Jackie Kaminsky

Director of Camps

“We need to keep the future in mind.  Trends are constantly changing, how can we make sure buildings and spaces are built to last?”


Jackie is not afraid of complex tasks. Supportive, optimistic, and patient, she tackles challenges enthusiastically and aligns herself with the client’s vision. 

As Director of Camps, Jackie actively encourages others to be involved in the planning process and helps clients see new opportunities they may not have thought of. She’s a big proponent of the old adage “two heads are better than one” — and believes the design process should always be a collaborative effort.


Jackie is passionate about designing outdoor spaces that create a sense of community. She is an invaluable project manager, with over 15 years of experience in Camp & Retreat Center design. As a deeply respected collaborator with key camp staff professionals, stakeholders and consultants, Jackie’s responsibilities include Master Planning, Camp Design, Landscape Architecture, Graphics, Business Development and Project Management. 


You’ll rarely see Jackie without a smile on her face—she’s always willing to step in and help others, no matter what the task.
