DAVID SCHREIBER

Role

Owner/Operator

Hometown

Ridgefield, CT

David has dedicated his professional career to the Hospitality and Summer Camp industry. David’s passion is summer camp, and specifically the community that is built through shared unique experiences.
David’s 30 year career journey brought him to be a senior executive in a large hotel chain before he left the corporate world to follow his passion of running a summer camp for children. After 10 years of running a camp, and seeing the pure fun that children were having, David and his wife Gayle felt why can’t we do this for adults. In this overly connected world, David and Gayle purchased Club Getaway to focus on creating a camp experience for everyone. Their belief is that life is an adventure that should be shared with others. They live the four pillars that Club Getaway is built upon Fun, Freedom, Friends and Adventure.
