Justin Lavner, CEO/Executive Director, received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania and J.D. from Villanova University School of Law.  Justin played as high as 2nd singles and 1st doubles for the University of Pennsylvania’s Division I Men’s Tennis Team, helping lead the team to a national ranking his junior and senior year.  After completing a junior, college, and professional level tennis career that allowed him to play nationally and internationally, Justin decided to focus his efforts on  his calling – a career that would positively impact the lives of children throughout the US and internationally.  Justin attended summer camps from ages 4 to 15, and it was summer camp fun that he looked forward to most each year.  However, in creating his own brand of summer camps, and drawing upon his experiences as a former Ivy League Student-Athlete, Justin sought to combine fun and exciting summer camp opportunities with cutting-edge learning and a focus on skill development.  As the founder and active CEO of Lavner Camps, Justin brings his passion for developing and providing incredible summer camp experiences to thousands of happy campers and families each summer.  Always looking to improve, and continue to make a POSITIVE impact on the lives of our youth, Justin and his incredibly talented team work hard year round to develop and offer the highest quality camps and programs available.  Justin and Lavner Camps have garnered exciting media coverage about the camps from The Philadelphia Inquirer, Los Angeles Times, 6ABC, CBS3, NBC10, FOX29, WHYY, Wharton Radio, and more… But, most importantly, Lavner Camps receives tons of incredible letters, emails, and phone calls from camp families with children who established more self-confidence, discovered a passion, built real-world skills, made lifelong friends, and experienced genuine happiness through attending Lavner Camps.  Justin hosted the radio show “The Business of Sports” on 860AM radio, and passed on a TV show offered to him in order to dedicate all of his professional time to Lavner Camps and the many children who benefit from these experiences each year.
