Announcing a new Camp Director for Wyandot. April Hoy

Hello!  I am very excited to join the Camp Wyandot community!  Growing up and living on site with my family at 4-H Camp Ohio and Recreation Unlimited gave me a deep love and appreciation for the impact of the residential camp experience.  I was a camp counselor for many years for children and adults with disabilities at Recreation Unlimited.  These experiences coupled with our small family farm, garden and spending countless hours playing in the creek, forest and meadows formed my relationship with the natural world. I was privileged to share this appreciation with thousands of children and adults during my 16 years as the Camp Director and Education Director at Stratford Ecological Center, a working organic farm and nature preserve.   I have been honored to serve on the Leave No Child Inside of Central Ohio, Board of Directors for three years.  My personal and professional experience has reinforced to me the importance of environmental education and outdoor experiences for the healthy development of children.  I believe it is the inherent right of every child to develop a relationship with the natural world.

I am excited to meet all the retuning staff and campers and to meet those who are new to Camp Wyandot! I can’t wait to learn all the traditions that have made Camp Wyandot a magical place for so many!
