Meet the Staff

Continuity of staff is key for any camp. Our leadership team boasts over 75 years of Netop experience and 85 percent of our staff are returns from a previous summer at Netop. Counselors are carefully selected based on their character, commitment and ability to serve as positive role models and work hand-in-hand with directors during the summer to plan and carry out the program. Our leadership model provides just the right balance of experience, enthusiasm and counselor engagement to keep the program fresh and our staff coming back year after year.

Leadership Team

Steve Hallowell, Owner/Director
Steve began his Netop experience back in 1968. He spent 10 summers: 6 as a camper, 4 as a staff member. After 25 years managing corporate business operations in the U.S. and Europe, Steve and his wife Beth assumed ownership of the camp in 2005 with their three children: Tim, Andrew, and Sarah. Netop had a strong positive impact on Steve growing up and he enjoys providing that same life experience to new generations of campers. Steve and Beth grew up in the Philadelphia area and live in Maple Glen, PA during the off season. Steve attained a B.S. degree from Washington & Lee University and a Masters degree from Babson College.

Rebecca Baumgardner (school nurse in PA) and Mimi Gallo (nurse practitioner in Boston, MA) provide healthcare coverage at Netop during the summer.
