Meet the Directors
Howard Salzberg and Lisa Wulkan are the full-time Directors of Camp Modin. Ultimately, all responsibilities relating to Camp Modin fall to them. Howard first began his camping "career" at age nine when he first came to Modin and joined the "Beavers bunk." He was a camper for seven years. After that, he joined the Modin staff as a counselor, and then Head Counselor. Working closely with the owners, on a full-time basis, Howard was promoted to the position of Assistant Director. In 1991, Howard became the full time Director of Camp Modin and eventually purchased the camp in November of 1992. Howard's combined camping experience, both as a camper and staff member add up to almost thirty years. His family was part of the first Modin enrollment class dating back to 1922.
Lisa joined Modin in 1991, where she first met, and later married, Howard. She began her Modin "career" first as a Counselor, then as a Head Counselor, Assistant Director and finally, Director. Her background is in elementary education and she has taught first, fourth and fifth graders.
Together, they are responsible for all administrative functions, staff development and the well being of the entire community. They know each and every camper personally and spend the bulk of their time with the kids-at meals, on the waterfront, at campfires, reading stories, etc. They like to operate "out in the field" and not behind closed doors. Their mission is to provide children with a healthy, safe and memorable summer experience. Lisa and Howard are the proud parents of a son named Jack.
