Meet Our Leadership

Keith VanDerzee


Keith arrived at Camp Mason in 2015, having previously directed YMCA resident camps and outdoor centers throughout New Jersey for more than 20 years. Keith’s Grandfather started a camp when Keith was just a child so camping has been a lifelong adventure for him.  To Keith, YMCA camp programs can change a life for the better and he puts everything he has into making sure that the camp experience is accessible for all, and can help all kids learn, grow and thrive. Keith lives in Blairstown with his wife, Brooke, and their two children, Jared and Aster who also love everything about camp!
