I get a lot of questions about my name.
It is Kindy. It’s not short for anything…
My parents named me “Kindy” which is a derivative of “Kinder” meaning “child” in German. I have always felt like my name suits me well. Even now, as an adult, I feel very child-like in my spirit. I love to have fun and play. If you have a hard time remembering my name, try these:

  • Cindy with a “K”
  • Kindy-bug
  • Kindy-garten
  • Kindy-bean
  • Or my personal fav…Kind with a “Y” (but the I is short)

• I am an only child but have 4 children of my own
• I grew up near the beach and have lived in California my entire life
• I directed my first Camp when I was 23
• I have been working with children for 2/3 of my life
• I have worked for the Girl Scouts, YMCA, County Office of Education, School Districts, and Private and Non-profit Camps.
• I love musical theater and will gladly break into character and song if requested.
• I have been married since 2002
• I love math, riddles and trying to figure out magic tricks
• I have my degree in Recreation Administration but originally went to college to be a lawyer
• I have never broken a bone
• In 2017, my family went on a 6-month road trip around the country.
• I have completed 2 marathons.

I love costumes…both making them and wearing them. I am inspired by the way they transform an ordinary person into a character. You will see many characters at camp. See if you can find me!

I am not afraid to try new things, to look silly or to be the center of attention. I am at home on stage but just as happy staying behind the scenes. You will see me every day at camp and I will be very busy. A lot of what I do will go unseen. I am part clown, part ninja.

I love the outdoors, spending time with adults and children and having fun. Camp Augusta is the perfect place to do what I love.

I have been told by my friends and family that I am very expressive. When people talk, I am often captivated by their words and don’t realize I show every thought on my face. It is most noticeable when I am being entertained (like watching a performance, talent show, or campfire).

When I laugh really hard, I make a noise that I have been told is reminiscent of a goose. If you laugh at my funny noise, it makes it worse

have four extraordinary children and we live close to camp in a charming farmhouse. We have 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 goats, 10 chickens and 4 ducks. For more than a decade, I was a stay-at-home mom. Raising children has taught me so much about myself, mostly about giving beyond myself and putting others’ needs before my own.
