Camp has many, many moving parts, and the Master of Operations (MOP) is just the person to fit them all together. Resources, programming supplies, vans, processes, and people – putting these resources together at the right place and right time makes our summer run smoothly, and the MOP is the spider at the center of that web. As our programs and site need constant upkeep, materials, and time dedicated toward them, the MOP will schedule the right person with the right task, and consistently find areas of camp that need order, function, ease, and smoothness.
