Meet the Brant Lake Camp Directors

Through Four Generations and over 100 years of private ownership, Brant Lake Camp has always taken pride in being a place - "Where Sports Are Done Right"

Supporting the single family ownership of Brant Lake Camp are five directors who have all spent much of their lives at BLC. Led by executive director Rich Gersten, our other directors include, Max Gersten and Andy Berlin as well as Bob Gersten (Emeritus) and Karen Gerstenzang Meltzer (Emeritus).

All five devote their professional lives to making Brant Lake Camp a safe, fun and exciting place. Each director is responsible for supervising different, but crucial, aspects of camp. Furthermore, our Directors often support or lead instruction periods and have over 100 years, themselves, of coaching experience.
