The West Hills Leadership Team, or “Green Shirts” are some of the most caring, outgoing and professional leaders in the industry.
Susan Diamond started at West Hills as a nine year old girl in the Arrow Senecas and continued on through the travel program. She was a CIT, junior counselor, counselor, group leader and Pre-school division leader for many years. Susan is amazed each summer as she watches our little ones grow, develop independence, and learn how to make friends with their peers. She has two sons of her own who are headed to college.
Susan has a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and a B.B.A. in Human Resource Management from UMass. She is extremely thankful for the opportunity to lead our staff and teach them how to care for your children. You can often find her out and about and participating in activities with the campers throughout the summer!
