Lindsay’s love and passion for camp began in the summer of 2003 when she took her very first steps off the bus and onto the Iroquois Springs camp grounds. It didn’t take long for her to realize that camp is where she truly felt at home and would play a significant part in her life, long after her camper days were complete. From camper to counselor and now staffing coordinator, Lindsay has loved every summer she’s spent at camp. After graduating from the University of Delaware, Lindsay entered the professional camp world where she spent 5 years working full- time for various camps. Lindsay couldn’t stay away from Iroquois Springs, so she spent her weekends off during those summers giving tours at Iroquois Springs. Lindsay’s dream became a reality when she accepted a full-time job at Iroquois Springs for 2022. Along with Matthew, her co-staffing coordinator, Lindsay now spends her days finding the incredible role models who will shape the lives of the IS campers for years to come!
Matthew, a native Floridian, spent his first summer at Iroquois Springs way back in 2006. From camper to counselor to group leader and now staffing coordinator, Matthew hasn’t missed a summer at camp in nearly two decades. After attending the University of Central Florida in Orlando, Matthew took his talents to the open seas and worked as a youth activity’s director for Carnival Cruise Line in Sydney, Australia. Joining the year-round Iroquois Springs team in 2022 has been a dream come true for Matthew.
Josh and Rosanne “Rosie” Bogard have been part of Iroquois Springs since day 1, and we are lucky to have them as our Boys and Girls Head Counselors! Josh is currently a school counselor in the Stamford, CT school district while Rosanne is a school social worker for the Lynbrook Public Schools; both Josh and Rosie hold Master’s Degrees and State Certifications in School Administration.
As lifelong campers and staff members, both understand how to make the camp experience a success for our entire camp community. They work tirelessly each day to ensure that every detail, big or small, is being attended to and every camper maximizes their experience while in our care. Josh and Rosie met at a different camp and enjoy having the opportunity to impart their passion and love for camp to every camper and staff member at Iroquois Springs. They are an integral part of our staff training orientation program and take pride in developing a dynamic and engaged staff of counselors who make the camp experience come alive in each cabin. They are lucky to have raised both of their children at Iroquois Springs from only a few months old and currently have one child on each respective side of camp. They care for each camper as if they were their own, and run each side of camp in a manner that not only encourages but celebrates children for their accomplishments and challenges. Just come to one of their morning flag pole line-ups and you will see that while children are laughing and having fun they are also learning lifelong skills that will benefit them well beyond their years at Iroquois Springs.
Josh and Rosie grew up and worked alongside Mark, Brian and Laura in a previous camp. We pride ourselves in the longevity of our core team and truly believe that the family environment that we have created is one of the aspects that makes Iroquois Springs so special.
Jared Brown joined the Iroquois Springs family in February 2021 as the Office & Communications Manager.
Upon graduating from Hofstra University with a dual degree in Mass Media Studies and Rhetorical Studies, Jared knew that he wanted to pursue a career in camp.
Jared developed his love for camp at a young age; specifically, he was a day camp camper and then a residential camp camper. After his camp experiences, Jared worked at a prominent day camp on Long Island in various capacities for six years. During his tenure, Jared worked alongside the administrative team. He helped with transportation, special events, the camper & staff experience, camper & staff recruiting, and he even worked with the 1st & 2nd-grade division for many summers. Within that time, Jared recognized how fulfilling a camp career is and immediately sought a full-time camping position upon his graduation in 2020.
Jared facilitates communication between camp and prospective, current, alumni families, and staff. As the trusted point of contact, Jared manages administrative functions while advancing the camp philosophy by listening to and appropriately responding to each member of our community.
Jared is an active member of the SCOPE (Summer Camp Opportunities Promote Education) Young Professionals Associate Board. Jared is the VP of Communication on the Associate Board and the adult facilitator for the Junior Leadership Committee (Teens who organize for SCOPE). He is also an active member of E.P.I.C. (Emerging Professionals in Camping), a part of the American Camp Association. Additionally, Jared works closely with Green Camps to promote green sustainability on our campus and is the internship program coordinator at Iroquois Springs. Jared has been such a great addition to our team, as his dynamic perspective is unique.
