Meet our Director

Kara Sowerby

I am overjoyed to be returning back to Oasis in Bayside this summer as camp director. This summer will be my 11th year working at Oasis (time surely does fly!) I started with Oasis when I was in college as a group leader, then progressed onto division leader, program director, and then camp director.  I’ve spnt three summers as a camp director at Bayside before spending last summer as the director at Wyandanch.  During my time at Oasis I have had the pleasure to build camps all over New York including, North Shore (Long Island), Far Rockaway, Roosevelt, Bayside, and Wyandanch.  During the off session I have spent the last nine years working as an educator.  I absolutely love teaching!  I have had the pleasure of teaching grades PreK-5th grade.  I hold a BA in Childhood Education, a MA in Health Education, and am currently pursuing a Masters in Administration.  My long-term goal is to become an Assistant Principal and then, a Principal. Some of my favorite places to visit in the world are the beautiful islands of Barbados and Antigua. I just love going to the islands during my vacations and spending time on the beaches and enjoying the food!  For fun I think it’s safe to say that I am a Zumba addict. I just love to dance! I guess this is why the time that I enjoy the most at camp is morning rally and helping the campers prepare for the talent show.  I can't wait to see you in camp!
