Michael Douglass has been the Executive Director of Camp Bishopswood, in Hope, Maine, for the past 6 summers.
Prior to Bishopswood, Mike spent many years working at Lutheran camps in New York and New Hampshire, before moving into public education. Mike spent four years teaching high school math and helped pilot a dropout prevention program. Mike then moved to work for two years in middle school special education.
Currently, Mike serves on the board of directors for the Sweetland School, and Maine Summer Camps, where he serves as the chair of Level Ground, an initiative to get immigrant and refugee campers to camps in Maine. When Mike is not working he enjoys touring Canada on his motorcycle, skiing in the winter, curling and spending time with his amazing wife Hanna and their two dogs, Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley.
I loved going to summer camp as a kid. It was a place where I could be myself, try new things, make lots of friends, and just have fun.
