INTRODUCING THE 2019 STAFF TEAM
I am looking forward to serving my third summer as Cedarbrook’s Director. Prior to this role, I worked in the development office at Wheaton College (my alma mater) for seven years. Camp is in my blood as my father and brother attended and worked at Northern Frontier and I was blessed to grow up in the Cedarbrook (then Cherith) program both as a camper, CILT, and staff member. When I’m not at camp, I live in Chicago with my husband (Brendon) and son (Owen) who arrived during camp in 2016!
Hi! Camp is my home! Ok, well I actually live in Northern NJ with my dog Ronan. But camp truly is my home and family! After attending Cedarbrook as a camper, I now work full time year-round as Cedarbrook’s Assistant Director. Camp has given me a wonderful opportunity to teach and guide young girls to Christ. Through camp, God has blessed me with a group of friends that I can lean on and turn to, and with hundreds of campers, many of whom I have watched grow to accept Christ as their personal Savior. I can’t wait to see you at camp this summer!
"Adelle"Program Team Leader
There are not many places where you make lifelong friends in a weeks time, are completely immersed in an intentional Christian community, and get to spend so much time in the great outdoors! I came to camp as a young camper and made friends over 15 years ago that I still stay in touch with today. My friendships and the faith I developed while at camp helped me survive that toughest parts of my college years. Camp has also challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and have a ton of fun doing it! Camp has become a home away from home and it's my prayer that you will have a similar experience! This summer you will be sure to find me taking care of camp's critter at the Nature Nest. On the off-seasons I am an Art Teacher at Hawthrone Christian Academy.
I’m super excited to be joining camp again this year! This will be my second full summer on staff. I was a Pathfinder counselor last year and had a blast with my campers in Pine and I volunteered for a week in 2015 to help on the craft porch. This year I will be on the craft porch full time as craft specialist and I can’t wait. I attended Camp Cedarbrook (then Camp Cherith) as a kid and have so many fun memories and working there as a volunteer and counselor has reignited my love for camp. Outside of camp I am a substitute art teacher at Northport High School. I am looking forward to seeing God working in the lives of the campers as they discover more about Him.
"Lory"Office Manager/Assistant Registrar
Hey everyone! I am blessed to say that this will be my 26th year on staff! It is here that I learned to love nature, to seek our Creator, and I have made life-long friends! I attended Cedarbrook (then Cherith) as a camper and returned after collage as an activities counselor. Since then, I've enjoyed several staff positions, including Craft Porch Specialist and Photographer. For the past few years I've been the Office Manager/Assistant Registrar. I do miss working with the girls on a regular basis, but I know that the staff are doing a fabulous job! During the school year I teach computer applications at a Christian school in NJ. I am so excited to see all the things God is gong to do this summer here at Cedarbrook!
"Chicky"Outdoor Living Skills and Fishing Specialist
I am excited to continue to be a part of this ministry as I return for my 5th year on staff. My love for camp was fostered at New England Camp Cedarbrook where I was a camper for eight years. In 2015, the Lord led me to the Adirondacks to complete the CILT program. At home in Massachusetts, I am the director of a Christian ballet school.
