Yomi Seniors Welcome from Director

Dear Yomi Seniors Families,

For those families who I have not had the pleasure of meeting, my name is Emily Bencosme and I am super excited to be the Director of Yomi Seniors this summer. I am thrilled to be working with many families from past summers and to meet all the new families joining our camp. The exciting part of Yomi Seniors is the sense of adventure with the trips we take; varying from white water rafting to the high flying ropes courses in Adventure Park to our week long sleep away in Nah-Jee-Wah.

During the year, I am a Pre-K teacher at the St. Lucy’s School, where I have worked for the past 4 1/2 years.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts from Hunter College. As for my camp career, I began my journey as a counselor in Unit 3, then as Programming Head Counselor in Unit 4, then as Yomi Seniors Unit Supervisor, and now have the privilege of returning as a Yomi Seniors Director for summer 2018.

Please remember to update and complete the medical forms for your camper by May 15th to ensure campers are ready for the summer. I will be periodically posting on the Parent Portal throughout the spring, so please check back for updates and additional information. Should you have a specific question or wish to contact me, I can be reached at yomiseniors@92Y.org.

Have a wonderful rest of the school year and I look forwarding to meeting each of you soon.

I look forward to meeting all new families at our new family picnic on Sunday, June 10th. For more details about this event, check out the flyer in the documents section. For more information please call the camps office at 212.415.5573 or email campmail@92y.org.

I look forward to meeting all of you at our parent night on Wednesday, June 20th at 7 pm. Parent Night is an opportunity to meet your camper’s counselors, other campers and learn more about the program.

As your children prepare to embark on the journey into middle school, I feel honored to join them in my 8th summer at camp. I cannot wait to travel to new places, make amazing memories, and have endless laughs with many new and familiar faces!

Best,
Emily Bencosme
Yomi Seniors Director
