CHRIS PACE, DIRECTOR OF St. SEBASTIAn's Sports camp
kathryn horn coneway, director of art camp
GAYLE TURNER, Director of Music & Drama Camp (MAD)
Jim Short, Director of St. George's Camp
Jim Short is super excited to be returning for his third summer as Director of St. George’s! Transitioning from two years as Musical Director and Camp Director of MAD Camp, Jim is pumped to extend the edges of our camp body to include all campers at all camps under the same love and inclusivity. Jim comes to us this year from California where he is a PhD student in Theatre and Drama at UC San Diego. Jim likes most things including Meatloaf (both the food and rock idol), floating on his back in the pool (which he is terrible at), and Bocce Ball (which he played once at an engagement party…it was ok). He believes it takes the same effort to be positive as it does negative. It’s the same energy to be kind as it is hateful. If you dig deep enough, you can never run out of love. Jim also loves: His dog Ollie, his grandma, coffee, snails, la commedia dell’arte, games of tag, basketball, coconut curry soup, Harry Potter, the color orange, lists, and Love Letter.
