Thanks to their fundraising, guidance, connections and advocacy, we continue to be a catalyst for growth even after 110 years.
Our Advisory Board
- JEFF DIBLER (Chair of the Board)
- BRIAN MADDEN – Brian joined the Board in 2005 and has never looked back. As Brian shares, “It is hard to ignore the sheer beauty that engulfs every inch of YMCA Camp Letts. However, I would say it is the people (Staff & Board) who work together as a TEAM to accomplish many amazing things! Seeing the smiling faces of our campers having dinner or just playing as children with a carefree way about them makes the experience very special. This is the true beauty of Camp Letts - it allows, fosters, and encourages kids to be kids in a safe, positive family environment!”
- LISA CHARLES LEWIS - Lisa’s deep appreciation for Camp Letts began 14 years ago, when she initially entrusted her daughter to Camp Letts for her first sleepaway summer camp experience. Since 2003, her daughter, now a biomedical engineering student, has returned to Camp Letts every summer and will celebrate her 15th year at camp in 2018, 10 as a camper with this being her 5th on staff. ‘There’s something magical that happens at Camp Letts and children simply love being here,’ Lisa says. Lisa adores sharing camp stories, be they inspirational, challenging or downright comical, with potential donors who need to understand how supporting Camp Letts through annual giving and contributions can positively and sustainably impact a child’s personal growth and journey down the road of success. ‘Every child should have a Camp Letts experience’ is Lisa’s motto and she hopes to make Camp Letts a summer home for as many Metropolitan DC youth as possible.
- PETER GRAZZINI
- MARCIE SUN - Marcie joined the Board in 2003 because “Camp Letts has been a part of my life since my parents brought me to Family Camp when I was very young. Volunteering throughout the year makes me feel like I can give back to the place that has given me so much. My mom has always said that when you drive in through the gates, the whole world seems to lift off your shoulders and I could not agree more. Being at Camp Letts reminds you of the best things in life… beautiful scenery, kind and caring people, and building relationships with your family and community.”
