Having founded Camp Zeke in 2012, Lisa and Isaac Mamaysky pour their hearts and souls into camp. They oversee all aspects of the community together and pride themselves on Camp Zeke’s culture of kindness and warmth. Over the past six years, they have formed wonderful relationships with campers, families and staff, and they look forward to deepening those friendships for years to come.
Lisa graduated magna cum laude with joint degrees from Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary. She loves connecting with the kids and watching them grow up in Camp Zeke’s warm community. Outside of her time with camp, Lisa has over a decade of experience as a marketing manager at global investment banks. In her spare time, she enjoys cycling, hiking, dance, and finding sometimes-elusive recipes for healthy desserts. If you stop by camp, she’s the one walking around with a gallon jug of sunblock ensuring everyone is covered!
Isaac spent his whole life going to overnight camp and always dreamed of running his own camp. Now that his dream has become a reality, Isaac knows every single camper and staff member by name, and he is deeply involved in Camp Zeke’s management. When he has a free moment during the camp day, Isaac loves jumping into a fitness or martial arts class, running in the all-camp 5K, and of course, tasting all the delicious creations that campers make in culinary arts classes. Isaac earned his juris doctor degree cum laude from the Boston University School of Law and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Rhode Island Honors Program.
Lisa and Isaac live in Westchester, New York with their daughter, son, and dog.
