  • Cameron Calista

    Summer Camp Director/Environmental Educator


    SLNC welcomes Cameron Calista as of January 11, 2021!
    I am so glad to be officially joining the Friends of SLNC team as the new Environmental Educator and Summer Camp Director!
    My Journey started here as an intern back in November of 2019 where I helped teach weekend programs, worked on trail maintenance, and assisted with the education and care of the animals at the SLNC Visitors’ Center.
    I then went on to graduate from Delaware Valley University in May of 2020 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science, and soon after became part of the SLNC Summer Camp as a Counselor in June.
    During the summer months, I created nature-oriented activities for the children on the weekdays, while also assisting with the SLNC Kayak Program on weekends. During this time, I gained an appreciation for education. After the Summer Camp and Kayak Programs were over, I was offered a job as an Environmental Educator in September for the weekly After-school Nature Classes, and have been teaching them alongside Kassandra for the past few months.
    Although I will miss Kass dearly and will have a hard time filling her shoes, she has done a wonderful job in helping me get prepared for the position, and I am excited for the new experiences it will present me.
