Leadership Team

Laura “Lou” McKenna

Director of Camp Gottalikachallenge

Lou started as a Gotta Staffer in 1999, and became the Director in 2016. Camp is her absolute favorite place to be. Under Lou’s direction, Gotta Camp has expanded to a year-round pursuit, planning for sessions and bringing together the amazing campers and staffers to make it happen!
When she’s not at camp, she lives in Burlington, VT where she runs a digital marketing firm, and loves spending time in her garden.

Jake Oudheusden

Assistant Director

Jake has been a Gotta Staffer since 2015, and serves as Assistant Director for Overnight and Day Camps. This includes wrangling supplies, recruiting campers, and supporting the in-session day to day activities. Jake’s undergraduate degree is in outdoor education and leadership – he’s built for camp! He’s also very involved in New Hampshire Destination Imagination as the Alum Co-Chair for the state.
When he’s not at Gotta Camp, he loves spending time with his very good dog Molly Moon.

Jaime Gratton

Assistant Director

Jaime has been a Gotta Staffer since 2009, and served as Overnight Camp Assistant Director starting in 2016. In this role, Jaime works closely with Lou to make sure everything is ready for our staffers and campers. A veteran science teacher and self-proclaimed science nerd, Jaime is excited to share her expertise with campers every summer!
Her 18 years of track & field coaching along with her very active 5-year old son keep her in tip-top condition to make camp run smoothly!
