Favorite Bible Verse: “If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,’ even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.”  – Psalms 139: 11-12

What are you looking forward to as a director: Everything about camp excites me, so choosing just one thing seems nearly impossible. I am excited to build on the legacy of love and celebration of self that has been so carefully crafted over 71 amazing years. I am honored to pass on the joy I’ve found in being truly me and truly loving God and nature. I want this summer to be silly and loud but also meaningful and lovely. I’m looking forward to journeying toward a messy masterpiece where each of those things is equally loved and celebrated.

Campers are going to have such a great time hanging out with Ashley! Make sure to register for your spot!
