Damon Redden
Damon ReddenDirector of the CIT program
This will be my 10th year at Camp Squankum. I am currently the Director of our CIT program. I attended Temple University as an undergrad and majored in Secondary English Education. I have also earned master’s degree in the art of teaching. I have been a resident of Monroe Township since the summer of 2001 and have taught English at Williamstown High School since 2005. I love Camp Squankum for the same reasons I love teaching. The difficult times at camp and school can be overwhelming and discouraging, but the good times are so good, I could not imagine doing anything else. I love to eat; therefore, I work hard at the gym to balance my weight. I love to work out in order to challenge myself and I like to work out in groups to experience the struggle with others. My favorite color is blue which works well with my employment at WHS.

I just finished my junior year as a secondary education major with Math concentration.
