ones – are the bows on top; and what I think sets us apart most is the friendships that are developed at camp, and the dedicated counselors who work so hard to create that sense of unity and community within their groups.”
After spending several years working in television, as a Special Projects Producer, and as a Researcher for the PBS Kids show ZOOM!, Amy’s life changed direction with kids. Thankfully, those signs all led to Sewataro.
In her rare free time, Amy enjoys dance, yoga, creative writing, watching movies, and helping out in her community. Above all, she loves her family and friends and is a longtime Sudbury resident along with her husband and two sons.
