The YMCA of Greater Rochester, founded on Christian principles, is a charitable organization with an inclusive environment committed to enriching the quality of family, spiritual, social, mental and physical well-being.
Julie oversees the daily operations of Camp Westside. She first began with the YMCA of Greater Rochester in 1987 at the Maplewood Family YMCA as a Camp Counselor and Preschool Assistant. She returned to the Y in Greater Province Rhode Island in 2003 where she was a School Aged Site Coordinator. During the summer, she developed her love for day camp, playing the role of Art Specialist, Beachfront Specialist, Waterfront Director and finally Camp Director. In 2008, Julie returned to the Rochester area where she got a job at the Bay View Family YMCA. She was a site coordinator and within a year became a Multi-Site Coordinator. During the summer at Bay View, she started as the Unit Head of the 1-2 grades. Julie began leading our LIT and CIT programs after her third summer.
In March of 2015, Julie came to the Westside Family YMCA to oversee the Summer Camp and Before and After school program. Julie brings a lot of experience to Camp Westside and is looking forward to creating memories that campers and their families will remember for a lifetime!
