MEET OUR 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.

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.”
Jeff Fiore ’08, Aquatics Coordinator
Jeff Fiore joined the Camp Christopher team in 2019 after six years as aquatics director at Charles River Aquatics in Boston. “I’ve really enjoy working with kids in the pool. I’m all about making it fun, and they always make me laugh during the process, too,” says the Peabody native. At St. John’s, he set new school records in the 200 and 400 free relay before going on to the University of Tampa, where he was a NCAA Qualifier in the 200 free and 200 IM. When he’s not in the pool or at the beach, you can find him taking his dog, Rocko, on fun adventures.
