Placing children first means having a first-class team and our team is the very best in the business. More important than our Monroe location, or any facility on our campus, is the nurturing, spirited staff, excited to teach campers the many Rosmarins traditions, and have fun!

Rosmarins’ dedicated, talented staff is the heart of camp, committed to helping campers learn, grow and have more fun than they ever imagined possible! Campers build confidence and skills in a healthy, safe, nurturing, and energizing setting. Our extremely low camper-to-staff ratios ensure individualized attention and support.

The entire staff receive extensive pre-camp training in safety, child-development, and camp procedures, and participates in performance evaluations and a merit based incentive program throughout the summer.

A full-time Camp Nurse is on site at all times.

Jeanette Geller

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

Now that it’s 2018, 16 summers! Who would have thought that coming to pick my son up in my tennis whites after working at my former camp would have turned into me becoming a member of the Rosmarins Day Camp family. I was offered a position as the Tennis Specialist for the following summer which evolved into helping out in the office and wherever needed, to official camp photographer, and now actually holding down the fort in the office for the last 11 or so summers. My office duties over these summers have gone from computer technician, to typist, to newsletter editor, to transportation, all of which I continue to do. I have never been a Rosmarins camper, but I do enjoy watching the campers have fun, especially when I join them in their activities.

During the fall and spring, I am a professor of cyber security/networking at Rockland Community College and also chair of the Computer Assisted Design, Computer Studies, and Cyber Security departments.

Karen Hartmann

Camp Nurse

When campers scrape their knee, get a bug bite, or poison ivy, the Camp Nurse is ready and waiting with a bandaid, some calamine lotion, a warm smile, and some reassurance. For some of the very hot days, the air conditioned facility is a comfortable place for campers to lay quietly and recharge their batteries.

Donnette Hill Walto

YOGA INSTRUCTOR

Namasté! My name is Donnette Hill Walto. As a yoga practitioner and teacher for more than 20 years there is nothing I love more then to see kids get excited about yoga. They are masters at movement whether it be standing (and wobbling) in tree pose or trying to do warriors I, II and III in the pool. What amazes me (and them) the most is to see the inner stillness that comes from just a few moments of relaxation. Connecting breath, movement and laughter is what I love to do. I am honored to bring these connections to the Campers at Rosmarins this summer.
