Meet Our Leadership Team
Owners, Directors, and Key Staff
Ross & Susan Moskowitz – Owner/Director
Ross Moskowitz is proud to continue the legacy set forth by his parents. Ross started his Westmont career in 1981 in bunk Apache and never looked back.
After graduating from the University of Maryland where he played Division 1 Baseball for the Terps, Ross attended law school and became an attorney. With Westmont always on his mind and camping in his heart, he jumped at the opportunity to become the Camp’s Director.
Moving forward it is Ross’ vision to lead a new generation of Westmont campers and show them why Camp Westmont truly is “Camping at Its Best.” Ross is also the President of the Wayne County Camping Association. Ross is joined at Westmont with his wife Susan (who is also an attorney) and his children Emilly and Andrew.
Fred & Minna Moskowitz – Owners
Minna and Fred Moskowitz opened Camp Westmont for the 1981 camp season. They were both educators with the New York City Board of Education. Fred was the Dean of Grady High School, as well as a varsity high school coach for basketball and tennis. Minna worked for over 25 years as a Speech Pathologist and Language Coordinator. These qualifications and their experience have proven invaluable throughout the years at Camp Westmont.
Possessing 40 years of camping experience, Minna and Fred continue to strive to bring campers the most innovative programming and activities possible.
Scott Freemer – Associate Director
Scott started at sleep-away camp at age 7 and has been involved in sleep-away camps since. He joined Camp Westmont in 2006 and has held various roles throughout camp from a Program Specialist, General Counselor to an Assistant Group Leader and most recently a Group Leader. Wanting to give even more of himself to Westmont, in 2014 he stepped into the role of Operations Manager where he is involved in Staff hiring, Programming, Social Media and much much more. His dedication to camping goes beyond Westmont as he is an active member of EPIC (Emerging Professionals In Camping) and is now on the Associate Board for SCOPE and a camp visitor/inspector for the American Camping Association.
Scott believes the most rewarding part of Camp Westmont is being able to help shape the lives of our campers.
Scott and his wife Melissa, whom he met at Camp Westmont, live in Bergen County, NJ during the year.
Hallie Saltz – Girls Head Counselor
Hallie Saltz began her sleep-away camp experience at Camp Westmont at the age of 8 and has never looked back. Camping is in Hallie’s blood. Her parents met at a sleep away camp, and her father worked in the camping industry for 35 years.
Hallie has made her way from Bunk Barnard to Varsity, became a counselor, a group leader, and most recently Girls Assistant Head Counselor for the past 5 summers. Hallie’s best friends were all made at Camp Westmont. She is dedicated to helping campers develop independence, confidence, and create life long friendships!
Hallie has a degree in Psychology from Cornell University and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from NYU. Hallie has been a teacher in New York City for the past 13 years. Hallie lives in New York City. She can’t wait for her debut as Girls Head Counselor this summer!
Matt Wohl – Boys Head Counselor
In 1994, Matthew began his sleep-away camp experience in his hometown of Toronto, Canada. It wasn’t until he joined the Camp Westmont staff as a counselor in 2005 that he realized the true value camp has to offer. From that summer on he was locked into the spirit of Camp Westmont and the wonderful traditions it upholds. From Cavalier Counselor to Popeye Group Leader, Matthew encompassed what it means to be a role model for Boys’ Side. In 2014, he was promoted to Boys’ Assistant Head Counselor where he harnessed the Westmont Family’s many strengths to help grow confidence in our campers and bring out their best!
Matthew’s accolades include receiving a dual degree from the University of Western Ontario, as well as a Sports Management Diploma from Fanshawe College where he was a member of their Golf Team.
Matthew and his fiancé Carly, whom he met at Camp Westmont, call both Toronto and New York home. He looks forward to his debut as Boys Head Counselor this summer!
Joey Silberfein – Assistant Director / Parent Liaison
Joey Silberfein started sleep-away camp at 5 years old after begging her parents to let her go with her older brothers. Joey comes to Westmont with many years of camping experience both as a camper and counselor.
Joey joined the Camp Westmont family as the Parent Liaison (an always- available contact for our Camp Westmont families) and works as Ross’ right hand throughout the year. She loves being at camp with her three daughters. She and her husband Scott are looking forward to watching their daughters move through the Girls Side loop.
As our Parent Liaison, Joey is the first line of communication for any questions or concerns that may arise. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
From a very young age Bari knew camping was what she wanted to do with her life. She knew that camp was the best part of her year, so why shouldn’t she make it her whole year? That’s exactly what she did.
Bari’s camp journey began in 2005 at a Wayne County camp just down the road from Westmont. During her 13 years there, she grew as a camper, counselor, assistant group leader, pre-camp intern, post-camp key staff member, and of course color war general. These experiences have cultivated her passion for camping and made her the person she is today.
In 2018, Bari was given the opportunity to join the Westmont family full time and her childhood aspiration came true. Bari is involved in Staff Hiring, Programming, Social Media and works directly with the girl campers as a Group Leader in the summer. She is an active member of EPIC (Emerging Professionals In Camping) and looks forward to following in Ross and Scott’s footsteps by becoming an active member of the American Camping Association. Bari has a degree in Education and Sport Management from Syracuse University.
