Matt Frankel and Mike Green met at camp in 1983 and they’ve been friends ever since.
After college, graduate schools and jobs in the corporate world, they decided to buy a camp in 2009. Together – along with 150 of the best staff members you’ll ever see – they run Briarwood Day Camp.
Mike and Matt want kids to experience the same great things that they did at camp – fun, friends, excitement, adventure, great counselors and the feeling of not being able to wait until the next day of camp.
Anne Witkin is Briarwood’s Associate Director, Busy Bee Director and Coordinator of Just About Everything That Is Awesome at Briarwood. A lifelong camper, Anne’s professional background is in education and she taught reading in the Council Rock School District for 12 years. She now holds a National Directors Credential for Early Childhood Leadership.
Anne has been at Briarwood since 1996. She has run our Busy Bee program for three to five year olds since 1999 and loves to watch “her” kids grow to be lower campers, upper campers, CITs and staff! In the offseason (and sometimes during off hours in the summer), you’ll find Anne planning our summer trips, leading camper play dates, coordinating camper health forms and doing anything and everything that helps Briarwood run so smoothly and allow us to provide children with summers that they’ll never forget.
