Club U prides itself on its exemplary staff- truly they are the individuals who bring the magic of the camp experience to the forefront.
Our staff is comprised of individuals who are committed to making a difference in the lives of Club U campers by being positive and supportive role models who ensure an inclusive atmosphere to nurture individual and social growth. Staff come from various backgrounds - current and former University of Utah students, educators in the community, and individuals interested in making positive contributions to the youth of tomorrow. All staff are thoroughly background checked each year, trained in first aid and CPR/AED, and undergo comprehensive youth development training and pre-summer Club U orientation to ensure the safety and wellbeing for all campers.
Sam is excited to join Club U as the new Camp Director. She has a degree in Marine Biology from the other U (Miami, FL) and is excited to add another to her life experience. Even though she has a science degree, she has always been passionate about informal education and creating lasting experiences in the great outdoors. Sam was a camp kid herself, attending day camp in her stomping grounds of Chicago until she became a counselor at 16. She has over 8 years of youth education experience and 5 years of camp experience. Ask her about the ocean or Chicago sports and she’ll talk your ear off!
