Ginger and Steve Clare – Directors
Ginger and Steve’s story really is a camp story. They met one summer while both working at an all-girls sleepaway camp in Massachusetts, and, after a few years of persistent, long-distance courtship, were married in 2003. After 12 summers returning to camp together, rising through the ranks to eventually become year-round Assistant Director and Program Director, it was time for a camp of their own: Camp Kippewa. They made the move to Kippewa in 2008, bringing along their newborn son Aidan. In December of 2011, the Clares welcomed their second son, Brett into the Kippy family. And in October 2015 they rounded out their family of five with a baby girl named Courtney.
Of course there’s a little more to the story.
