Keynote Speaker: Doug Tooke
We are blessed to welcome back Doug Tooke to be our Keynote speaker at camp. Doug is a Catholic speaker from Montana and is a huge asset to our team and our teens.
Music: Justin Dery
This year we welcome Justin Dery to our team! Justin was recommended to us from Doug Tooke as David Casey is no longer able to be with us as their family welcomes a new baby this summer. Justin is a contemporary Catholic/Christian artist, worship leader, singer-songwriter and youth minister. He serves as the Director of Youth Ministry and Technology at St. Paul the Apostle, in Seneca, South Carolina.
This camp cannot happen without the support of a number of youth ministers from the Oregon and Washington area and their amazing volunteers.
