"My son's AMAZING counselors gave my son the same care and kindness and life-lesson advice and support that I would have. They empowered him to be a better person rather than label him a bad kid. The counselors are true professionals. They are there because they love children and they are very well trained by the leadership of Super Duper."
- Deena A.
Camp is ultimately about relationships, connection & growth. That’s why the cornerstone of our program is our People.
After all, camp is just a place and a schedule without the amazing people who foster connection and make it fun, safe, enriching, uplifting and memorable.
That’s why we are downright obsessive about finding and hiring the right people.
For us, the “right people” means…
The kind of people we want our campers to learn from and be like. People who inspire and are inspired. People who are passionate about life and compassionate towards others. People who are mindful of the power of their actions and their words. People who are loving, kind, nurturing, wacky, fun, quirky, unique, not afraid to shine and be seen.
We also search for those rare folks who not only possess that one-of-a-kind spark, but also have the professional background to match.
This means we hire mature, experienced adults who each bring a unique essence and distinct set of professional credentials to the team.
Our team members come from a wide variety of backgrounds (education, social work, psychology, anthropology, spiritual studies, media production, arts, and camp, just to name a few).
But at their core, every person on the Camp Super Duper team is a teacher, a leader, and a loving, kind-hearted, sparkly soul with something to unique and special to give.
That’s what makes them… Sup Dup!
(They are also thoroughly screened, background-checked, first-aid certified and Sup Dup trained!)
Segev Perets - Founder / Executive Director
The captain of our ship and mad scientist behind Super Duper, Segev is the founder of Super Duper and the driving force behind continually evolving the philosophy and program forward. His background is in Art, Psychology, Anthropology, Education and Spiritual Studies.
Segev’s vision is to bring the essence of what camp is, and has always been, truly about into the 21st century, with innovation in programming and a philosophical model that takes the most current educational, psychological research into a big picture and small picture context to cultivate and empower the youth of today to engage, improve and uplift the world of tomorrow (and be happy in their heart!).
At camp, Segev can be seen doing everything from running carpool line, to leading staff meetings to handling administrative duties. But his favorite thing is hanging out with the kids!

Adriana Duran - Front Desk
During the regular school year Adriana is a director for an after-school program for her local school district, where she focuses on academics and enrichment for youth. She is passionate about her career choice because she enjoys making personal connections with her students and guiding them towards purposeful and meaningful lives. Upon arriving at camp, two summers ago, she realized that camp SUP DUP occupied a special place in her heart. She realized it was a place one can be themselves and grow from their experiences. All though she didn’t grow up in summer camp, she now understands the impact it can have on a child’s life.
She’s excited to be a part of an awesome and inspiring team where she continues to grow each year.
