Stephanie MacLennan has been working at Camp Helen Keller for over 20 years, and has been the program director since 2011. She is a licensed clinical social worker and supervisor, and specializes in development, mental health, and behavior among children with special needs, specifically sensory loss. She works with campers and their families to ensure that the five weeks at camp are meaningful and beneficial to each child’s progress. During the academic year, Stephanie works as a school social worker, but Camp Helen Keller holds a special place in her heart. She is always looking to expand camp activities, go on new and exciting field trips, and grow the program. She keeps a countdown to the first day of camp; she’s just as excited as the kids to start each season!
