Camp Staff Biographies
A full list of Camp Central Staff and their biographies will be updated soon, but here are our staff that will be at Camp Central for the 2014 season.
Alicia Frumenti, Camp Director (Pez)
My name is Pez and I love Camp Central. This will be my 9th summer working for the City of San Ramon and my 3rd year as Camp Director at Camp Central! I just earned my Special Education Teaching Credential at Saint Mary's College, and will have my own classroom this upcoming fall. My favorite part about camp is seeing campers make memories, and of course making lots of friendships bracelets. This is going to be a great summer!
Adam Vignaroli (Rolo)
I attend the University of Michigan and am entering my second summer at camp. I am so excited to work with kids again this summer and have fun in the sun while leading Adventure Club. I have led Vacation Bible School as well as science classes in Uganda, but nothing rivals the joy of working with the Camp Central family and all the amazing campers. I love to play volleyball and golf and frequently enjoy a nice crossword puzzle. I look forward to a fabulous summer and will see you all on the new patio.
Anastasia Kastanoff (Abba Zabba)
This will be my second year at Camp Central and I can't wait! I'm currently attending DVC and hope to become a Special Ed Teacher! I have a very strong passion for kids and their dreams. For the past four years I have done work relating to kids. I'm excited to be working here again and can't wait to make even more memories! Summer is the best time of year and camp just makes it better! Summer 2014 will be one to remember!
Andrew Moore (Sour Patch)
My name is Sour Patch, and this will be my third summer at Camp Central. I am in college at CSU Monterey Bay. My degree will be in education, and I want to teach high school technology or math. I love books and can read for hours at a time. My favorite activities at camp are the arts and crafts, but I love the water balloons and other water games we play. Our themes this year are going to be super fun and I am excited for every single week. I love camp and know this will be our best year yet!
Brandon DeLuna (Bertie Botts)
If you’re not at Camp Central right now then you’re in the wrong place! Camp Central is the most awesome place on Earth! I love being a camp counselor here and seeing smiling faces every day. This is my second summer here at Camp Central and I’m going to make this the best one yet. Right now I currently attend DVC and plan on attending UC Davis in the fall of 2015. I love being active and you can often find me outdoors playing sports or volunteering throughout our amazing community. My goal at camp is to make everyone feel welcome and part of a team. If I can turn one sad face into a happy face that’s more than enough for me. Go Camp Central!
Dominic Shortridge (Reeses)
The summer camps are my favorite place to be! I am currently majoring in Elementary Education, and all the time I have spent working at the San Ramon camps has greatly influenced that decision. It is truly my main goal to make sure that the environment of the camps is safe, and each camper is having as much as humanly possible. During my free time I enjoy coaching different sports teams, playing my Ukulele, and drawing.
Emily Lum (Pop Rocks)
This will be my second year here at Camp Central and I can't wait to start! Making new friends & being outdoors are by far my favorite things about camp. But I think the best thing is getting to work with kids- getting to know their own personalities and to help them grow even more! Being a camper and counselor has made some of my best memories. I will be a Senior at Dougherty Valley High School and I'm eager to see what next year brings. And I hope that one day I can become an engineer. I love to go swimming, hang out with friends and of course be a camp counselor! Let's make this summer the best one yet!
Erin Fox (Kit Kat)
I'm about to be a senior at Cal High and am excited to be working at Camp Central for the first time! I moved to San Ramon last August from New Jersey, where I spent many summers both attending and working at Girl Scout Day Camps. One of my favorite parts of camp is learning and teaching great games and silly songs. During the school year, I run on the Cross Country and Track teams and am also involved with the San Ramon Teen Council. I also love all types of music and have played the cello (like a giant violin) for 8 years. I'm looking forward to meeting all of the campers and having an AWESOME summer!
Jacob Molieri (Peeps)
I'm 16 years old and a proud student at San Ramon Valley High School. I strive for A's and for the highest in life so I always try my best. I love animals a lot. I like to thing I am rather unique due to me owning around 25 pets, some of them being very exotic like geckos and snakes. I love all my pets and I volunteer at Lindsay Wildlife Museum in Walnut Creek. I love working with people and I'm excited for camp this summer.
Jessica Gonsalves (Gummy Bear)
I'm 17 years old and I am going to be a Senior next year at Cal High. I love to play water polo, and swim. I have played on Cal's Varsity water polo team for the past two years, and swim on Cal's JV Swim Team. When I was younger I participated and went to all of the summer camps through the City of San Ramon and it was one of my favorite parts about summer! I always wanted to eventually become that camp counselor who I looked up to when I was a little kid. This is my second year working at Camp Central, and I have worked at other day camps in the past summers such as Diablo Girl Scout Day Camp and Vacation Bible School at St. Joan of Arc. I love working with kids and being involved with summer camps! I am so excited to meet all of the campers and have tons of FUN this summer!
Joy McCreary (Starburt)
Hi I'm Starburst! I am an energetic, bubbly and positive person, who is counting down the days until camp! I can't wait to sing songs, do crafts, play games and make our campers' experiences exciting and memorable. I am a Junior at California High School who loves to play volleyball, hike, climb and be outdoors. I've been involved with the Youth to Youth Conference since sixth grade and for the past two years as staff at the event. I'm outgoing and always happy! In my free time I enjoy playing my ukulele, being crafty, tie dying and hanging out with my friends. I love cats and the color green!
Katie Miyakado (Sweet Tart)
Camp Central is the best place to find sunshine and smiles all day long! This is one of my favorite places and I’m so excited for camp this year! At camp I enjoy playing games, doing arts and crafts, and cooking with the kids. When I’m not playing in the sun in the summer time I go to school at Gonzaga University in Washington. I love the outdoors, staying active, and hanging out with friends. I can’t wait for camp to start and I hope that I can help make this summer the best one yet!
Matthew Bluestein (Mike & Ikes)
My name is Matthew Bluestein and I love fitness and the outdoors. In my free time I enjoy long boarding, working out, and playing pick-up sports with my friends. I also love the beach! I enjoy spending time with kids and tutor a 7th grader twice a week. I am going to be a freshman at Cal Poly SLO in September.
Melanie Olling (Jolly Rancher)
My name is Jolly Rancher and I just graduated from Monte Vista. This is my third year here at Camp Central and I couldn't be happier. I look forward to having fun with your kids and helping them learn about the world around them. Here's to a great summer!
Mia Vaughn (Milky Way)
I'm so excited to start my second summer working at Camp Central and meet all the amazing campers! This will be my second year as an official counselor for Camp Central. I love the atmosphere of camp, and working with kids is a huge passion of mine. At camp, I always have so much fun making cool crafts, playing games, and interacting with all the wonderful campers. I love to dance and travel to new and exciting places in my free time. I am going to be a senior at California High School this upcoming year, and hope to later become a pediatrician. I know this summer is going to be amazing and I can't wait to jump right in!
Sarah Mori (Pixie Stix)
Hello my name is Pixie Stix I am currently a college student down in Southern California studying Public Relations and Advertising. This is my second year working with the San Ramon Community Center and I couldn't be more excited. During my breaks, I enjoy spending time in my Mom's Kindergarten classroom but when I am in school I enjoying spending my spare at the Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland. At first glance I may look like a camper, but remember, good things come in small packages.
