Danielle Ramsey-Smith

Group Camping Director

Danielle Ramsey-Smith

Originally from Marshalltown, Iowa, Danielle started working at Y Camp during college in 2014 as a summer camp leader. She couldn’t get enough and has worked every summer since. In the meantime, she graduated from Central College in Pella, Iowa with a degree in Spanish and Sociology. In 2017 Danielle spent the summer working with Group Camping as the Program Coordinator. Now she is back in a full-time capacity as the Program Director of Group Camping, and couldn’t be more excited to work with new and returning organizations. When not at camp, Danielle enjoys listening to music, crafting and traveling the world. She has been to 21 countries on 4 different continents. Please reach out to her if you have any questions, or are interested in staying at the Des Moines Y Camp with your group or retreat.

Fun Fact: She once had a pet squirrel named Hector!
