Ryan Bird

Director of Auxiliary

Ryan Bird oversees all of the EAGLES/EDGE programs. A hands-on leader with coaching experience at the youth, high school and college levels, he likes to create opportunities for young people to try new adventures and improve their skills. “Knowing that you can impact their lives in those important developmental years is very rewarding,” says the North Andover native and University of Maine graduate. He’s always up for a game of pick-up basketball with his son, and loves spending time with his family, working out, and hiking with his dog.

Laurel Grady

Assistant Director of Auxiliary Programs

Laurel Grady has joined the EAGLES/EDGE family as the new assistant director of auxiliary programs, concentrating on Camp Christopher day camp and enrichment opportunities. Ms. Grady comes to Camp Christopher with more than 25 years of making camp magic happen for children. And, here’s a fun fact for you! Ms. Grady worked for Semester at Sea and took 650 college students by ship around the world, visiting nine countries in four months.

“I am thrilled to join the EAGLES/EDGE team at St. John’s Prep,” said Ms. Grady. “I am looking forward to continuing the tradition of providing quality summer programs to campers of all ages, and I am eager to bring new ideas and activities to our already excellent program.”

Camp Christopher Team

Summer Day Camp Staff

Camp Staff

Our staff includes teachers, graduate students, and college students, many of whom are pursuing degrees in education, as well as high school students. All staff are carefully screened through a process of interviews, reference verifications, and background checks. All staff attend pre-camp training and meetings. A registered nurse is on duty during regular camp hours. The nurse oversees medication required by campers and contacts parents if a child becomes ill during the camp day.
