Lesley Fraser, Director

Lesley found her way to Camp Royall for the first time in 2006. Prior to serving as the Director of Camp Royall, Lesley also worked as a Counselor, Activity Director, and Assistant Program Director. Lesley’s life-changing experiences at Camp Royall gave her the commitment and desire to make the permanent move from her home country of Scotland to work year round at camp. Lesley studied for her master’s degree in social work at the University of Edinburgh and is also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Lesley’s favorite part of her job is getting to meet all of our amazing campers and their families, and seeing them return from year to year.

Kristian Page, Assistant Director

Kristian found Camp Royall in 2013 and got her start as a Counselor. Upon graduating with degrees in outdoor education and psychology, she knew she wanted to continue working with people on the autism spectrum in an outdoor setting. Kristian moved from Georgia to work at Carolina Living and Learning Center with UNC TEACCH, and continued to work at Camp Royall’s year-round programs as often as she could. Kristian’s heart has always been with Camp Royall, and she was thrilled for the opportunity to work at the happiest place on Earth full-time.

Sara Gage, Social Recreation Services Director

Sara started as a counselor at Camp Royall in 1997. She became Program Director in 2007 after filling just about every other role available at camp. After receiving her master’s in special education from East Carolina University, Sara served as a special education teacher in the public school system for three years. Sara takes great pride in how Camp Royall has evolved over the years and loves working for ASNC. Sara is thrilled to be able to take what she has learned at Camp Royall and create new social recreation programs across the state. She feels grateful for the chance to work with so many awesome campers, families, and staff all year long.

Cindy Lodestro, Administrative Assistant

Cindy has been working at Camp Royall since March 2014 and loves everything about camp. The directors, the counselors, all of the staff, and the campers are amongst the happiest, most understanding, and generous people she has ever met. She loves the mission of Camp Royall and the beautiful grounds. Cindy is blessed with a great husband and two amazing daughters and has lived just north of Pittsboro for more than 20 years.

Hannah Will, Fellow

Camp Royall stole Hannah’s heart from her very first day as a Residential Counselor in the summer of 2017. The days filled with moments of learning, laughter, and smiles with campers and staff created some of her best memories. In the fall, Hannah returned to her hometown in Wyoming to continue working toward a degree in Elementary Education, but she wasn’t quite the same. Realizing how much she’d changed during her time at camp, returning to North Carolina as a Fellow in January was a natural fit.
Hannah is beyond thrilled to be able to do what she loves for Camp Royall’s year-round programs as a fellow for the rest of the year. There is truly no place she’d rather be than here at camp!

Laura Belmar-Ramos, Fellow

Laura began working at Camp Royall in 2014 and has served as a Residential Counselor and Activity Director every summer since. She recently graduated from the University of Puerto Rico – Rio Piedras Campus with a B.A. in political science. Laura decided to move to North Carolina to continue working at Camp Royall. Laura is looking forward to spending her time as a Fellow assisting individuals with autism and their families through camp’s year-round programming. Camp Royall is her absolute favorite place on Earth!

Marian Easler, Fellow

Marian is a recent graduate of Columbia College, where she received a B.A. in speech-language pathology. In the future, Marian plans to obtain her master’s in communication disorders. She began working at Camp Royall in the summer of 2017 as a Residential Counselor and felt an instant connection to camp. From the very beginning, Marian could tell that there was something special about Camp Royall and the amazing people whom it serves. She is absolutely thrilled to get the opportunity to work as a Fellow for the upcoming year at one of the greatest places on Earth!

Andi Jones, Fellow

Andi is studying psychology at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. It was due to her university that she became acquainted with Camp Royall after joining a service trip there during the fall of 2016. Camp quickly became one of her favorite places on Earth, and she has never truly left since – even when Andi has had to depart, her heart remains with Camp Royall. She is extremely excited to be one of Camp Royall’s Fellows this year and is looking forward to whatever the adventure may bring. Following her graduation from UNCG, Andi plans to attend graduate school for social work and continue to promote the support, acceptance, and inclusion of individuals on the autism spectrum.
