Island Lake is a family-owned and operated camp established by Bev and Mike Stoltz in 1986. This husband and wife team have more than forty years experience working with children as teachers and supervisors. Bev has a master's degree and Mike has a master's degree and an advanced graduate degree in supervision and administration.
Matt Stoltz and Wendy Stravitz, brother and sister, each joined the family business on a full time basis after completing college. They grew up attending camp starting as toddlers, gained experience in many different aspects of camping throughout their summers at Island Lake, and ultimately achieved their goals of becoming camp directors. Matt's background in engineering and Wendy's degree in communications have been invaluable in their careers working with children.
Bev, Mike, Matt and Wendy spend their summers at Island Lake, interacting with campers, parents, and staff. "We pride ourselves in our involvement with all of our children and staff. We set the tone of a warm, friendly atmosphere where nurturing our campers is our first priority. Our goal is to provide a setting that encourages the personal growth of each child as an integral part of the camp community."
