Meet the Camp Billings Directors
In over 110 years, Camp Billings has changed directors only four times! In 2019 Anne and Sean Collins will take over for Bob Green as the sixth generation of directors.
For the past 18 years, Bob Green has been our beloved director. Being a camper and counselor himself, throughout the 60s and 70s, Bob, affectionately called Emperor Bob, has preserved and progressed the magic of camp for thousands of campers and staff. He is a camp legend who spends the offseason with his Goldendoodle, Chauncey, in Pompano Beach, Florida. Bob is an undefeated camp tennis champion and you can find him serving up some fun all summer long.
Anne Collins (formerly Hartman) started going to camp in 1997 as an eight-year-old and never looked back. Anne grew up in Philadelphia and fell in love with Camp Billings before she ever came when she dropped her brothers off for their first summer in 1996. She went through the CIT program and ran fishing, tennis, and athletics until 2012 when she moved out of counseling and became co-office manager. She stayed there for 6 years and will now be transitioning to the director in 2019. Anne studied history at the University of Vermont and is now getting her masters in education to teach grades 7-12 in history. She married her camp sweetheart and could not be more excited to come back to her favorite place on earth summer after summer. Anne has dedicated her life to children and currently teaches 8th-grade history. She loves jazz, her cat, storytelling and camp food. Anne even has the Camp Billings symbol tattooed on her left foot!
Sean Collins began camp in 1997, a boy from Long Island escaping to the woods. He quickly fell in love with camp and was a counselor in many different program areas. Sean has run archery, boating, canoeing, and athletics. For one summer he was in charge of every evening program. Sean became the CIT director in 2009 and has been training our future staff for nearly a decade. Sean studied history and education at Marist College and got a masters in history from The University of Vermont. Sean teaches eighth-grade history in Wellesley, Massachusetts. Sean loves ice cream, hooded t-shirts and raising a raucous in the dining hall. Sean and Anne live in Natick, Massachusetts with their black and white cat, Pan, who joins them for the summer season, but she’s more of an indoor kid.
