Daniel Atkins

While living in England, Daniel heard about Romaca from his high school teacher, who had been a counselor at Romaca during the 70’s. A small world indeed!

Daniel joined Romaca in 1993 and has been part of the staff ever since.

Before accepting a year-round position as Assistant Director and moving to the States in 2000, Daniel travelled to Romaca each summer. He was Romaca’s Athletic Director from 1995-2000. In the off-season, Daniel earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education from Exeter University (1997) and worked as a high school teacher until 2000. In 2005, Daniel became Romaca’s Co-Director.

Romaca occupies a very special place in Daniel’s heart – he met his future wife, Meghan, at Romaca in 1999. They were married in a beautiful ceremony here at camp in 2008. They’ve experienced the considerable satisfaction of raising their family in two settings: the picturesque Berkshires in the summer and in the suburbs of Austin, Texas, during the off-season.

Romaca’s strong sense of family, friendship and tradition has been central in making camp a special part of Daniel’s life. In addition to his active role as Co-Director, Daniel still makes time to teach advanced soccer skills. Fostering an atmosphere in which girls develop bonds that can last a lifetime remains the most rewarding aspect of his experiences at Romaca.
