Eric started going to Camp Wyoming when he was in fourth grade. He came as a summer camper all through high school and even completed the L.I.T. (Leader’s in Training) program. He came as a volunteer in 1993 and worked as a summer staff member in 1994 and 95.
Eric made the decision to be on the Camp Wyoming board because he believes that camp provides valuable experiences, and he wants to help share that with other people. He also wants to ensure that each camper who comes has a positive and memorable experience. Eric loves the land and the location of Camp Wyoming. In his words, “We’re very fortunate to have over 380 acres of God’s creation set aside for worship and reflection.” He also values the people and the friendships he’s developed throughout the years at Camp Wyoming.
