Camp Registrar (Year-Round)

We were lucky enough in 2014 to gain our camp registrar, Teresa, who originally hails from Arizona! Teresa makes sure camp runs smoothly by handling all the camp paperwork, registration, and phone calls. She is the friendly voice you hear on the phone when you call asking about camp! In her free time Teresa loves to be outdoors, often catching a stray cow of hers that has wandered out of the pasture.

Camp Caretaker (Year-Round)

Terry Sweet

Terry came to camp in 2014 as our assistant caretaker, and we are now happy to call himDSC_0513 our year-round caretaker-guru. Terry will fix anything with a smile, and  you might even find him wearing is 4-H Tall Terry shirt. In Terry’s words: “There are no problems, only solutions!”. When not making camp beautiful for all our renters and campers, you can find Terry enjoying the great outdoors.

He found a home at Camp Overlook as Director of Environmental Education and now leads the summer camp. He is in charge of the daily operations of camp during the summer session and directs staff while they work and play alongside the campers. Together with his staff, he aims to provide a safe environment and create memorable experiences for all who arrive through the red gates of Camp Overlook.
