Tom and Hylton are the consummate camp directors… and the KenMont and KenWood dynamic duo! They are the hands-on, involved in everything, always available when you need them, patient and caring camp directors. It is their dedicated leadership and selfless attitude that gives camp its special feeling.

Tom & Hylton — Your Partners in Parenting

We understand how important it is to choose the right camp for your child. At KenMont and KenWood we offer an environment that nurtures development of individual character, self confidence and the learning of new skills.

As a camp family, we join hands not only with our campers and staff, but with the families of our campers as well. There is a very special feeling of warmth and caring at KenMont and KenWood that permeates throughout our camps and creates an environment that becomes a true home away from home for all our campers.

Our exceptional attention to detail allows us to focus on the individual needs of each of our campers, allowing them to achieve social success and make wonderful new friendships that last a lifetime. The enthusiasm, spirit and magic that makes camp so special is something that evolves by having a dedicated and talented leadership team working with us year round with a commitment to make each summer better than the last.

Our camps are a place where children can experience the best summers of their lives. We hope that you will give us the opportunity to discuss with you and your family what makes KenMont and KenWood Camps so special.

I am so proud to be a Director of KenMont and KenWood Camp and to be a part of the history of this special place! Camp has been the center of my world for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a counselor, Athletic Director, Head Counselor, Staff Recruiter, Associate Director and now Director. KMKW holds a very special place in my heart.

Summer days give me the opportunity to indulge my love of “hoops” as well as taking part in waterfront activities, climbing and making up fun dishes in our cooking program. More than anything, I love forming great relationships with our campers and parents as well as helping campers create bonds with their peers.

Free time away from camp is spent with my wife Michele (camp’s Administrative Director) and our children Jake and Olivia (both veteran campers). We enjoy watching Jake try all different kinds of adventure and sports activities. Olivia is an artist and a gymnast who loves to perform. When not at camp, I spend as much time as possible with my family, traveling and enjoying sports.

Yes! Let’s talk

The directors and staff couldn’t be more terrific — they are responsible, responsive and caring.


I was very excited to join an amazing team as a Director of KenMont and KenWood Camp in November 2019. It has been fantastic to join a camp with such a rich tradition of providing an exceptional camp experience to generations of campers and I’m excited to continue the amazing work with Tom and our team.

I have been in the camping world for over 20 years. After becoming a Camp Director at a residential camp in South Africa, I moved to New Jersey to explore a whole other world of camping in the USA. I went on to become the Director of an overnight summer camp in the Poconos for ten years. Today, I’m always excited to share my love of camp with the KenMont and KenWood family!

My passion for camping ensures that every camper leaves camp feeling enriched and filled with memories from the best summer of their lives, counting down the days until they can return to their home away from home.

In the off-season, I live in New Jersey with my wife Amanda, our two boys, Dylan and James and our Boston Terrier, Gillie. We are a true camp family and we are looking forward to becoming a part of yours.
