Barbie Cobb

Kiyi, I’m Barbie, the Camp Logistics Director and Communications Liaison – a brand new position for camp and for me! This summer will be my 19th summer at camp; the last 10 summers at Wyo I was the Junior UD. During the off-season, I live in Weston, MA with my husband, Alex, and two teenage daughters, Abby and Ellie. I am an elected member of the School Council for the Weston, MA Public Schools, and a prior ACA New England Board Member. I started at Wyo as a camper in the 80’s, have since “grown up” at camp as a CIT, AC, cabin counselor, trip leader, and UD. In this new role I will be involved with planning and communication between the Wyonegonic office and the Units. With so many details needing to be shared across camp at all times, I hope to streamline and simplify the processes and practices of connection. It is very exciting to take on this new role as I feel there is room for enhanced communication, coordination, and collaboration across all areas of camp. I share my love of Wyo with my two daughters who consider Wyo to be their second home as well. My older daughter, Abby, will be a counselor this summer, and my younger daughter, Ellie, will be an AC. I love having the privilege to return to camp each summer to witness the growth of my prior campers as they rise through the units. It is also so meaningful to see prior ACs and young staff take on more responsibilities, and become leaders within the camp community. Camp allows young girls to find their voice, be true to themselves, and to embrace what makes them unique. I’m so excited to return to Wyo this summer as I missed it terribly in 2020. Can’t wait for June! Kiyi!
