Leslie Konigsberg Levy, Director
From the moment I arrived at Tripp Lake Camp as a camper, I fell in love with its beauty, its people and its spirit. That love only grew as a counselor and, since 1999, as Director of Tripp Lake.
My experience as a camper and counselor led me to a lifetime of working with people. After graduating from Lehigh University, I earned a Masters’ degree in social work from Washington University in St. Louis, and then served for many years as a clinical social worker at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City. My experience as a camper and counselor also gave me a deep appreciation for Tripp Lake’s traditions and, coupled with my time as a social worker, a unique perspective on the benefits for a young girl of summers spent at Tripp Lake.
My husband Mitchell and I live in Rye Brook, New York with our sons David and Michael (former and current unofficial TLC mascots, respectively!)
Nancy McCann, Assistant Director
I first arrived at Tripp Lake Camp in 1976 and knew I would never want to leave! I started as a swim instructor and bunk counselor before serving as the Waterfront Director for five years. In 1985, I became Assistant Director and have been working full time at Tripp Lake ever since.
After graduating from the University of Maine at Farmington, I taught school for several years and was awarded Maine Home Economics Teacher of the Year in 1984. I ran the nationally recognized Project Graduation for two years before starting full time at Tripp Lake. I am currently a board member for the Maine Youth Camping Foundation and a member of the New England American Camping Association Standards Committee.
I live in Auburn, Maine with my daughter Julia when she is not away at college.
