Camp Tecumseh Staff
Retreats Director/High Ropes Director
Joy is a wanderer by circumstance. Having parents who work for the airlines, she has grown up all over the country. Her latest move has brought her back to the Great State of Indiana and, more importantly, Camp Tecumseh!
Joy has a long history with Tecumseh. After being a camper, counselor, and meeting her husband, Nick, at camp, she was thrilled to bring her family with her to camp! She graduated from Western Illinois University with a Bachelor’s in Law Enforcement and Accounting and a Master’s in Recreation Administration. If you are wondering how those things go together, they don’t! But it does explain her ability to snow ski backwards and enjoy Law & Order episodes.
Joy has traveled a lot, but likes to do things that aren’t on the typical attraction list. She has spent the night in a castle, seen the world’s largest ball of twine and ridden in a blimp! Working in the Retreats Department means that Joy gets to work with a variety of groups that visit camp on the weekends.
