We are excited to announce the hiring of our new camp
director! That’s correct, it’s not a typo.
After over 25 years as a member of our camp family, 20 as our director,
Charles (Chuck) and Peg Washer have decided to start taking some time
off and enjoying the cool Maine summers with their family. We cannot thank them enough for all the time,
hard work and care they devoted to making High Meadow the camp it is
Oh, back to the subject at hand! Ben Chaback is a lifelong CT resident and
“Camp Guy.” He attended Camp Laurelwood
every summer as a kid in Madison, CT and has worked at summer camps while
attending school and while working for different school systems as a social worker. Ben received his MSW
from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he met his lovely wife Carla.
He has worked in the school systems of Cromwell, Detroit MI, and Hamden at
the elementary, middle and high school levels.
Ben trained for the director’s position at our sister camp in Cheshire,
Holiday Hill Day Camp. We feel so lucky
to introduce Ben and Carla in this, our 61st season at High Meadow
Welcome Ben! Welcome Carla!
