Uncle Speedy

Uncle Speedy is a true camp lifer, having spent more than 60 years at Camp Nock-A-Mixon! Born and raised in Hewlett, New York, Speedy first came to Nock-A-Mixon in 1957 at just 5 years old! He later progressed to counselor, Athletic Director, Division Leader, Head Counselor, and Assistant Director. He started his professional career as a Philadelphia public school teacher before going to work full time for the previous owner of Nock-A-Mixon in 1978. In 1981, he and Aunt Bernice purchased the camp and have been the owners and directors ever since. Uncle Speedy is a dedicated sports fan with an immense appreciation for the arts as an avid theater goer. As a result he is able to connect with campers of all interests. Speedy spends his winters in West Palm Beach, Florida playing golf, rooting for his beloved Ohio State Buckeyes and cooking up brand new ideas for the summer!
