Steve is elated to be a part of Camp Tannadoonah for his first summer as the Assistant Camp Director, and part of the Camp Fire River Bend year-round staff as the Assistant Program Director. During the school year, he will help oversee our School Year Programs, which include Camp Fire Extended Day Program at Good Shepherd Montessori School (GSMS) in South Bend, IN, and Camp Fire After School at Sam Adams Elementary in Cassopolis, MI.
Before coming to Campfire, Steve spent 4 summers at Cheley Colorado Camps. He’s also worked at two other camps (one in New York and one in Northern Michigan), accumulating 12 years of summer camp experience. He grew up at camp, and values the incredible effects it has on our young people. When not at camp, Steve has worked in the Residence Life departments at both Interlochen Arts Academy and Northwestern Michigan College. He also spent numerous years working and supervising at local after school programs. Steve holds a bachelors degree in outdoor/environmental recreation and education. He is excited to help create meaningful experiences at both camp and our after school programs.
