HCDC All-Stars: Ben Wiley

We’re excited to announce a new feature here at the Hampton Sun: HCDC All-Stars! While you might know our Directors Dave Skolnik and Doris Rosen, and our Associate Director Jane Olshever, you might not know all of our team that helps make each summer so great. So, throughout the summer, we’ll be featuring key staff members who work tirelessly to make sure each camper has an amazing time! Sit back, relax and get to know our All-Stars a little better…


Job: HCDC Swim Director, High School Art Teacher at Half Hollow Hills the rest of the year!
Nickname: “Beaner”
Hometown: Sherrill, NY (Little known fact: Sherrill is the smallest city in New York State! It’s near Syracuse)

Years @ Camp: 1st yr at HCDC, 3 yrs. at sister-camp North Shore Day Camp

When I’m not at HCDC, you’ll find me: Drawing Cartoons, Riding my bike, Swimming at the Beach, and Eating Ice Cream

Favorite HCDC hangout: The POOLS of course!!!

What do I most love about HCDC?: Greeting the MANY excited swimmers at the pool gate before each swim. Being able to watch the young campers grow into excellent swimmers, while having fun and playing safe in the pools. Lastly, updating my daily white board with the “Cartoon of the Day” at the upper camp pool fence! (The Daily Ice-Cream snack isn’t bad either though!)

Favorite Activities: Free and Instructional Swim, Friday’s STARFISH Pow-Wow, Spirit Days in the POOLS
