Elyse Amedeo Greenbaum, LCSW
Elyse DUH began her illustrious Camp career at the tender age of three as a Blueberry I Heart…not counselor, camper! She spent all of her childhood years at Harmony - and loved every moment! After a few years attending sleep away camp Elyse returned to Harmony as an Assistant Counselor for the famous Pam Willowbrook in 2001. During these first few years Elyse had unforgettable experiences such as Jerry asking her to be a Color War Captain for the first time in 2002 (Air vs. Water). Elyse eventually became a Group Leader for the Shangri-La I Stars in 2006. Elyse spent four glorious summers with the Shangri-La I Stars until she was promoted to DUH (Division Unit Head) in 2010 (along with being HarmonyPlus - before and after care Supervisor) and finally Assistant Director in Summer 2015. Elyse won a Campy Award for her dramatic portrayal of Grandma Slow in Camp Harmony's 2006 award winning Over the Edge of Harmony: "Charlie and the Skill Pin Factory".
As for her off-season activities: Elyse graduated from Lafayette College with a BA in Psychology and went on to receive her Masters in Social Work with an Area of Emphasis in School Social Work from Rutgers University. Elyse works as a School Social Worker in the off season. Elyse loves to read Harry Potter, watch Disney movies, visit Disney World, eat cereal, and spend time with her family (especially her golden retriever, Juno) during the winter months.
Elyse's favorite Camp lunches are Buffalo Chicken Cheese Steaks. Her favorite Special Days are Pajama Brunch and Color War and her favorite Camp memory is when her Josh Program (her boyfriend at the time) completely suprised her during the Banquet of 2010 when he got down on one knee and proposed at the climax of the prestigious and infamous Salami award!! In a state of disbelief and utter excitement - Elyse said YES and that banquet will surely be one of the most memorable and best days of her life.
Elyse looks forward to every summer working with the kids at Camp Harmony. They are the most magical and fun filled summers!! She can't wait to help your child grow, learn and have enormous amounts of fun at camp!!
