Kelsey Nobis: Camp Program Director

Kelsey's camp story started right here at Darts Lake as a camper in 2001. She grew up working for the YMCA in her hometown of Central New York. Kelsey has her bachelors from Springfield College. While attending university in Massachusetts, Kelsey started her professional camping career, with a curriculum that was saturated in leadership and team building skills-- Kelsey fit right at home spending her summers at YMCA summer camps. Kelsey found a passion for working and advocating for urban youth. This passion carried her to Vermont to peruse a law degree. After graduating from the green mountain state, Kelsey moved back home to New York to put the finishing touches on her 1973 Airstream and study for the bar exam. Kelsey wasn't home long before she found herself back in the doors of the all too familiar YMCA. In 2019, Kelsey packed her bags and with her dog Scout, moved to the Adirondacks to help contribute to the magic here at YMCA Camp Gorham. She couldn't be more excited to be here. If you're looking for Kelsey, you can probably find her at the waterfront, if you need her sooner, send her an email.
