David Hudnall, Camp Director
Dave has been a part of camp since childhood where he grew up attending 4-H camps all over the state of Georgia. He began his career in camp in Maine where he led and directed a wilderness trips program out of Poland Spring that included back country hiking and camping as well as whitewater canoe trips. He honed his skills as an experiential educator teaching character development for The Leadership School in Maine and science based curriculum for The Outdoor School in Texas. From there Dave moved to the Catskill Mountains of New York State where he oversaw the Group and Family Programs at the largest YMCA camp in the country.
Dave lives at camp with his wife, Mackenzie, and daughter, Stella. Dave met his wife at camp in Maine and being the true camp loving person he is married her at camp in New York. The Hudnall family will welcome their second child, a boy, in April. They truly believe that camp is the best place to raise a healthy, happy family.
As 2015 marks Dave’s tenth year in the camping industry he is excited to return to Dream Day on Cape Cod as their full time Camp Director. He was the seasonal Camp Director for the summers of 2010 and 2011. Dave spent several years during his early childhood in and out of the hospital due to a condition known as Pectus Excavatum which required several surgeries. Because of this Dave knows what a treasure Dream Day is for our campers and their families. He is eager to grow the camp’s program offerings, get to know the families, and provide “a ray of sunshine” to all of our campers.
