Meet our Team | Camp Twin Creeks

Meet our Team

Meet our off-season team and get to know everybody!

This team is the true difference maker throughout the year and during each summer.  With a combination of 70+ summers of Camp Twin Creeks experience and a background of excellence from other great camping and outdoor institutions, Amy and Iain are proud to work alongside these inspiring individuals!

Our next Parent ZOOM Q&A is Wednesday May 25th at 7pm; RSVP by email for the ZOOM link.

Amy McClements – Director
At camp since 2001, Amy is Mother to Harrison, Finnley and Blake.
With her Masters in Education and as the business owner of a Kindergarten Enrichment Program, Amy provides us with a wealth of child oriented knowledge.
Amy is also the driving force behind our Nature programs and loves leading campers on hikes through the National Forest!
Iain McClements – Director
At camp since 2001, Iain works full time with Camp and is Father to Harrison, Finnley and Blake.  With a Bachelors degree in Hospitality and 25 summers of camp experience, Iain truly loves camping and what it provides to children at Camp each summer.
Iain coaches youth soccer at many levels in his spare time and also loves to run, cook, eat and entertain!

Brian Babauta – Environmental Education Director and Staffing
Originally from beautiful Guam, followed by a stint in Southern California, Brian has been in the camp world since 2004, and Environmental Education since 2007.  Prior to that you could find him teaching in a high school History classroom or coaching students in both Football and Wrestling.  Graduating with a BA in History and an MS in Recreation Administration, Brian is an outdoor fanatic, loves paddling trips, backpacking, and can’t leave the house on Saturdays during College Football Season for fear he might miss something.

Hannah Schacht – Head of Community
Hannah started at Camp Twin Creeks as a camper in 2010 and joined the seasonal staff in 2017. Graduating with dual bachelors degrees in Global Liberal Studies and Spanish, Hannah has a passion for human rights and children’s rights. Her experience growing up at Twin Creeks both as a camper and staff member situates her as a great resource for campers, parents, staff, and alumni as the Head of Community.

Katie Powers Burgmeier – Summer Director
Katie (AKA Powers!) has been an invaluable part of Girls Main Village for the past 10 summers.  She graduated from ASU with a BA in Elementary Education.  While originally from Arizona, she has enjoyed many unique teaching experiences in recent years!  Be it tutoring on a ship around the world, in an RV across the USA or at a play based preschool in Philadelphia, Katie has always had a passion for working with children and being outdoors.  When Katie is not at camp you can find her watching a Diamondbacks baseball game or in the mountains skiing!

Colleen Strzelec – Winter Admin
Colleen is new to the team in 2022 but not new to Camp Twin Creeks! Her family has been a part of our family sessions for the past 6+ years and her children have also recently attended camp on their own. Colleen’s originally from NYC, spent a few years in VA in the beautiful Roanoke Valley and Richmond-DC area where she also went to VCU School of the Arts.
Now residing on the outskirts of Philadelphia, she spends most of her time shuttling her 4 kids (Evan, Luke, Maddy & Jake) and working part-time …but her favorite activities involve getting dirt under her nails in the garden and paint on her overalls creating new pieces!

Chloë McClements
Where to begin?  Chloë, a Hungarian Vizsla by birth, dominates the summer terrain of Camp Twin Creeks and is often seen running up and down the many acres of camp.  You can also find her chasing Mountain Bikes for several hours everyday before collapsing in an exhausted heap.  Chloë also serves as our official homesickness prevention pet for those campers that might be missing their 4-legged friends from home.

Ember McClements
Our newest addition, Ember has been with us since August 2021 and is excited to be at Camp in 2022.  Another Vizsla, to keep Chloë company, we’re all excited to see what kind of trouble and mischief Ember gets into.  Be sure to keep your cabins and porches tidy or you’re likely to find a flip flop or cap on the other side of camp with Ember next to it 🙂
