Zachary Bergman has spent many years in camping. He grew up attending Camp Green Lane as both a camper and a counselor. Zach received great recognition and many honors during his years at Green Lane that demonstrated his commitment to camp and the campers he cared for. After graduating from The Ohio State University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a specialization in Accounting, Zach started his professional career at Deloitte. Zach received his CPA certification while simultaneously working during his second year at the firm. Zach rose through the ranks at Deloitte becoming a senior accountant, auditing large financial institutions. After 3 years at Deloitte, Zach continued his professional career in accounting with Lazard as a financial accountant. Zach spent about 2 years at Lazard before deciding it was time to follow his passions and start full time in camping.
After the passing of his father in 2014, Zach became involved in a non-profit organization called Experience Camps. Experience Camps is a one-week bereavement camp for children who have lost a primary caregiver or a close relative. During the inaugural summer for the North East location Zach served as a counselor volunteer. Zach’s passion for camp and helping kids was reignited after his first summer volunteering. During the following year Zach became heavily involved in the year-round planning and worked closely with both the camp director and the board of directors to help with organizational initiatives for Experience Camps. In his third year with the organization, Zach became a part of the Regional Advisory Counsel and a unit leader for the oldest boys in camp. Through his expanded network at Experience Camps, Zach was introduced to Adam, Sheryl and Richie. Zach is now turning his passions into a career as he is welcomed as Camp Equinunk’s new Assistant Director! We cannot wait for you and your children to meet Zach and get to know him this summer. His warmth, character and passion for the camp experience is right in line with who we are at Equinunk and Blue Ridge, and we could not be happier for Zach to join our year-round team.
