Dylan Warren - Camp Director​

​A member of our team since 2016, Dylan has grown with us from Head Coach to Camp Director. He fell in love with camping and the experiences it offers during his time as an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America. Having graduated from Montclair State University in 2020 with a B.S. in Biological Sciences, Dylan continued his education at Monmouth Univeristy where he recently graduated with a Master's Degree in Teaching! He teaches Environmental Science and Egnineering at nearby Matawan Regional High School (where some of our junior coaches attend!). What he enjoys most about camp is that it is a place where campers and coaches can truly be themselves and have endless amounts of fun all while making meaningful and lifelong friendships.
