Aunt Bernice

Aunt Bernice, a Philadelphia native, first came to Camp Nock-A-Mixon as a counselor in 1970. She was promoted to Head of Girls’ Camp in 1973, a position she held until she and Uncle Speedy became the sole owners of camp in 1981. Bernice also spent 22 years as a school teacher, and overall has more than 50 years of experience working with children. At camp, Aunt Bernice never stops moving. She runs the camp office, teaches Zumba classes, takes pictures and always has the best costumes for Junior Girls Halloween night! Of course what the girls love most is each night when Aunt Bernice visits their cabins to make sure she says goodnight to each and every girl. In the winter, Aunt Bernice heads down to Florida with Uncle Speedy where she is a passionate tennis player. She also enjoys Mahjong and knitting the most comfortable sweaters!
