Ashley Vaccaro

Camp Director

I am excited to be joining the BIS Summer Camp Programme for my second summer as Camp Director! During the academic year, I am one of the Deputy Directors for the Pre/Primary British International School. I have fifteen years of experience working with primary aged children in both educational and summer camp settings, and am a proud mother to three children of my own. I love the inclusive community, wonderful students and families, caring staff, and beautiful grounds that our campus in Zekeriyakoy offers. I look forward to welcoming children to the BIS Summer Camp where they will make friends, grow, socialise, try new things, and most importantly, have fun!
