Meet the Staff

Eli Ruben

Group 6

Proving the success of our overall program, Eli Ruben has progressed through the gamut of the ultimate Summer’s Edge experience.  He was a camper, completed both the C.I.T. I and II levels, served the rank of junior counselor, and is beginning his fourth season as a counselor. As a graduate of Lexington High School, Eli finished his junior year this spring at Skidmore College, where he majors in business and completed his Spanish minor this past year.  About leading adventure fitness, Eli says, “I love watching campers’ faces light up every week when I think of something new for the campers to do during that period.”  The next time Eli gets the opportunity to speak with Ted the Bear, he plans on issuing the caveat, “Stop drinking the pool water!” Eli’s zeal for all things camp makes him an outstanding contributor to all campers’ summer journeys.
