I am thrilled to be returning to Banner as part of the year-round Leadership Team, focusing on transportation and logistics. I previously worked at Banner as a Specialty Counselor & Bus Driver. After graduating from college, I transitioned into a marketing & merchandising career in the consumer electronics & video game industry, where I have spent 13 years. My time at Banner had left an indelible impression on me. Having an opportunity to return to camp had always been a dream of mine. I am so excited that this dream is now a reality. Jamie, my wife, also works at camp as a member of the Leadership Team, and our daughter Shayna is currently a Banner camper. I look forward to sharing the Banner experience with campers and families this summer.

Every summer at Banner is more rewarding than the last. I work in the Banner office year round and spend the majority of my day overseeing day-to-day office communication. In preparation for each summer, I coordinate, train and license all of our bus drivers. I work closely with the entire Leadership Team and office staff to ensure that all of your phone calls and questions are answered promptly and to guarantee each camp day runs smoothy! Outside of my work at camp, you can find me hanging out with my husband, Justin, and our son, Lucas, who is also a Banner camper. I look forward to seeing familiar faces and to meet as many new campers as possible every summer.

At Banner, We Believe In
Each age-level and specialty area has multiple Leadership Team members responsible for working with campers and staff. Every age level is then broken down into much smaller divisions supervised by a single Leadership Team member. This structure allows members of the Leadership Team to work with their specific groups continually throughout the camp day.
Every person who applies for a job at Banner goes through a thorough, face-to-face interviewing process and multiple reference checks. Banner only hires staff members who are highly qualified to work at camp. All staff members undergo an intense, week-long orientation. Banner’s orientation includes training in safety, child development and camp procedures.
From planning and participating in activities, to supervising and guiding staff, to addressing individual camper needs, our staff is committed to ensuring that each camper experiences the best summer of their lives! With a 3:1 staff to camper ratio, our enthusiastic staff members meet the individualized needs of each camper to ensure safe and community-focused fun.
My daughter just finished her first summer at Banner and could not have loved it more! She learned independence, gained confidence, made lots of friends, and spent her days outside with the most wonderful and caring staff. We are already counting down the days until next summer!
