MEET YOUR CAMP DIRECTORS
Sindie Dear, Class of 2005
Sindie is excited to put back on her Camp Director hat. She spent last summer directing an innovation camp for kids in Altadena and returned home to Ramona in the fall to teach Physics, AP Computer Science and moderate the Robotics Club. When she’s not wearing silly hats and socks at camp or fostering curiosity in her students, Sindie plays camp director to her two small kiddos Leona and Luke, and continues her flight training as a student pilot.
“I’m so excited to continue this wonderful adventure here with Camp Ramona. There’s nothing quite like the summers we spend as kiddos outside in the sunshine, and I’m looking forward to helping create those cherished memories with our campers and staff.”
Carly Lujan, Class of 2005
Carly is returning to Ramona Convent, as this year's Co-Camp Director.
Growing up a teacher's daughter, Carly has many years experience volunteering and tutoring in kindergarten classrooms. Over the last several years, her inner artist has led her to a career in Visual Merchandising, working for companies like Nordstroms, American Eagle Outfitters and Pottery Barn. Currently she resides in San Diego, CA but is over the moon to begin her summer residency back at Ramona.
"It's great to be back! Ramona is a really special place and it had such a positive influence on who I am today. This summer, I'm really looking forward to continuing to provide a fun, creative and expressive environment for our campers."

Remember the fun times of simpler days? Well, those days are back! Every day kids love exploring our campus trails, mastering scavenger hunts, and putting on talent shows. Each week is themed and filled with corresponding crafts, games and activities.
BIKING is a big part of Camp Ramona. Some Campers even learn to ride for the first time; while others are introduced to mountain biking. Our trails offer different levels of difficulty for all biking skill abilities. Children who would like to partake in riding can bring their own bikes to Camp where they will be stored in a secure location throughout their stay with us.
SWIMMING is an all-time favorite “cool” activity where our certified lifeguards and counselors keep a close eye on all our swimmers. The pool gradually slopes from shallow to deep with clear markings and floatation barriers that allow us to safely accommodate a variety of skill levels ranging from Beginner to Advanced. For non-swimmers or anyone just not in the mood for a dip, we always offer an array of fun activities in our gymnasium.
GAMES, we have so many! Board games, puzzles, LEGOS and more! Or for some outdoor action, there’s always tennis, basketball, hiking and biking. For the emerging artists we have arts and crafts, dance and few camp wide murals ready to be imagined.
DANCE with Frit & Frat offering two levels: Intro to dance where campers can tap into their creative energies and bring to life their inner artistic dancer. Beginner/Intermediate level where campers can explore the elements of ballet, contemporary and hip hop with a focus on technique and body awareness. Both levels will be able to share what they’ve learned in the Talent Show at the end of camp.
