Junior/Jr. High/Youth Camp
July 21 - 25 2019
Directors: Kelsey Boardman and Katie Duda
Resource Leader: Andrew Sampson
I was born in northern Ohio where I lived on a family farm with my parents and younger brother. After I graduated from high school I went to Manchester College (University now) a Church of the Brethren school where I majored in Gerontology and Psychology. In 2000 I graduated and entered Brethren Volunteer Service and went to Camp Myrtlewood in Oregon for the year. While there I attended a men’s retreat and during some conversations throughout the weekend felt called to ministry, and so in the fall of 2001 I enrolled at Bethany Theological Seminary. While in seminary I met my wife, Allison, and we have served in churches in Maryland, Indiana, and California with our sons, Cooper and Eli. We also have three animals that are a part of our family - Daisy and Kayla our English Mastiffs and Fanta, Cooper’s guinea pig. Outside of church work I enjoy a variety of activities including cooking, traveling, and reading.
These amazing leaders will guide COB youth through a week packed full of activities like: sharing, hiking, inventing and playing games, exploring, eating, being crafty, making friends, building community, working and learning together, singing, praying, and loving the camping wilderness.
This camp is for those who have finished grades 4 through 12. Campers will spend most of their time together, but will be in cabins and other groups by grade level completed (grades 4 & 5 Juniors; grades 6-8 Jr. High; grades 9-12 Youth).
