  • Promote moral and spiritual growth among the young people.

Camp Coordinators

Elder Bob Hedrick and his wife Liza are the Teen Camp Coordinators.



Each cabin will have at least one lead Counselor and possibly a Counselor-In-Training. These adults provide direct supervision and help guide the youth of the camp by setting an example of Godly behavior in keeping with the Camp's purpose and theme.


C.I.T.s faithfully assist the staff Counselors in all of their duties. They willingly learn from them, building good leadership skills. C.I.T.s are energetic in their participation in all aspects of the camp, whether it be a fun activity or work. Are you a Church of Christ member interested in becoming a C.I.T.?

It's a messy job...but someone's got to do it!

As 2015 Teen Camp Counselors Riley Mengarelli and Amanda Stratton can tell you, sometimes the job can get a little messy - from unmade bunks to campfire skits at their expense!
