Summer Camp Directors and Staff
At Camp Olympia our quality leadership begins at the top. Our director, Stephen Benedek, and his wife, Elizabeth, have both been involved in athletics all of their lives including teaching physical education from elementary through university levels, competing at the national level in a variety of sports, coaching at the Olympic level, and an induction into the Georgetown Athletic Hall of Fame. This quality leadership has been the driving force behind our successful program.
