Bela Szigethy

Owner

Bela has been swimming in Lake Hopatcong since he’s been two.  Not continually, but off and on.  Today he still loves swimming, skiing, kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, boating and, most recently, water bicycling on the biggest lake in the Garden State.  And afterwards having a beer at Alice’s or the Windlass and watching the sunset.  He’s one of our biggest fans.

Tom started with Camp Six in 2014 in the Wheelhouse of Miss Lotta as a Captain.  Later that year, he moved on to Property Manager of Camp Six.  When Tom isn’t reading e-mails and chasing down emergencies, he spends his day scheduling his crew, inspecting all Camp Six professional and privately held properties, overseeing projects and meeting vendors. 

"How I got here. We must start at the beginning, back when I was a kid sailing with my father. The thrill was breathtaking. The wind in my sails blew me into bigger, faster, competitive racing boats that we sailed in many different cities and islands. On the professional side I always had a fun job, from computer technician in the city to home contractor in NJ. After completing my master captain’s license, I saw myself behind the wheel of a large boat. Then in 2014, along came Miss Lotta. The first restaurant boat to sail on Lake Hopatcong. It didn’t take long to find myself in the pilot house. And what a great year it was, At the end of the season Camp Six was looking for a new property manager. And there you have it."
