Maxine Holtzman, Business and Retreat Manager

Maxine Holtzman joins Camp Daisy and Harry Stein as the Business and Retreat Manager, bringing over 30 years of business and administrative background with her, as well as 20+ years in special event planning and coordination, executive administration, restaurant management, and camp staffing.

Maxine is looking forward to a ‘new’ style of summer camp here in the Southwest (sunny!), having just relocated from the Pacific Northwest (rainy!), where she lived for 28 years.

In her new role, Maxine looks forward to showcasing all that Camp Stein’s retreat facilities and accommodations have to offer, being an integral team-player during the summer camp season, all while doing everything to ensure the fun never ends. In her not-so-spare time, Maxine enjoys playing with other people’s dogs, photographing the next perfect sunset, videotaping monsoons, traveling, spending time with family and friends, and searching for the best brunch spot.
