Jerrell Cox, Director of Camp Hale
Jerrell Cox is the Director of Camp Hale, a post he’s held since 2009. Jerrell has reinvented the program while retaining the traditional spirit of Camp Hale by developing several new program initiatives to provide access to children who need camp the most, including adding girls camp to the traditional all boys camp in 2012. Jerrell is an exceptional leader who strives to support the academic growth, leadership development, and positive self-esteem of all Camp Hale staff and youth.
Jerrell’s passion and commitment stems from his personal connection to Camp Hale as a camper. Jerrell began attending Camp Hale in the summer of 1994, and he has not missed a single summer on Squam Lake since! In October 2003, Jerrell joined the USES team full-time and has held various positions in the After School Program, club48, and Camp Hale, including Director of Out of School Time Programs. In 2015, Jerrell became Director of Camp Hale full-time and is working to secure Camp’s future through a multi-million dollar Capital Campaign alongside the USES team. His favorite part about Camp Hale is a three way tie between the CHFFL (Camp Hale Flag football League), Freeze flag followed by mandatory swim, or cooking for the camp community on the Chef’s day off.
