Sears Park Summer Camp 

Program Director Kat Robinson - K-5 Grade Program 
Kat Robinson may be new to the position as director, but she is not new to Sears Park Summer Camp! Kat has worked with Parks and Recreation in the past as assistant director at camp, but is excited to step in as director for the 2021 Summer. Originally from East Hampton, Kat has attended East Hampton schools and was even a Sears Park camp goer 20 years ago! Kat may also be a familiar face to many of our campers and families as she is in her third year as the Physical Education and Health teacher at Center School. Kat enjoys working with her fourth and fifth graders and feels so fortunate to be part of such an amazing school and town. Kat attended Westfield State University in Massachusetts to earn her Bachelor’s degree in Movement Science and Physical Education and this past winter she finished her program at the University of St. Joseph’s and earned her Master’s degree in Special Education. Kat enjoys all things involving the outdoors; swimming, hiking, mountain biking, barbequing, taking her dog for walks and more! Kat is very excited to step into this new position as Camp Director and looks forward to sunshiny days, lots of laughter and a safe, fun-filled summer at Sears Park!

Program Director Meghan Wood - 6-8 Grade Program 

Meghan is currently the assistant director of Afternoon Adventures before and after school program and was previously assistant director at Sears Park Summer Camp. She is looking forward to her new role as the Middle School Camp Director for the Sears Park Summer Camp! She is graduating in May with her bachelor’s degree in Developmental Psychology and already has two associates degrees, one being in early childhood. She is also pursuing a master’s degree in school psychology within the next year. Meghan has worked in a parks and recreation environment for over 7 years, and is very enthusiastic about starting this next chapter in her career development! Meghan enjoys spending time with family and friends, going on hikes, taking trips to the beach, and kayaking right here on Lake Pocotopaug. She can’t wait to spend the summer having fun and making memories with new and familiar middle school campers.
