Sanctuary Kamp Director

I grew up as a director’s daughter, became a camper, then a counselor, and now have been the director for over 5 years. I live in Sedalia with my 6-year-old daughter Ellie who will be able to come to Kamp with me for the first time this year! I am a 3rd grade teacher but also have my Masters in Administration and help my school principal a lot. I attend First United Methodist Church in Sedalia and am very active there. I am in charge of the Pettis/Johnson County Relay For Life and love helping raise money to see more birthdays. I love the St. Louis Cardinals, dogs, going to the beach, watching Disney movies, being active in my church, and being with my family and friends.

The number one question we received at camp was “What about this Bible?”  We gave away over 20 Bibles at camp.  We had on little girl who came, and her friend’s mom came and talked to me.  She said that her daughter was embarrassed because she had to borrow her grandmother’s bible for camp, and it was awful because it had all these old words in it.  Not only did we give her a Bible, but we gave her little brother a Bible as well.  And I just loved it because they had been coming to Upward Basketball but had never come to church.  It wasn’t until after camp that they felt confident in doing that.

Why do I return to Kamp? "It's more for the love of others. It's easy to go somewhere just because you can but you won't really achieve or learn anything by doing so. To go somewhere you love and are loved by those who understand you and can relate, that's a treasure. By going to a place like that you learn from others and , in turn, they learn from you. "
