Roz & Jed Buck - Roz & Jed Training & Consulting

Gary Forster

Roz and Jed worked side by side from 2004-2016 as the Owners/Directors of Meadowbrook Country Day Camp, a large private day camp in northwest NJ serving approximately 1,000 campers and 400 staff each summer.  Their work in camp and with youth and young adults dates back to high school when they met as teenagers working at a summer day camp.  After retiring from full-time camp ownership, Roz and Jed launched Roz and Jed Training & Consulting to help other camps and organizations make a difference.  They have presented at many ACA, YMCA, and Recreation & Parks Conferences throughout the country and trained thousands of leadership and general staff from camps throughout the Northeast.  Outside of camp, they have also worked with multiple corporate clients and not-for-profit organizations in the areas of Leadership, Team Building, Customer Service, Culture, and Values.  They are active volunteers with many organizations and in 2016 they were honored as joint recipients of the prestigious ACA Thelma Hurwitz Leadership Award.
