Staff Spotlight: Casey Kilian, 
Assistant Director 
Hi, my name is Casey and I am very excited for the opportunity to work at Camp Owasco this summer! For the past three years, I have worked at Frost Valley YMCA as an environmental educator and I have been the head of our After School Program since December.  Some of my past experiences include working on a Trail Crew through AmeriCorps, leading canoe trips on the Delaware River, running day camp and teaching Pre-kindergarten.  I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from East Stroudsburg University and a double master's degree in Environmental Education and Park Resource Management from Slippery Rock University.  In my free time, love to read, canoe, scrapbook and play board games.
