Pam Saturnia

Pam lives in Muscatine, Iowa where she serves as the pastor at First Presbyterian Church. She moved into her current home just over a year ago, and it has kept her busy with various home improvement projects. She shares her home with her three year old Corgi named Louis, whom Pam admits is definitely the boss of the house. She is not an Iowa native, though. Pam was born in Illinois before her parents moved to Florida when she was just nine months old. When she was in seventh grade, her family moved to New Jersey.

Pam went to Gettysburg College where she graduated with her B.A. in Psychology and Elementary Education. She continued on to Princeton Theological Seminary to get her Master of Divinity and then McCormick Theological Seminary for her Doctor of Divinity. In her free time, she likes to travel, go to water aerobics, golf, and watch British television.

Her connection to Camp Wyoming started about 30 years ago when she became a pastor. She says, “Through churches I served I have had the privilege of come with groups of all ages to camp.  I started the Confirmation Camps.  I’ve served as a volunteer Camp Director almost 3 decades ago.  Most recently I have loved serving as a Camp Chaplain.” She has been a big advocate for Camp Wyoming.

Pam says, “I was so honored to be asked to be on the Camp Wyoming board.  Camp Wyoming is the best outreach we have in our presbytery and I wanted to be part of helping to sustain that ministry.” She loves seeing the passion the staff has for the kids and giving them a chance to experience the love of God through their counselors and other campers. It is also so wonderful to see the connection people are able to build with their natural surroundings.

Especially when you’re a pastor, it can be hard to choose a favorite Bible verse, but if Pam had to choose, she’d say Luke 15 with the parables of the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin, and the Lost Son.
