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 8 years. I live in Sedalia with my husband (so crazy to say since it just happened in February) and my 9-year-old daughter Ellie! I am a 4th grade reading and writing teacher. I have my Masters in Administration and am the President of our district’s Teachers Association. I attend Wesley United Methodist Church in Sedalia and am very active there. I am the lead of the Pettis County Relay For Life and also on the Mid-Missouri Leadership Board for the American Cancer Society. 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.

Sanctuary Kamp Director

I am the husband of an amazing wife, father of three awesome children, a healthcare provider by trade, and an unapologetic follower of Christ.  Growing up in the church and attending church camps from a young age have molded me in to the father, husband, son, brother, and Christian I am today.  I began my camping journey the summer after my 2ndgrade year and have only missed two years of camp since.  Sanctuary Kamp has been a part of my life for the last 20 plus years and has been not only where I have made lasting friendships with people that I truly hold dear, but have grown in my faith, moving closer to be a true disciple of Christ. Currently, my family and I are active members of La Croix United Methodist Church in Cape Girardeau, MO.

Sanctuary Kamp

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. "

- Keanu Elliott

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.
