Meet the Owners

Mitchell and Michelle Kessler are the proud owners of Spring Lake Day Camp. Spring Lake has been family owned and operated by the Kessler family since 1989, making this their 30th anniversary summer. Having the advantage of being born into a camp family, Mitchell knew that SLDC was the place that could create a magical feeling of community, spirit and well-being. He has been able to use his experience and education to create what he believes is the best day camp in the entire world!

Mitchell holds a B.A. in Economics from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, and a Master of Architecture degree from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture. He puts his degree to work by designing all of our beautiful structures around camp. Michelle holds a B.A. in Psychology from New York University and a M.A. in Guidance Counseling from Hunter College. Before embarking on the wonderful journey of camp, Michelle was a teacher and then a Guidance Counselor in Manhattan. Mitchell and Michelle share their passion for camp with their two wonderful boys, Max and Michael.

"We look forward to spending the summer outside interacting with the kids and staff. We work ten months to get ready for two. The best part is getting to know the campers on an individual basis."
