2024 Updates in Progress

Melissa Carter

Melissa has been a part of Camp Arrowhead’s Legacy since 2002. She started as a volunteer, needing to get her volunteer hours to graduate from high school, when unexpectedly she fell in love with the program, the facility, and the people.  After the first day she immediately signed up to volunteer the rest of the summer and knew that this would forever be her happy place. Arrowhead helped her, like it has helped many other people, decide what direction she wanted her life to go.  Melissa graduated from Bridgewater State in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Special Education with a concentration in Communication Disorders.  While she was there she was able to participate in the CPDC program, Children’s Physical Developmental Clinic.  She was lucky enough to work in the Wellesley Public Schools right out of college, providing one to one assistance with kids in the Elementary School level as well as working with full classrooms.  In September of 2013 Melissa became the Special Needs Coordinator for the Natick Recreation and Parks Department.

She loves taking pictures, singing karaoke, and hanging out with family.
One of her favorite things about camp is Open Circle because the whole camp is together, singing songs, and everyone can feel the energy and excitement for the adventures in the day ahead.
