Wendy Smith, Assistant Director of Summer and Auxiliary Programs
Wendy’s 20 years of experience as Assistant Director make her especially knowledgeable about Summer@Potomac! She oversees all camper enrollment and manages the camper accounts. Wendy is happy to help families through the registration process. What would my 3rd grader enjoy doing at camp? How soon do I need to register? What is the camp day like? She fields these questions and many more with expertise, and remains in contact with registered families throughout the camp season and all year. She particularly enjoys seeing campers grow up to become camp counselors and teachers!
