The Camp Laurelwood Team is Growing!

We are pleased to announce the newest member of the Camp Laurelwood professional staff. Taylor McLeod joins our team as the Director of Development. Taylor has over 10 years of experience in political campaigns with the majority of those years focused on fundraising. Originally from Charleston, SC, Taylor's career has allowed her to live all over the country in places like Colorado, Virginia and California. Before joining Camp Laurelwood she spent the last year consulting on fundraising efforts for multiple Connecticut races from the mayoral level all the way to gubernatorial.  She moved to the New Haven area 2 years ago from Columbia, MO with her fiancé, Mary Kate who is an Engineer with Unilever. They recently bought a house in Hamden where they live with their dog, Blanche and their cat, Billy Jean. Taylor is thrilled to join the Camp Laurelwood team and is excited to help support an organization that has brought so much joy to thousands of campers throughout our 81 years.

The future of Laurelwood continues to look bright and with the addition of Taylor.  Laurelwood is a second home to so many people and we want to continue to spread the word about how incredible our camp truly is.  Taylor comes to camp with this mind and will work tirelessly to ensure Laurelwood continues to grow.

I encourage you to reach out to Taylor ( if you have any questions or just to say hi.
