Ashley Himelfarb

Hi! I’m Ashley and I’ve been at camp since 1990 (when I was 4 years old). I loved camp, especially nature, and decided that I wanted to be Bob (the head of nature) when I grew up. Toward that end I became an LT, aide, instructor, and finally department head. I’ll never be as cool or knowledgeable as Bob but I’ve got a few decades to work on it.

Outside of camp I earned a bachelors of science in biology at Bryn Mawr College and a Masters in Art of Teaching in secondary science at Salisbury University. I’m currently a high school science teacher with BCPS.

On the weekends my wife (a former BT camps counselor) and I enjoy walking the goats that live at nature, hiking, cross stitching, and playing disc golf.

I look forward to another great summer in 2022.

Colleen Esposito

HI – my name is Colleen Esposito.  I have been a part of BT Camps summer staff since 2018.  In my time at camp I have been a swim instructor, a theater camp assistant director, a theater camp counselor, and last summer was my first as a Unit Head in Hay/Vav, where I’ll be again this summer.  During the school year, I work as a theater arts and technical theater teacher in the Baltimore County Public Schools, where I have been part of the BCPS family since 2014.  I love working with children in the classroom, on the stage, and at camp.  At school, I direct a Fall production, Spring production, and an end of the year showcase.  Watching my students progress in their love of the arts and own self confidence is such a great joy!

I have a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from McDaniel College in Theater Arts with minors in Acting, Literature, and Interactive Theatre.  I also have a Master’s of Arts in Teaching degree from Towson University in secondary education, and a second Master’s of Arts in Education from Goucher College.

When I am not at camp or school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my two amazing daughters, my family, and friends.  My daughters also love spending their summers at BT Camps: my oldest will be in Bet this year and my youngest will be returning to nursery camp for what I know will be another amazing summer at BT!

Rachel Levy

Hi BT Family! My name is Rachel (Eisenberg) Levy.  I began my nursing journey working at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital with the infants and toddlers.  In 2010 I graduated University of Maryland School of Nursing with my Masters in Nursing and certification as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. After graduation I joined the corporate world and traveled for 5 years to different hospitals, helping to configure, educate, and go live with telemetry and bedside monitors.  While the travel was fun, I missed working with children and began working for the school systems.  I am currently a School Nurse for Baltimore County Schools, at Milbrook Elementary School.

I joined the BT Camp family back in 1987 when I began attending camp as a camper.  I continued my journey through and have worked at camp as a Counselor, Lifeguard, Floater, and then after a 9-year hiatus rejoined the BT Camp Family as one of the amazing Camp Nurses.  I stayed part of the Health team since, taking a summer off to enjoy time in Israel with family.  My two boys, ages 10 and 14 have been attending the “big camp” since the summers they turned 4 and call BT Camps home.  It brings me joy to be back and to be here to help care for your children while they are in camp.  As I tell my school families, I will treat your children like they are my own while we are in camp.  Please feel free to contact camp at any time with health concerns that you may have.  I look forward to being back this summer with my “family!”
