Lansman's Day Camp, Where Memories Are Made

Our Senior Staff

Maxxe Baker Schecter

Camp Director

Maxxe has always been a “camp person”. She began going to camp at Winston Day Camp at the age of 3 and was a camper there until the age of 14. After that, she attended a sleep-away camp where she rose through the ranks of camper, waitress, CIT, counselor and then lifeguard. With time, she was given the leadership role as girls’ side group leader and now has finally been given the opportunity she always dreamed of; being a Camp Director. She’s a fun-spirited person and always brings a smile to our campers and staff. She ensures a great summer for all our Lansman’s campers and is excited to bring many new ideas and improvements to the camp.

Maxxe holds 2 Master’s Degrees in Education. She is certified as both an Early Childhood and Childhood Special Education teacher for children ages’ birth through grade 6. She was married this past October and lives with her husband in Brooklyn, New York where she works for the New York City Department of Education as a second grade teacher. Although a Brooklyn girl, she is dedicated to spending her summers upstate in her White Lake residence. Camp will always hold a special place in her heart!

Nicole has been a part of Lansman's Day Camp every summer for the past 16 years. She started coming to Lansman's as a camper when she was five years old, became a counselor at age 15 and has worked at the camp every summer since.

Nicole hopes to help make this summer the best one yet!
