Ben Savin is thrilled to be entering his first summer as Camp Butwin Director, and 16th summer at Camp Butwin. Ben has previously served the JCC community in a variety of roles, including Camp Butwin Assistant Director, JCC Maccabi Delegation Head, Youth Programs Coordinator, and most recently Early Childhood Assistant Director. Ben holds a degree in English and Education, summa cum laude, from Hamline University, and is a graduate of JCC Association of North America’s highly selective Merrin Fellowship for youth work professionals. Ben believes that the real work of being a kid happens during the summer months, and that camp provides the venue for developing self-confidence, exploring new interests, and taking pride in being one’s self, all while fostering a love for the outdoors. In his spare time, Ben enjoys playing guitar, trying new foods, and exploring the Twin Cities by bike.
