Management

David Billingham, Camp Director 

David Billingham, our Camp Director, has worked at the Southampton Fresh Air Home since 1994, first as a counselor, then assistant director, and camp director since 2000.  For David the Southampton Fresh Air Home is more than a camp.  He and his wife Kara met at the camp as counselors, and worked together for years to create the Home’s unique atmosphere.  During the summer David and Kara and their children live at the Home with the campers and other staff.  There is a sense of family in David’s work, as there is throughout the camp.  Many counselors return year after year, as do more than half the campers.  David’s philosophy as well as the camp’s unique environment, are steeped in principles and practices promoting safety, fun and caring.
