Patti Roberts | Director of Student Summers


For over 20 years Patti Roberts and the Student Summers team have traveled across the world each summer visiting Camps, traveling with Teen Tours, College Programs, Bike and Wilderness Trips, and visiting sites where teenagers are building houses for low-income families. Their goal for these trips is to not only understand each program, but to determine what type of child's needs will best be met in the particular program and who will be happy there. The Camp Lady® believes that there is a right camp for every child but that every camp is not right for every child. Patti and the Student Summers team have helped thousands of families choose the best program to ensure their children have a fun, safe and happy summer. You don't have to do the work, The Camp Lady can help.
