Twelve of Bryn’s past summers were spent entirely at summer camp programs. From activities director for 100 non-English speakers to introducing a dance fitness program at a sports camp in the Poconos, choreographing Cats for 64 middle division students, and all the way back to her first week of sleepaway camp in the woods, Bryn loves summer camp and believes in the value of fun and educational summer programs. Bryn is so excited to be leading the Summer Arts Institute at Berkeley Preparatory School!
