Gwen Ajayi is one of the owners of Oak Tree Camps. She has served in the hands-on position of Executive Director for 6 years now with Oak Tree. She is the proud mother of 3 amazing girls Elisha, Olivia, and Aliyah who are always excited to make new friends every year at camp. As a parent, she knows the high expectations set for those who care for our kids and strives to meet and exceed them in how we staff, train, and operate Oak Tree Camps. Gwen is certified in Continuing Education in Youth Leadership and Youth Mental Health First Aid.
When camp isn't in session she dutifully volunteers as a Girl Scout Leader and enjoys her career as a Personal Stylist while occasionally flipping houses with her husband. She is a modern Renaissance woman with many skills in her resume. Some of her hobbies include photography, biking, crafting, gardening, and outdoor adventures.
Evelyn Riggan is our Head Director at Oak Tree. Prior to Oak Tree, Evelyn held positions at camps in California, Jamaica, and the UK. Her focus and attentiveness to the joys and interests of children sets her apart and keep her engaged and intuitive in her position.
Evelyn graduated with a BA in Business Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and an MAT in Early Childhood Education, and is currently completing her MEd in Educational Administration and Policy.
At the top of her priority list are her three children, Darren, Elena, and Esmé. They remind her daily of the importance of a smile and grow her strengths in patience and the art of negotiation.
Evelyn has a passion for the outdoors. Family hikes, countless hours at the pool, and the rejuvenating benefits of a long walk, Evelyn enjoys rooting herself and her family in exploration and the adventures that could come as a result.
Evelyn is thrilled to begin the adventures at Oak Tree Camps, particularly excited about all the faces she will get to see on a daily basis. The laughter of a child can be one of the most rewarding sounds and she is beyond grateful for the moments she will get to share with all your children. This summer will be AWESOME!
