Meet the Staff: Sam Richardson - Center Director

My Experience with Camp & Retreat Ministry:
 I love camp! I grew up going to camp at Wesley Woods in the Western Pennsylvania Conference and joined the summer staff there in college. I really fell in love with camp and the shared experience of temporary Christian community during my years on summer staff. I joined the full-time staff at Wesley Woods after graduating from Edinboro University in 2012 and spent four years there as the Program and Marketing Director. In 2016 my wife, Sara, and I founded Camp to Camp and had the opportunity to travel the country working with and learning from a diverse community of outdoor ministries. 

My favorite things about being involved in Camp & Retreat Ministry are:
Inviting people into the community that we have at camp! Camp is one of the rare places where we can be exactly who we are without the pressures of the world to get in the way.

Things I like to do with my family: 
We are travelers! Our little family is Sara and I and our dogs Peyton and Mabel. We love to hop in the car and head toward a new destination. We are good at getting lost, but sometimes that's more fun.

Things I like to do in my free time:
Adventure! Whether it's a day in the outdoors, traveling, or time on my motorcycle, I'm always seeking something to focus my mind.
