At Camp Ithiel, we are incredibly blessed to have an amazing group of staff and volunteers who faithfully and sacrificially serve God to see His Kingdom come through our camp. Here are the people who make things happen at Camp Ithiel.

Mike Neff - Camp and Retreat

Mike Neff, Camp Director

Mike has been faithfully serving Camp Ithiel for over 25 years as the primary caretaker and overseer of all camp operations. Mike studied at Miami University in Oxford, OH. A man of many hats, he does just about everything at camp. His leadership has profoundly impacted our ministry.

Marcus Harden - Camp and Retreat

Marcus Harden, Program Director

Marcus Harden became Program Director at Camp Ithiel in 2013. His primary responsibility is to oversee our summer camp ministry. Marcus graduated from Florida State University. He is an unashamed Batman fanatic and is passionate about youth ministry.

Board of Directors

Camp Ithiel is a not-for-profit organization that relies on our Board of Directors for leadership and guidance. Camp Ithiel’s Board operates as a policy board, drafting policies that camp staff and volunteers follow. The Board meets four times per year to discuss the ministry desires of Camp Ithiel to serve people through Jesus Christ!

Local Staff and Volunteers

For more than 65 years Camp Ithiel has relied on the faithful efforts of people who have dedicated their time, skills, and energy to lovingly care for this important ministry. From cooks and cleaners to lifeguards and mowers, we are blessed by the support of local staff and (resident and winter) volunteers who keep Camp Ithiel alive and active throughout the year. They are an integral part of our ministry.

Summer Counselors and Support Staff

Our Summer Camp Counselors are godly young men and women who have at least finished with their first year of college by the beginning of summer or are at least age 19. Year after year these are some of the finest and most gifted young adults that you’ll meet anywhere. Because we want to provide a personal-touch camp experience for each camper, we are very selective in choosing our staff. We require from each applicant an essay application, interviews and a comprehensive background check.

If you have recommendations for either camp counselor or for any of our other vital summer support staff positions (lifeguard, photographer, worship leader, summer intern), then please contact Camp Ithiel and let us know. Serving on summer staff is a greenhouse of faith development. Click here for more information.
