Patty Lifter is the fourth generation Director of Camp Pinecliffe. Growing up in a camping family, it’s not surprising that over her 25 years at camp, Patty has held numerous positions. In addition to her summers as a camper, Patty has worked as a Bunk Counselor, Senior Bunk Counselor, Waterfront Instructor, Program Director, and Staff Director. Patty also spent several summers working for other summer camps, providing her with a well-rounded understanding of the camping industry. All of these experiences led to Patty becoming Director of Camp Pinecliffe in 1990.
Before joining Pinecliffe full-time, Patty spent several years teaching at Columbia Grammar and Prep School in New York City. She lives in NYC during the year with her husband, Mark, and their son, Jack. Patty attended Ohio University in Athens, OH, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism.
