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. She loves everything involved in 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 has been a Gotta Staffer since 2015, and serves as Assistant Director for Overnight and Day Camps. This includes assisting in staff training and development, wrangling supplies, recruiting campers, and supporting the in-session day to day activities. Jake’s undergraduate degree is in outdoor education and leadership, and he has a Masters of Education – 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 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, and once we’re in session, that every camper feels safe and supported. A veteran science teacher and self-proclaimed science nerd, Jaime is excited to share her expertise with campers every summer!
Her 19 years of track & field coaching along with her very active 6-year old son keep her in tip-top condition to make camp run smoothly!
