I am honored to serve as your Camp Wyandot, Inc. Executive Director and Overnight Camp Director. Since 2012, I have enjoyed being the Wyandot Overnight Camp Director, and in 2016 I also became the Executive Director. I grew up in Camp Fire and went to Camp Wyandot as a camper, CIT, staff member, camp director and council district director. I left and directed camps in 4 states and Malaysia, and served on the national staff of Camp Fire, USA and ACA. I have had the pleasure of teaching Camp Director courses around the world for the International Camping Fellowship.
After moving back to Ohio in 2015, I am adapting to changes, reconnecting with old friends and making new young ones. I truly appreciate the solid background Camp Wyandot gave me. I love the opportunity to play a part in impacting childrens’ lives and helping create new memories for everyone. I know there will are some challenges to face but I look forward to Camp Wyandot Inc.’s exciting future.
After driving a schoolbus for 27 Years, the last 15 at New Albany – Plain Local Schools, and after 20 years of running my own tiny non-profit, I retired to care for my mother in my home for 4 years. In the challenging fall of 2019, I found Camp Wyandot in need of an Office Administrator and was happy to join the team. My experience with office procedures, amateur web design, non-profit work, love of nature and kids, make this a perfect new challenge for me, and I love the work I am doing to help families send their children to camp!
I am a Monarch Butterfly Activist, and in summer, I enjoy prairie and native plant gardening.
Charles Woodrum Jr.
Camp Otonwe Director
I am a music teacher with a lifetime of camping experience. I have been affiliated with numerous camps in Ohio, New York, and New England.
My desire to become a music teacher is rooted in the singing in the camp dining hall and at campfires.
I began as director of Camp Otonwe in 2017, and I am enjoying sharing my experiences in Otonwe, and building the camp’s traditions and outreach, while managing the challenges that come our way.
I’m excited to be developing our new and fun program, rooted in the the long history of Camp Otonwe & Camp Wyandot.
