Introducing our Girls’ Head Counselor, Amanda Robertson, otherwise known as Tiny Ham. Though her name may sound small she has an enormous presence in our camp.
A vivacious and inspirational leader she comes to Weequahic with tremendous camping experience. Having worked for seven years at a reputable Northeast residential camp, she brings with her a love of camp-life and campers. Her enthusiastic and creative contributions to daily programming, special events and evening activities are fantastic. She is thrilled to be at Weequahic for the endearing campers, beautiful setting and strong relationship with her colleagues and friends.
What distinguishes Tiny among our fantastic leadership is her ability to connect with girls of all ages, including our female counselors. She works tirelessly to ensure that the overall bunk experience is a positive one for all the girls.
She has her nimble hands in all facets of camp life and whether she is MC’ing the Miss Weequahic Evening Activity or teaching an early morning water aerobics class she wears a bright and engaging smile. Her ability to understand the nuances of young girls is impressive and she is am amazing role model. She is as playful as she is responsible and balances her duties admirably.
Born and raised in Tennessee, Tiny moved to Atlanta, GA to pursue her career as a school psychologist; she simply loves working with kids. When not mentoring youngsters, she enjoys the outdoors, watching sports, reading and traveling.
Weequahic is indebted to Tiny for her seamless transition to our camp and her deep commitment to fulfilling our mission and traditions. Thanks, Tiny!
