Camp Owners & Directors: Ann and Nat Greenfield
Ann and Nat Greenfield have been the owners and directors of Camp Robindel since 1977. Camping runs deep in each of their families, and is what drew them to one another. They are members of The American Camp Association’s Pioneers of Camping Club, which recognizes directors who have been in camping for at least 30 years.
Ann is a mother and an educator who taught in both public and private schools. She was a camper and counselor for many years and went on to be the president of Golden Slipper Women, a Philadelphia philanthropic camping organization. She has two advanced degrees: An M.S. in Educational Media from the Annenberg School of Media & Communication at Temple University and an M.S. in Reading from Arcadia University (Beaver College) in Glenside, Pennsylvania.
Nat spent 18 consecutive summers as a camper and counselor. He is a non-practicing attorney, having always known that his real passion lie in camping. He earned a B.S. in Accounting from The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania and a J.D. from Penn Law at The University of Pennsylvania.
Ann and Nat combine to fill the role of head counselor. Ann is involved with all campers on a daily basis and is there to nurture and support them. Nat is famous for his “Nat Chats” with campers who love to stop by the office to say hello. When campers visit Robindel after their final summer, their first stop is often the couch in Nat’s office. Nat also oversees the management of the staff and daily program.

Carol has been part of the Robindel team since 1987. She has been friends with Ann and Nat since the 1970s and sent her oldest daughter to Robindel the first chance she got. After two years of visiting, she knew that she had to stay. Carol is in charge of the office both in Pennsylvania and New Hampshire and she keeps us all organized! During the winter she lives in Merion Pennsylvania with her husband Richard. Her daughters Bess and Lauren live nearby, and her son Matthew lives in NY. Also known as “CC”, Carol is very excited to be a grandmother to Teddy, her two-year-old grandson. Carol can be emailed at email@example.com
