Meet Our Camp Director Lily Mercogliano

Lily grew up in Albany NY and began attending Camp Wa Wa when she was almost eight years old.  She spent the next thirteen summers at WA WA, completing the teen Senior Village program, LIT/CIT program, and eventually becoming a counselor and program director. For the past eleven years, Lily’s career as a high school teacher took her to Brooklyn, NY where she taught, and later became Executive Director, at Brooklyn Free School, a unique and world renown democratic school that serves youth in grades pre-K through 12th grade.


Lily currently resides again in Albany with her two children and husband.  She credits WA WA with fostering her passion for education and community development.
