CAMP DIRECTORS

Paula DeTellis Camp Director


Hello, parents! I am looking forward to another fun summer. Camp
Woodhaven has been part of my life for almost 23 years now. Soon
after George and I were married, the baton was passed to us. We
have seen the camp grow and blossom from just a dream. My role
has been the behind the scenes person for many years. I enjoy planning program that your children will find fun, but you will recognize as
educational.
Heres a little about my life. George and I live and work in Florida during the school year. We have a son who is 23 and a daughter who is
20. I love to cook food from many countries. I enjoy walking, hiking,
and biking for outdoor activities.
I appreciate the business side of camp as my degree is in finance, but I
also love the creative side of camp. I learned from a young age to use
my imagination to create interesting activities. My life growing up on a
dairy farm also gave me a love for Gods creatures and for plants and
trees as we grew almost all our own food. I hope to share this love for
the outdoors with your children.
George DeTellis Jr. Executive Director
Hi! My name is George DeTellis and I am the Executive Director of
Camp Woodhaven. My grandfather, Charlie DiPietro, founded Camp
Woodhaven sixty years ago. Today my grandfather is 96 and still
drives out on a sunny day to check up on me. As a boy, I spent my
summers here at camp when my Dad was the camp director. I love
this old camp and want to preserve it for future generations of children.
In 2002, I graduated from Rollins College with my MBA. During my
time in graduate school, I decided to use the analysis tools we used for
case studies to develop a business plan for Camp Woodhaven. In
2002, I turned Camp Woodhaven into a day camp focused on the
needs of working parents. My wife and my two children live with me
here at camp during the summer. Every year, my kids cant wait to
get out of school and spend their summers here at Camp Woodhaven.
Camp is a lot of work and long hours, but there is something wonderful
that takes place here in the lives of children. Seeing all of our campers
having the time of their life gives me the greatest sense of fulfillment.
Josh Director of Upper Camp (ages 11-13)
I am elated and blessed to announce that I will be returning for yet another summer at Camp
Woodhaven. You might think me insane for returning for this my eighth year and I would
have to agree with you because you have to be a little crazy to work at a summer camp, just
ask any of my coworkers. Part of the reason I find myself returning each year is the relationships that have been formed over summers with campers and staff alike. There are many
campers who were just Robins and Bluebirds when I started all of those years ago and just
last year they became Owls and Eagles.
Another gift I have received from working at Camp Woodhaven is the ability to see campers
come full circle and now work right alongside me. This marks our third year of the Upper
Camp program, which I have to say far exceeded expectations thanks to all of the hard
work and cooperation by staff, campers and parents who contributed. I am so excited for
camp to start because frankly it wouldnt be summer without camp.
This past year I worked in the Shrewsbury Public School system until February I began
teaching fifth and sixth graders History and English at Holden Christian Academy. I was
provided a unique opportunity in that I worked with many campers both current and former
in the school setting. It certainly was a lot of fun to recall prior camp experiences and stories
with them as we got down to learning and also generate excitement for the upcoming summer. That being said I am really looking forward to another exciting summer with all of my
friends at Camp Woodhaven.

life, whether it be by helping out in the Trading Post or simply saying

different! I'm very excited for the summer ahead, and hope that we

Diane-Program Facilitator & Maintenance


Greetings! My name is Diane and this will be summer #5 for me at Woodhaven. For 21 years now, Ive been married and living on a small farm in
Paxton. Now that my son has graduated and there are no more football
games or practices in my life, Ive decided to start my childhood over.
Learning to read Greek, track critters on my snowshoes, and play in the
brass ensemble, at church are at the top of my to do list in the winter.
(And going south!) Here at camp Im behind the scenes although the
green golf cart is frequently an indicator of where I am. From the kitchen,
to the pool, through the fields, and out into the woods you might find me
taking care of the camp property or helping staff in ways that better enable
them to give the campers great Woodhaven experiences. So, if its a hose
you want to spray campers with on a hot day at the gaga pit, or you find a
skunk stuck in the mole-ball court: give a call on the radio and Ill be there!
