Kathleen Moyer CS, Session 1
Hello Everyone! I’m Kathleen Moyer and I hail from the great state of Michigan in the USA. I currently live and work as a Christian Science practitioner in Maple City, MI- quite near beautiful Lake Michigan. Before going into the full time public practice of Christian Science, I studied History and Communication at Denison University, and I was a camp counselor and eventually camp director for the CS camps here in Michigan. I have a deep love for the outdoors, for character growth and education, and for working with young people. Most of all, I acknowledge and recognize that camp work has always been a focused and fun way to express and experience with others my all time favorite thing- the study and practice of Christian Science and the resultant deep love of God, the Bible and Mrs. Eddy’s writings. It’s a joy to work with young people (and all people) on appreciating their true sense of self and reality based on understanding God and His creation. I look forward to working with as many people as possible this summer through our CBI online programming! Much love to you all and see you for virtual camp!

Amy Dehnert CS, Session 2
I am looking forward to meeting you all at camp!!
A little about me: I have a long history with Camp Bow Isle. I was a camper in junior high and all four of my children attended camp and/or worked as staff. Now, my grandchildren are campers. I love camp!!! It’s a wonderful setting and supportive atmosphere for growing and learning more about God. I have been in the full time practice of Christian Science since 2008 and listed in the Christian Science Journal since 2011. Prior to raising our children, I trained and worked as a Christian Science Nurse. I enjoy hanging out with my husband, kids, & grandkids, gardening, taking long walks, and paddle-boarding. But most of all I love discovering more about God’s Allness and goodness and applying what I am learning by healing.

Tay Marples
Welcome to Camp Bow-Isle: online edition. This is my 5th year on women’s staff at Bow-Isle and I am so excited to be on this virtual adventure with you all! I’ve been a long time camper at Bow-Isle and always look forward to the fun, love, and sisterhood at girls camp. I’m currently studying theatre and dance at Principia College. I love to sing and be goofy and would spend all day outside playing games every day if I could. This summer camp is coming to you. I look forward to seeing each one of you online and can’t wait to see how we all bring a little bit of home to camp this summer.

Clarice Bruch
Hi! My name is Clarice and I’m originally from Bellevue, WA. I have been a part of the Camp Bow-Isle family as a camper, and as a staff member, for many years. The loving, nurturing atmosphere of Christian Science felt at camp has been a huge blessing in my life. Though I love making my way across the ferry to Bowen, this year I’m excited to be a part of the adventure that will be camp in your home! We are all so grateful that you are coming on this adventure with us, and I look forward to getting to know you all during the session. A fun fact about me is that I’ve spent this last year living in Scotland. What’s a fun fact about you? I hope to learn it soon!

Camille Richardson
My name is Camille Richardson, and I am so grateful to be a part of camp online. Camp is where I feel most at home, where it’s easiest to glimpse my God-like self, and I love the opportunity to help others see themselves the same way. I know that experience can be felt no matter the location! Some of my favorite things are designing games and helping people learn. I look forward to seeing you all!

Bree Calkins
Hello! My name is Bree, and this will be my fourth summer as a staff member at Camp Bow-Isle. I have attended camp nearly every summer since I was 8 years old, and I definitely consider it to be a second home. I am currently majoring in Education at Principia College and I love working with kids and families. I grew up playing a lot of sports and am now on the track & field team at Principia! When I’m not running around I like reading, singing, and going to school events with my friends. Although camp is going to look a little different this summer, I am so excited to still have the opportunity to connect with you and your camper! It is going to be a creative, uplifting, and joy-filled experience.

I am currently a freshman attending the University of Washington where I hope to study Community, Environment and Planning in the College of Built Environments. I am also a pole vaulter on the track team at UW. I love all things outdoors like hiking, camping and photography.

I look forward to watching the joy, Love and friendship that each camper experiences throughout their time at camp. Thank you for sending your kids to camp this summer, I cant wait to meet everyone!

Ruby Johnson
Hello there! My name is Ruby, and I hail from Southern Oregon. I just returned to the United States after spending a semester studying Nordic education in Denmark, where I taught English in a Danish grade-0 classroom. It was an incredibly eye-opening experience, and it has given me so many ideas to bring to Camp this year. I’m also a singer, pianist, and preschool music teacher, which means that you can usually find me humming a song or practicing my music at the piano.
I’ve spent five wonderful summers at Camp Bow-Isle–three as a camper and two as a counselor–and I’m so excited to be returning as a staff member again this year. Though this summer is certainly going to be different, I know that we will find ways to make it fun, uplifting, and soul-fulfilling together. I’m excited to get to know you and to share a wonderful Camp experience this summer (hopefully with lots of singing around the virtual campfire). See you soon!
