Assistant Director, Camp Deeny Riback
Hi! My name is Arielle Padover and I am thrilled to join Camp Deeny Riback! As the youngest of three children, there were always adventures growing up. For me, the real excitement began when I spent my first summer at camp as a 3-year-old. These summers where I met lifelong friends and created special memories kept me coming back summer after summer, eventually leading to my career in the camp world.
I am a Jersey girl, born and raised! Studying early childhood development at Montclair State University continued to grow and develop my connection with children.
My experience working with children began when I worked as a babysitter, supporting children of all ages. In addition, I worked with The Friendship Circle, continued babysitting and worked as a camp counselor all throughout high school. In the camp world, I have held many roles including camp counselor, division head, operations, transportation, program coordinator and everything else! Camp, to me, is the best opportunity to learn about yourself, while making long-lasting friendships and memories! There is no place like home- which is what camp feels to me.
I am so excited to be a part of such an amazing team here at Camp Deeny Riback. The families that attend keep coming back each summer to work with the caring and genuine staff! I cannot wait to have my first summer at CDR and share the love with everyone!
