Natalie Oppel

Natalie is from Muscatine, Iowa, where she lives with her husband Craig and their two children: Erin and Alex. She works as an IT Business Architect for the Kent Coorporation. In her free time, she likes to play the piano and attend all of her kids’ activities.

Natalie did not grow up attending Camp Wyoming. In fact, she didn’t really like attending camp when she was a child. However, now her son Alex comes to Camp Wyoming every summer, and he absolutely loves it! Natalie is excited about the wide variety of offerings that allow Camp Wyoming to reach children and youth with diverse interests. Her absolute favorite part of the Camp Wyoming ministry is giving children and youth the opportunity to discover and/or grow in their faith This is part of what inspired her to become a member of the Camp Wyoming board. Natalie was praying about branching out from her current activities and interests to use her skills to serve in a different role. When Executive Director Kevin Cullum called to suggest that she join the Camp Wyoming board, Natalie felt like the invitation was an answer to her prayers.

Natalie’s favorite Bible verse is Isaiah 43:1 – “But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: Do not fear for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.”
