Pok-O-MacCready New Executive Director


Willsboro, NY, Feb. 18, 2022– The Camp Pok-O-Moonshine, Inc. Board of Directors is pleased to welcome David Durant as camp’s new Executive Director.

Durant has been associated with Pok-O-MacCready for over 30 years, having served as a camper, counselor, section head, assistant camp director, director of the outdoor education center, volunteer, and fundraiser. Away from camp, he has worked as a program director, wilderness medicine instructor, and lead guide for National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and Kroka Expeditions.

“I’m thrilled to be returning to the camp family,” said Durant.  “Of all the places I’ve taught, Pok-O-MacCready is without a doubt the tightest knit and most supportive community; an unparalleled place for young people to unplug, spend time in wild places, and form connections in person.  These things are more important today than ever.  I am humbled and grateful to have been selected as the next Director.”

Added the camp board: “We are excited to have a leader who is inspired by tradition and eagerness to continue to evolve. A former camper who has been positively impacted and inspired to devote his life to the practice of teaching young and old the camping industry, while wanting to give back that experience for future generations.

Durant and his partner Tess plan to relocate to Willsboro full-time. The new Executive Director will lead a five-person year-round staff that swells to nearly 70 during the summer. “As the current pandemic begins to recede, my vision is to work towards a camp that is more accessible, more environmentally conscious, and offers year-round opportunities for our community to connect face-to-face.”
