The Board of Directors at Camp Cedarbrook is a group of men and women who care deeply about the mission and vision of our camp. Many of the current board members served on staff at some point, and others are camper parents. During their quarterly meetings, they discuss matters essential to the ministry, such as the budget, trends in camper enrollment, and fundraising priorities.
Most importantly, the Board prays and plans for the future of Cedarbrook.

What is your history with camp? I started coming to camp in 1996 as a Trailblazer camper. I went up through the CILT program and joined the staff in 2001. I worked at camp for a total of 10 summers as a pathfinder and Challenger counselor for 6 years and then Challenger DD for 4 years.
Do you have a bird name? Yes, it is Skylar.
Why did you want to serve on the camp board? I wanted to be on the camp board because I was looking for a way to be more involved with/connected to camp. Also, I greatly value camp and the experience that I had and wanted to help make this possible for future generations of girls.
Current occupation/location: Currently I am a missionary working in Guatemala with Kids Alive. I work at a home for girls who have suffered physical and sexual abuse. I tutor the girls in math and lead our weekly youth group type meeting.
Favorite camp memory: There are too many to count, but my favorite memories from camp are the skills I learned and the friends that I made while a camper and then on staff. I am still in contact with many of these ladies and they are some of my closest friends.
One interesting fact about you: Something interesting about me is that I love all things spicy. Since discovering hot sauce years ago I can’t get enough and love to put it on almost anything. It is probably my favorite food.
What is your history with camp? I was connected to camp from my early years as a staff member of Northern Frontier. Then my now wife Hope (Bird name SAW) was a counselor there and we both returned for a summer in 1994 to serve.
I have since come up many work weekends and my girls have both come to camp. My eldest daughter Ariel is now a staff member, and my youngest Chloe comes each year.
Do you have a bird name? Never was given one…
Why did you want to serve on the camp board? It is my desire to be on the CCA Board so that I might be used by God to build on a foundation He has started. We have seen many young girls who experienced camp become women of God and go on to impact families for generations to come.
Current occupation/location: I am a Regional Rep for Master Wall, an Exterior Envelope Systems Company, and live in the New Holland, PA area. However, I am from Northern New Jersey. Once Jersey, Always Jersey.
Favorite camp memory: Building the Camp Cedarbrook sign that sits in the dining hall with Bill Griswold.
One interesting fact about you: Married to an amazing wife Hope, have four wonderful kids, Savannah (22), Zech (18), Brady, (15), and Chloe (12). Life is interesting with this group.
