Sam and Ilisha Borek – Owners/Directors

Ilisha and Sam have dedicated their lives to working in the world of children’s summer camps and it has been a dream come true to have a camp of their own.

Sam was the Program Director at Camp Laurel in Maine and the Administrative Director of Elmwood Day Camp in White Plains, New York. Sam is the President Emeritus and currently serves on the Board of the American Camp Association New York/New Jersey section which oversees hundreds of both day and residential camps. He also sits on the Board of Change Summer, a not-for-profit organization that offers summer camp opportunities for under-resourced youth. Ilisha serves as a Board of Education Member at the Haworth School and on the Board of Directors for NJY Camps.

Ilisha and Sam are proud parents of two sons who have been lucky enough to grow up at Woodmont and are now staff members.
