Founder & Director
Tommy Feldman

Tommy knew from an early age that camp was his life’s work! After many summers attending and then directing camps in Wisconsin and Colorado, Tommy started Mountain Day Camp in 2005, which evolved into Camp Granite Lake.

“The growth I experienced at camp influences everything I do in work and play. I wouldn’t be who I am, and I wouldn’t have my energetic and independent approach to life without it. Little did I know the influence camp was having on my life – I was just having fun!”

Tommy’s family is actively involved in life at camp. His wife, Ali, is a pediatrician. Their kids are: Joey, age 7 (starting his first year at camp this summer), and Mara, age 5. They live up at camp all summer, too.

TOM PEVEAR

Tom and Family

Tom has been working summers at Camp Granite Lake since 2011, and has been a part of the year-round team, first as Program Director, and now as Assistant Director since 2013. During the summer, you’ll frequently see Tom with a guitar in his hand leading one of his favorite camp songs, like ‘Sloopy’ or ‘Heart of Gold’. During the off season, Tom works with prospective and enrolled families, giving them tours of camp and visiting them for slideshows, as well as interviewing and hiring staff.

Tom and his wife, Jordan live in Denver, CO during the off season with their kids, Arlo and Eleanor, and dogs, Gehrig and Levon.  He enjoys playing guitar, digging through record shops, rooting for the Broncos, and running in his free time.
