Aryn Barer, LMSW
Aryn graduated from Tufts University with a Bachelor of Arts in Child Development and received her Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University. Aryn has been bringing her high energy and enthusiasm to NJY Camps for 8 years and has been in camping both as a camper and staff member since she was a child. Prior to becoming the Director of Round Lake Camp, Aryn worked as a school social worker, allowing her to spend 6 summers as Head of Sports in the day camp setting and 5 seasons as the Athletic Director at Nah-Jee-Wah. Additionally, Aryn was part of the Round Lake team as she met campers and their families to assess camper’s needs, to complete intakes during the school year and consulted with the leadership during the summer. As The Director of RLC, Aryn brings together her love of camp with her passion for helping others. She feels privileged to guide the innovative inclusion model RLC offers, as it provides a program unique to the camping world.
Aryn loves living her summers in the camp setting surrounded by the outdoors and activities! She resides in Westchester, NY with her husband Ken and her three children—all of whom have grown up at NJY Camps.
