Day Camp Director

Christopher Burnett is the director of Day Camp. Chris has been at Penn Charter for 25 years, teaching math in Lower School and coaching basketball at many levels, from fourth-grade enrichment to Upper School varsity. Chris has been an active member of the Penn Charter Day Camp family for longer than he has been here as a teacher and coach – almost 30 years – and has served as assistant director of Day Camps for more than 25 years. Chris's sons Ryan and Dylan (OPC '17) have attended camp and served as counselors, and his wife, Cindy, was a beloved junior bunk counselor for many years. What has impressed Chris most about camp over the years is watching students from various walks of life find the opportunity to create new relationships and maintain them as they return each summer. "I have watched some of our campers since they were in the junior bunks," he said, "and I am now seeing photos of them as they get married and begin their own families. It's an amazing gift to watch how our campers grow and take flight on their own over the years!"
