Susanne Floyd grew up near a little creek on a hillside in Santa Barbara, California. It was there that her love of nature first began. She often spent her days building bridges, climbing trees, digging in the dirt and pretending to fish, all while getting completely covered in mud!
During high school, Susanne headed for the Mountains. Every weekend was spent hiking, mountain biking and camping in the beautiful back country. In college, she persued her two passions: Early Childhood Education and Geology. Susanne graduated from SFSU with a degree in 1998.
Working as a nanny throughout school, Susanne developed a connection to Temple Emanu-El Preschool. She worked there as a teachers assistant in the Pre-K program for 5 years. During that time, Susanne saw the need for pre- and post-summer childcare for her students. With the help of her roommate Stephen, she began "Camp Susanne". Over the next several years, Susanne pursued her education while continuing to work at the preschool and run the camp.
With the support from family and friends, Susanne has turned her focus full-time to the Camp business with SF Quest Kids!
