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.
