James “JJ” Johnston, Waterfront Director

JJ (also known as “Admiral Johnston”) has spent the majority of his 31 summers as the Lenox Waterfront Director but has also worked as Program Director and Boys Head Counselor. He personally cross-trains the entire waterfront staff and is well-qualified to do so, having taught every activity on the waterfront, from swimming to sailing. His wit and sense of humor is legendary in the camp community.

During the off-season, JJ works as a guidance counselor and MSW-Life Coach at Tavan Elementary School in Phoenix, AZ.
