Director: Glenn Smith
Today Camp Tall Timbers is directed by the next generation of the Smith family, Jerry’s son Glenn Smith. Glenn not only grew up at CTT, but his birth was also announced over the loudspeaker at camp in 1962! Glenn lives at camp all summer and in the off-season resides with his family in Frederick, MD.
Glenn has been a camper, CIT, and counselor at Camp Tall Timbers. He became the owner and director in the late 1990’s. Now as a father and husband, he is proud to give his own children the experience of camp. “I cannot begin to describe the impact that camp has had on my life,” Glenn says. “The diversity of skills I have gained and the many great campers, counselors, staff and parents I have had the privilege to be involved with is indescribable.”

Emma Knox, Assistant Director
Originally from northern England, Emma began working for Camp Tall Timbers as a counselor in 1998, continuing to return year after year as she couldn’t get enough of the s’mores. After being a long-time year-round employee for Camp Tall Timbers, Emma now recruits and hires the team for the summer, as well as trains and certifies the lifeguards, and helps out in all aspects of camp. Emma loves camp for friendships, lifelong memories, and of course Dippies.
