CounselorNew Staff

Elly worked at the Conference Center last summer & is excited to experience another side of the Ridgecrest Foundation by joining our team at Camp Crestridge!

What is one thing you can't live without?

My hoodie collection

Would you rather run a marathon, bungee jump, or go scuba diving?

Scuba Diving!

If you could live anywhere, where would it be & why?

International Falls, MN / Being only five minutes from Canada and able to ski, be on the lake, visit a national park whenever I want (that's only 20 minutes away!!), and be outside 24/7 is my ideal living situation.

If you could travel back in time to any historical event, which one would it be?

I would want to travel back in time to the grand opening of the first every rollercoaster open to the public - I'd be the first in line.

What are you most excited for this summer?

I am most excited for the chance to have uninterrupted time worshiping the Lord through being outside in His creation and being in community with the other staff and campers!

What are you praying for in anticipation of this summer?

That God would help all campers and staff alike to be themselves and worship Him wholeheartedly as they engage with His creation.
