Ben has been a vital part of the CDR family for 23 years. His passion for CDR is evident each and every day as he greets campers each morning at Boker Tov, joins in on ice cream parties for campers’ birthdays, and makes each special event a little more special than the one before!
When Ben isn’t dressing up for a CDR theme day, you can find him watching sports–especially the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the Boston Red Sox, taking long walks on the beach, or enjoying a beautiful sunset at CDR. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and dog.
Ben is a New Jersey native and a graduate of William Paterson University.
Debra’s first experience with Camp Deeny Riback was when her oldest son attended as a 1st grader. She immediately recognized the warm and nurturing experience her son had that summer. She was so excited that she joined the CDR team the next summer and brought her youngest son there too! Since then she has had several roles at camp, and now is our Registrar. This is her favorite role because she loves being able to share her excitement and passion about CDR with other families and share how it has enhanced and enriched her and her son’s lives in such a positive way. Deb and her boys are so grateful to be part of the magic of CDR!
In the summer, we are joined by an amazing team of professionals including certified teachers and social workers. These professionals dedicate their summers to creating a safe and fun environment at CDR.
