Tom Ingoldsby is the father of a disabled son and has been involved in programs supporting children and adults with intellectual disabilities for many years. Tom manages the camp but during the summer is as likely to be found on the beach with the campers or having a meal at one of the houses as at his desk in the camp office. As a student, he was a counselor at the Kennedy Institute summer camp.

Tom coached Special Olympics soccer and basketball teams for over ten years. Like Camp Atlantic, the priorities on Tom's teams were age appropriate behavior on and off the field, maximizing individual potential and then winning. The athletes had a broad range of athletic ability and social development. Through their interaction on the field and in team sponsored events, they have become a group of friends who interact with each other and who enjoy each other's company. The group dynamics of the Special Olympics teams are very similar to the sense of belonging and friendship that Camp Atlantic generates.

Tom retired from his law firm and enjoys working part time as a lawyer. He is a graduate of Brown University and Duke University Law School.

Megan Phillips, Director, is a seventh generation resident of Sussex County. Her love of the beach and the beach way of life is in her blood. Megan has the wonderful ability to direct conversations with campers so they feel in charge of a conversation that leads to a good decision. This makes her a popular and very effective leader at camp.

Megan joined Camp Atlantic as the Assistant Director in 2017 and became the Director in 2018. She prepares the weekly schedule of activities and manages the camp's operation during the summer. Her favorite activities are the trips to the waterpark, the 4th of July Parade and days at the beach. It is not surprising that Megan finds that providing a deserving group of people a summer all about fun in a safe and secure setting is a big reward of her position.

Megan has extensive experience dealing with the special needs population. She is a third grade special needs teacher in the Indian River School District. During college, she was a camp counselor at the Boys & Girls Club in Laurel, Delaware and a mentor in a group home for mentally disabled individuals.

Megan is a graduate of Wilmington University. She lives with her husband, Taylor, and daughter, Piper, in Seaford, Delaware.

Group leaders live with the campers in the beach houses and are their companions in their daily activities. The group leaders are instrumental in creating the "house spirit" and organize most of the events that occur within the house such as game nights and special desserts. They also create the structure necessary for the house to function effectively and assign and monitor household chores.

Prior to the start of each season, the group leaders receive 40 hours of training including a First Aid course. Most of the group leaders have been working with persons with disabilities or are studying for careers in education, medical rehabilitation or social support services.
