Owen Ross
Closter Camp, Staff Counselor

I have worked at Palisades since 2011. I begin as a lifeguard for six years and have taught private swim lessons after camp. In 2017, I became the Head Aquatics Director and oversee all of the pools.

I am currently attending Springfield College and plan on Graduating with a degree in Math and Secondary Education. I am a member of the Track and Cross Country Teams at school. I love the beach, exercise and most importantly Summers at Palisades Country Day Camp!

The experience at Palisades has been nothing but excellent. I love being able to put a smile on a camper’s face, being there to experience their first time swimming, and most importantly waking up everyday and going to place to work where I can call home and be around people I can consider my second family.
