Full Time Staff

Assistant Program Director
Angel grew up coming to Covenant Hills Camp as a child. She strongly believes in the value of Christian camping. Angel has served as a speaker for kid's camp since 2000. For 2 years she was the summer health officer. Angel resigned her job as a paraprofessional in the public school system to be full time here. Angel's family is a big help around camp and they are all very excited to be a full time part of such a wonderful ministry team.
She has been married to her husband Curt for 8 years. They have a daughter, Kendra who is 5 years old and a son, Ryan who is 2 years old. She is responsible for RV reservations and scheduling groups at Covenant Hills. Sue is also responsible for all other office tasks. When you call Covenant Hills, you will almost always be speaking to Sue.
Mark & Pam Johnson
Maintenance / Kitchen
Mark joined the maintenance team in the fall of 2003 after he retired from GM. His wife Pam is our Director of Food Services. Pam sees this as her area to minister and brings joy and laughter to the kitchen staff as well as our guests. Mark takes care of much of the mechanical work and also works in all the other areas of maintenance here at the camp. The camp has become a second home to them and they have become a real asset to the camp through their attitude of service and helping others in need.
Doug & Cheryl Worden
House Cleaning / Maintenance
Seasonal Staff & Volunteers
Richard began working here back in 1977 before the camp even opened. He was still employed by GM but spent many hours and days here helping to get the buildings built for the opening of camp in 1978. When he retired in 1997 from GM he came on staff full time (many weeks more than full time). Richard's handy work is found in many places around the camp. When we are not sure what to do with a maintenance problem, Richard usually gets the call.
Dan & Virginia Smith
RV Registration & Maintenance
Dan and Virginia spent a summer camping with us while he was still working. When he called the next year to reserve a spot, Doyle offered him the RV Registration job which he immediately accepted and has been doing ever since. Not only does he register our guests, he makes sure the Scag is ready to mow each morning and when no one shows up to use it he jumps into his white coveralls and is off to mow. Whether mowing, picking up garbage, or registering people, Dan sees Covenant Hills as a place he can both work and minister. It is not unusual for Dan to sense you having a tough day and say "Let's just have a word of prayer". Virginia has served with her husband in the registration booth, and has also assisted in the canteen, gift shop and office.
Ken & Merilee Owen
In 2000 Ken Owen came camping here when he came back from Arizona and has returned every year since. The only thing is his "camping" turned into a full time summer job courtesy of his wife volunteering him. Ken has spent countless hours on the backhoes and dozers. No one knows how much of Covenant Hills he has relocated. From trails to beaches to RV lots and roads, they never seem to look the same once Ken has worked them over. Ken has been involved in many areas of the maintenance program from building to welding to whatever needs to be done. When asked why he comes back his response was "We enjoy the place, it feels like home." His wife Merilee has helped out in the kitchen and office. Ken grows a garden each summer and supplies the Dining Hall with tomatoes, cukes, peppers and much more.

Ken & Robbie Schultz
You see it takes a lot of people to keep Covenant Hills in good shape for you, our guests. We apologize for any staff members we may have missed. Please let us know if we overlooked anyone and we will add them ASAP. This list does not include the large number of temporary summer staff that we employ each year.
We wanted to feature these people here because we are proud of the job they do here at Covenant Hills. They put in many hard hours. We try to keep positive "happy" attitudes, but we are human. So if you happen to come across one of us after we have had to pull a sewage pump, burned an arm on a hot pan, dealt with a stubborn computer that just wants to give us error messages, etc. etc., just give us a smile and hopefully we will be able to reflect it back to you and remember that we are here for you.
In the end, what makes Covenant Hills Camp a great place to come whether for a retreat, reunion, a campout, family camp, kids camp or RV'ing is this team of people who work together to make this the best possible place. Whether doing their assigned job or helping someone else with theirs they are doing it for God and for you. Thank you team!
