Dacha Thurber

Dacha Thurber is the Waterfront Director and Middler Division Head for Summer 2024.  This will be Dacha’s 14th summer at Camp. He was previously a Cabin Leader (2021) in the Middler Division, Besserer Assistant Division Head (2022) and the Middler Division Head (2023-present). Dacha also served as the Sailing Program Head in 2022 and 2023.  

During the fall of 2020, Dacha worked at camp on conservation and belonging initiatives. No surprise – Dacha’s favorite ways to enjoy Belknap all involve the lake – sailing, taking in the sunrises and sunsets, and skiing on glassy water! 

Originally from Exeter, NH, Dacha is currently in his junior year at Harvard College, pursuing a degree in computer science and music. In addition, he is a violinist and conductor in ensembles throughout Boston and a violin coach at the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra. On the side, Dacha is a chocolate taster for Lindt & Sprüngli and he loves cooking and birding!
