BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Andy Pritikin is the Owner/Director of Liberty Lake Day Camp, Founder/Producer of the New Jersey Renaissance Faire, and the President of the American Camp Association NY/NJ. For over 20 years, Andy has supported organizations such as SCOPE (Summer Camp Opportunities Provide an Edge) and Project Morry which send underprivileged children from inner cities to Camp. These programs inspired Andy and Brandi to create the Liberty Lake Foundation to support and partner with families in the local towns surrounding Liberty Lake.
The longest tenured employee of “the Lake,” Brandi is the personification of Camp. She makes a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of campers and teammates each summer. Her love of camp and the reality that it changes lives inspired her, along with Andy to create the Liberty Lake Foundation for Youth. Her hope is that the Foundation will help even more children both inside and outside the summer camp experience. Brandi whole heartily believes that children deserve a safe and nurturing community in which they can grow and learn. Her goal is that the Foundation, along with it’s partners, can create this community for as many kids as possible. Brandi stays busy at Liberty Lake Day Camp, mentoring foster children through Oaks Integrated Care, and her best, most important gig-being a mom to her baby girl Magnolia May!
I’m a working mom of two boisterous and delightful Liberty Lake Day Campers. I initially sent my children to Liberty Lake with the hopes of them having a very active, hands-on summer, outdoors. What we have experienced has so been so much more. Liberty Lake has turned my children into true Adventurers, everyday exploring new terrain, using lessons learned from the day before, forging new friendships, and discovering their own core values. The experience Liberty Lakes provides can’t really be captured in words…yes, it’s chockfull of everything summer break should be…pools, water ice, friends… but there is some element of magic to how the core values of Aspiration, Integrity, Friendship and Teamwork are weaved into everything that make it a very special place. Every child deserves to a great summer adventure, and I am honored to serve on the Foundation Board.
A summer camper from way back, Amy knew she had found the summer home for her two children the minute she saw Liberty Lake Day Camp. As both a parent and an educator, she has seen the transformative power of summer camp in children’s lives.
Inspired by Liberty Lake Day Camp’s efforts to make summer camp available to as many children as possible, Amy became a Liberty Lake Foundation board member in 2015. A librarian, educator, tech geek, and would-be world traveler, Amy is proud to support the Foundation financially and as a volunteer.
My name is Stephanie Fooks-Parker and this is my first year serving on the Liberty Lake Foundation Board of Directors. I am a pediatric oncology social worker at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Most of my adult life has been dedicated to helping children and their families. I wanted to continue this work by being a part of the board and give back to Liberty Lake Day Camp.
My son Harrison has attended camp since he was 4 and he just completed the LIT program. In addition to overall fun, Liberty Lake has taught him so much over the years. Harrison has become a caring, thoughtful and independent teenager. His experience at Liberty Lake has been invaluable. Every child should be given the opportunity to attend camp. I wanted to be part of the Board so I can give as many children as possible that special opportunity.
