Shout-Out to Alan, my old boss at Camp Ba Yo Ca, for taking under your wing a visionary young woman who thought she wanted to be a camp director someday.

You gave me a job and an opportunity to see the world of camp management from the inside. That was huge for me. But you went a step further — you took me to board meetings with you, let me play a part in important decisions, gave me responsibilities that stretched my comfort zone. You simultaneously believed in my big dreams to run a camp, and showed me that it’s not quite as glamorous a job as I imagined.

I learned so much from my job with you, things that I’ve carried into my current camp job and will carry into any ministry or job in the future. Thanks for those valuable lessons! { and also for calling me knuckle-head every single morning. }
