Cathy Jones-Brimmer is our Camp Chef for each lunch and dinner served! The meals are delicious and have been developed with input from campers so they are “camper” friendly! During the school year Cathy is School Bus Driver for the South Jefferson Central School District. Cathy has been very active in the past in 4-H and FFA Programs and has attended several horse shows and events with her daughter Allison and their family horses. Ali was once a counselor at camp before attending college at Cornell University
Marla Ivey-Mendoza joined the counselor ranks during the Summer of 2017 and brings with her a wealth of craft knowledge and a desire to work with young ladies in this capacity after having two boys of her own. Marla is often found at the farm helping to prepare for camp and designing posters and paintings found on the property. Marla previously worked for the Department of Defense in airline terminals across the United States.
Carissa Clark returned after a six year absence from horse camp due to her joining the United States Navy. We are very pleased to have Carissa rejoining us upon her return back to the Cape Vincent area. Prior to entering the Navy, Carissa was a weekly fixture at camp both as a camper and a counselor for several years. Carissa’s love for horses and familiarity with camp make her irreplaceable and loved by campers.
Aimee Chapman is always around to share in the good times at camp. We enjoy working with Aimee and her sense of humor and how she interacts with all of the campers. She owns two horses. The first is an American Quarter Horse named Wilma, but “I Wanna Little Wilson” is her registered name. She has recently purchased a Percheron named Tom that is boarded at the stable! Aimee enjoys riding English and works very hard to be part of our counseling crew. Aimee is a Certified Dog Groomer and works at Sitting Pretty in Chaumont, New York.
Julie White is Debby and Martin’s daughter and is a familiar face to past campers.

During the Summer of 2017 Julie was able to rejoin us for portions of the camp week due to her relocation back to Cape Vincent and working in an administrative role as a Supervisor of Professional and Program Development at Jefferson-Lewis BOCES. Julie owns two horses that reside at camp all year.
