Meet Our Director
Darell has served in summer camp leadership since 1975, and on staff at The Firs since 1985. Over the years, he has had the pleasure of working with hundreds of young summer staff leaders, as well as thousands of campers, many of them now sending their children to The Firs camps (Fircreek Day Camp or Camp Firwood).
“Directing camp is still fun, still challenging, and always a privilege!”
– Darell Smith
