Leadership Team


Emma O'Loughlin

Director of Extended Year Services

Emma O'LoughlinI have worked at BB&N summer camp for 8 years now and have enjoyed every minute of it. I started as an Activities Counselor, developed programming for the Classic Camp, managed the Extended Day Program, and currently the Director. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Duquesne University and a Masters Degree in Moderate Disabilities PreK-8 from Cambridge College. I have a passion for teaching and truly enjoy exploring new ways to engage all kids. I continue to be impressed with our summer camp staff, who work hard everyday to make camp the best place on earth! Summer@BB&N has provided me with a “home away from home” feel and we hope you feel the same!

Cristina DeFabritiis

Office Manager

Christina DeFabritisMy name is Cristina DeFabritiis and this will be my 16th summer working at BB&N. I began my time here as a CIT, then Junior Counselor, Head Counselor, and now hold the position of Summer Camp Office Manager. During the school year, I teach 1st grade for the Watertown Public Schools. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, working out, traveling, and finding new “diners, drive-ins, and dives” to add to my list! I am looking forward to another summer of summer camp memories with campers, counselors, and parents. While my primary job is making sure the camp office runs smoothly, I also love interacting with campers on a daily basis and helping parents feel at ease about our program. Let’s get ready for a fantastic Summer 2021!

Ryan McCarthy

Junior, Senior, and Teen Camp Manager

Ryan McCarthyBB&N Summer Camp has been a part of my life for more than 20 years. During this time the camp has been a place for children and young adults to gather together for a memorable experience full of learning and adventure. Our staff has had a long tradition of inclusive practices which seek to highlight the strengths found in each of our campers and build self-esteem. In my view, camp plays an essential role in the overall development of a child. If we can create an atmosphere at BB&N that encourages participation and healthy risk-taking, our campers will go home each day filled with feelings of accomplishment and fellowship. Promoting an environment at camp that will foster this type of positive growth for our next generation of leaders is crucial. I am very excited to help carry on the tradition of excellence that has been established by others and look forward to establishing new traditions as we look to the future.

Abbie DeMagistris

LIT, Mentor, Activities, and Kiddie Camp Manager

Abbie DeMagistrisMy name is Abbie DeMagistris. I am a 3rd grade teacher and former first grade teacher for Melrose Public Schools. This is my 5th year at BB&N summer camp and I am very excited to be back for another year of fun! My favorite thing about BB&N is that while it has many activities that makes it unique like archery and nature, we value the importance and love of classic camp activities like arts and crafts, beading, and sports! When I am not working I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my puppies, Finley and Hazel. I’m looking forward to another great summer and I hope you are, too!
