Meet the Year-Round Mowglis Team

It Takes a Village to Raise a Cub

To answer the question you’re likely asking yourself — “Who are the grown-ups in charge of this place?” — let me introduce you to the Camp Mowglis team.

Wait, where are my manners? I really should introduce myself first, shouldn’t I?

Executive Director & Camp Director — Nick Robbins

Hi, I’m Nick. Dad, husband, teacher, nature lover, ski patroller, philosophy geek, lifelong “camp guy”, and Director here at Camp Mowglis.

I’ve always loved the outdoors, teaching folks about the outdoors, working with people, and thinking about life’s big questions. After graduating from the Colorado College with a Philosophy degree, I sought a career that would involve my dual passions for outdoor education and emergency medicine, which led me to become the camp Emergency Medical Technician at another excellent New Hampshire summer camp in 2002. Life works in mysterious ways, and I spent eleven years at that camp, cutting my teeth in the industry and learning the ins and outs of running a successful camp. I worked my way up, first to Assistant Director, and then to year-round Camp Director, a position I held from 2005 to 2013.

After a decade of helping that program grow exponentially, I was ready for more. I wanted a smaller, mission-driven camp that was more outdoorsy and had deeper ties to youth development. I wanted something that really stirred my soul. When I found Camp Mowglis, I knew it was The One instantly. I’ve been the Camp Director here since 2013.

In addition to being Director of Mowglis, I’m an Accreditation Visitor for the American Camp Association which means that I visit other camps during their operating season to make sure they’re following all the industry best practices for health and safety. I sit on the boards of the New Hampshire Camp Directors Association as well as the American Camp Association’s New England Chapter; during the winter I maintain an active role with the National Ski Patrol as a certified Outdoor Emergency Care Provider. I also have a significant emergency medical background (former EMT) and have led wilderness trips for all ages of kids and teens throughout the country and abroad.

I’m not one of those Camp Directors who lurks in the office. I’m always out around camp and I’ll personally know your son and vice versa. I’m a dad too. I get safety concerns, worries about fitting in, homesickness, all of it. I strive to be the kind of Camp Director I would want looking out for my kids.

That’s why I work very closely with our camp families before, during, and after the summer. We both want the same thing: a positive environment to teach your son to be a great man — and have a ton of fun along the way.

I was very impressed with how personalized our experience was. We received personal letters that reassured us that our son was being well taken care of and that he was being worked with and treated as an individual, not just another kid in the group. – Benjamin Millett (Mowglis dad)

If you’re curious about whether Camp Mowglis is the right fit for your son, contact me anytime at [email protected]. I’m here all year and I have an open door (and inbox) policy. Even if Mowglis isn’t the right fit (because it’s not for everyone) I’ll give you some great alternatives that are a better match.

Assistant Director, Scheduler& Food Service Manager — Diana Robbins

No, Diana’s last name isn’t a coincidence. And yes, we have one of those classic camp love stories!

Diana is originally from Timisoara, Romania, and has been a year-round camp program administrator and foodservice professional since 2001. We met at camp, fell in love at camp, and now are raising our three kids — Lizzie, Dru, and Juniper  — at camp. Suffice it to say, we wholeheartedly believe in the transformative power of this place!

As the camp scheduler, Diana works with the campers and staff to organize everybody’s time at camp. Thanks to her, we always know where everyone is, and make sure that all the bases are covered!

With our nature-first focus at Camp Mowglis, good food is very important to us. Diana works with local producers to keep what’s on our plates as close to nature as possible. We look for organic ingredients whenever possible from farmers who use sustainable and humane practices.

She makes sure the boys are fueling their bodies with good nutrition to get through long hikes and challenging crew races on the water. And, of course, she makes sure our food tastes great, too!

For any dietary concerns or questions about our food, contact Diana at [email protected].

Associate Director & Property Manager– Tommy Greenwell

Tommy’s been part of the Mowglis family for over 20 years! He started in 1993 as a cub and has only missed a handful of summers since. (Tommy’s claim to fame is that he hasn’t missed a single Crew Day – the big end of summer crew rega since 1993!)

In addition to wearing various hats at Camp Mowglis through the decades — dorm counselor, Tripmaster, Yearling Program leader, Assistant Director — Tommy also brings years of outside experience to his current role of Associate Director. He holds a B.A. in Outdoor Education and Leadership from Sterling College, worked at The City Kids Wilderness Project in Wyoming, studied at the National Outdoor Leadership School, and worked as an environmental educator for the Don Lee Center in North Carolina.

Tommy lives here at Mowglis year round. You can reach him at [email protected].

Assistant Director & Director of Development – Jay Gulitti

Mowglis has a tendency to become a second home for so many who are lucky enough to spend a summer under the pines. Jay is one of those people – he started as a camper in 2002, and has found his way back every year since then. After graduating Den in 2006, he went on to join the counsel as a member of the Jr. Staff, Sr. Staff, and as a Lead Dorm Counselor, the Crew Coach, and the Watermaster – eventually becoming the Assistant Director in the summer of 2023.  In addition, he’s worked closely with the year-round team for the past several seasons, focused on staffing and other behind-the-scenes aspects of camp, and will be taking on a greater role in the Development department this winter.

While he spends his summers at Mowglis, Jay lives in Upstate New York during the rest of the year.  The biggest takeaways from his summers at camp are a love of the outdoors and a lifelong passion for music, and the Hudson Valley is a great place to celebrate both of those things.  Over the years, he has worked in outdoor education throughout New York, getting the opportunity to lead hikes, foster musical and artistic creativity, and help teach kids about the world around them.  All of this is due to his many seasons at Mowglis, and the lifelong friendships that started there.

Director of Alumni Relations & Summer Head of Maintenance

Bartolo (Coach G), attended Mowglis as a camper from 1976-1980 from cubs through Akela and recently returned to the hill as the Director of Maintenance for the 2023 season. After Mowglis, Bartolo spent two summers as a camper at Camp Pasquaney before joining the staff at Camp Mayhew to work for his father, Tony, founding director of the summer program for disadvantaged New Hampshire youth on Newfound Lake.
Coach G has spent the majority of his career as a collegiate and preparatory school lacrosse coach and administrator. Currently, he is a part-time men’s lacrosse coach at Plymouth State University. He received his B.A. in History from Siena College and was recently appointed Alumni Relations Associate at Mowglis.
“I am so fortunate and grateful for the opportunity to take on a larger role at Mowglis. It affords me the ability to marry my love of the outdoors and watersports with my passion for using athletics as a tool to teach life skills to the young men of the pack.”  – Bartolo.

Registrar — Holly Taylor

Holly joined Mowglis in 2009 as the administrative assistant to then-director Sam Punderson. She transitioned to the role of registrar under the directorship of Nick Robbins.  She has loved her experience working at  Mowglis.  Having grown up in a non-camping family, Mowglis has taught her the immense value of summer camp and its long-term effects on campers.

She currently resides in the Western Maine Mountains with her husband, Chris, and has two grown daughters, Lilli and Avery.  An avid animal lover, she considers her cat, dog, and chickens as part of her family.
