Camp & Retreat Ministry welcomes new site staff

By Anne Horton, 
Director of Camp & Retreat Ministry

The Camp & Retreat Ministry office would like to introduce the conference to two new staff positions.

Joe Sprenkle, Director of Program for Camp Penn. Joe is a native of Pennsylvania and grew up attending Camp Penn. He brings a wealth of experience from camper, counselor, instructor, program coordinator, to site director for a technology-based camp. He has taught everything from environmental studies, to backpacking, rock climbing and canoeing. Joe is excited about this new adventure in programming for Camp Penn. He looks forward to meeting and working with campers, staff, camp deans, and parents who have a huge heart for Camp Penn.

Russell (Rusty) Gift Jr., Director of Facilities and Operations, will be serving two sites, Camp Penn and Mt. Asbury. Rusty is a native of Pennsylvania and presently lives in Waynesboro. He and his wife have two grown children. Rusty has a strong background in hospitality and facilities and operations management. He at one time worked with Rhodes Grove Retreat Center in Chambersburg. Thus, he is familiar with the impact camp and retreat ministry has in the lives of people of all ages.

Joe and Rusty look forward to meeting you. Whether you are at Camp Penn or Mount Asbury, exciting times are ahead. Come be a part of the fun.
