Sarah Ann started attending Camp Cherith as an energetic young elementary student. She graduated CILT and has served as a counselor, divisional director, assistant director, and stepped into the role of director in 2007.
Sarah Ann loves adventure and has traveled to 35 countries on mission’s related trips and other adventures. She also spent over 10 years traveling with a school assembly program called LifeChoices. The LifeChoices program was dedicated to instilling hope, respect, and resilience in students through dynamic school-based multimedia presentations centered around the life of Rachel Joy Scott, who was the first victim in the Columbine school shootings.
Her most recent adventure includes becoming a wife and mom! She is excited to continue the adventure of camping ministry with her new family.
At Camp Cherith, Sarah Ann’s favorite event is the traditional Tuesday night cookout where campers prepare their own food and lead the campfire activities. She loves watching the campers take on leadership roles and gain confidence in their abilities.
