Camp Treetops Director
Karen and her family first came to Camp Treetops and North Country School in 1990, drawn by the wild beauty and warm community of the Adirondacks. After several years, graduate school and job opportunities took the family to Ithaca, but summers at Treetops were the constant throughout, with Karen serving in various roles from counselor to program director and camp director since 2003, when the Culpeppers returned to Lake Placid full-time. A graduate of Springfield College, Karen is well versed in environmental, experiential, and special education, as well as recreation and physical therapy. She enjoys hiking, swimming, skiing, and running with family and friends.
