Ariana Goldklang – Aquatics Director
Shibley Shibley! My name is Ariana Goldklang and I am excited to be the new Aquatics Director at Shibley Day Camp after spending 2023 working as the Assistant Aquatics Director. This will be my 15th summer working in summer camp aquatics. I was the Aquatics Director at Camp Jacobson from 2019-2022. During the school year I work as a school social worker at the Kew-Forest School.
I am so excited to work with our campers again and provide them with a fun, supportive and safe environment to learn new skills and progress in the pool this summer! My goal is to make sure all of our campers learn to swim at a pace that is comfortable for them and to ensure that they feel safe and confident in their abilities in the water. Looking forward to summer 2024!!
Jared Levy – Assistant Aquatics Director
My name is Jared Levy, and I am excited to take on the role of Assistant Aquatics Director. I spent this past summer supervising the new “Galaxy Pool” at Shibley. I welcome this opportunity to foster the growth of our campers as they become confident swimmers. I am a certified and experienced Water Safety Instructor and I’ve taught all Red Cross swim levels. Before my employment at Shibley this summer I worked at another private day camp teaching children how to swim. I have coached many campers in becoming comfortable in the water with basic aquatic skills. Once they are comfortable, I really love seeing them blossom into swimmers with refined strokes.
Outside of Camp, I am a teacher in New York City with experience working in middle and high school. My two young children also spent their first summer at Shibley in 2023 and it proved to be a wonderful and nurturing environment for them. I loved watching them smile as they engaged with friends and participated in all the activities. This summer, I look forward to working with the entire Shibley staff, the parents and most importantly, the campers. Outside of teaching and camp, I love spending time with my family, working out and surfing.
