This will be Gerard’s 20th summer at Fessenden. He has been a senior counselor in both the middle camp and upper camps. He was the wood working specialist for four years and will be starting his seventh year as the CIT Director in 2023. Gerard has been a teacher at St John’s Preparatory School in Danvers for over 30 years. He also works part-time at the Countryside Children’s Center (K-6 program) in Newton Upper Falls. He has been a teacher there for over fifteen years.
His two sons have been campers and counselors at Fessy. Currently his wife MaryAnn is a senior counselor in the half-day program and his daughter Becca is the camp program director.
My favorite thing about camp…
Sports, Sports and more Sports. I love playing, running, coaching and refereeing sports at camp. My favorite sports activity is running and participating in the upper camp floor hockey tournament.
His favorite camp memory was building and painting an Adirondack bench with the Teen Trippers. Many of whom were his CITs last summer.
