Summer Camp: Our Staff, Part 1...
We thought with summer fast approaching you would like to get to know our senior staff members. These are the folks that make our Summer Camp Program so fantastic. We know you will not only enjoy their company but the breadth of knowledge, skills and passion they bring to our summer Camp Program is remarkable.
My name is Travis Gamelin, and I will be one of the Craft Directors at Lutheridge this summer! I graduated from UCF with a degree in Radio/Television in 2005, and now teach Video Productions at a private Christian school. I also freelance for various types of video. I'm looking forward to my 5th summer on staff at Lutheridge after 3 great years as a counselor, and directing crafts last summer. I am so excited to be a part of this ministry, and to have the chance to create an environment for campers to grow and realize their creativity in a fun, safe place.
I'm Jacob Ridenhour and I'm currently working in Guest Services at Lutheridge. I will be one of two Outdoor Adventure Program Area Directors at Lutheridge for Summer 2009. I'm looking forward to the summer because I truly love spending time in the outdoors and seeing the benefits that the outdoor adventure program can bring to the lives of campers. The OAP program at Lutheridge offers challenges and adventures in a safe, Christian community where campers can bring home new experiences spent in God's creation from activities like rock climbing, white water rafting, and canoeing, along with a lifetime of memories and friendships.
Hi! My name is Maressa and will be the General Duty Area Director at Lutheridge. Right now I am at High Point University working on my Masters in Sports Studies (It's so fun!). I am really excited about this summer because I feel like every day at camp is the best day of my year; I am so blessed to get to work at Lutheridge! To me, Lutheridge offers a chance to meet some truly wonderful and gifted people, have OH so much fun and grow daily in my faith. I feel like it is my second home. Sometimes...I get “campsick” (it's true...).
Hi - I'm Elizabeth Sanders and I will be the Lakeside Area Director at Lutheridge. Currently, I am a junior at College of Charleston majoring in Media Communication. I'm excited for this summer because I love spending the summer with awesome kids and seeing campers and staff grow with God. To me Lutheridge offers a new and different experience every year. It is a place where campers can grow, reflect, learn, play, and just get away from it all for a week.
