Beckwith is pleased to announce that we have made some changes to our 2018 summer staffing. We believe these changes will strengthen our ability to provide a meaningful camp experience for your child while insuring proper oversight and supervision.
Summer camp registration opens Monday December 10th at BeckwithAL.com
We look forward to welcoming Rachel Gilliam to the Beckwith leadership team in January
Meet Rachel - the new Program Director
I was born and raised in Huntington, WV, and it was in West Virginia actually where I was introduced to church camp. I fell in love with a place called Bluestone Camp and Retreat when our church went there for a fall weekend, and the rest is history--sort of. I have been involved with camping ministry as a camper, counselor, and assistant program director for a total of 14 years, and it is a ministry that is very close to my heart.
I attended college at Transylvania University in Lexington, KY, and graduate school at Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC. For the past two and a half years, I have been in Fort Wayne, IN working at a Methodist church as the Director of Family Ministries. I look forward to my next chapter in the Fairhope, AL and Pensacola, FL areas. My dog, Aladdin, is especially excited to get away from the cold Indiana winters.
I am a huge Disney fan, a major Harry Potter nerd, and a Christmas enthusiast. In good millennial fashion, I also enjoy a good brunch, which I have been told is quite a popular thing on weekends in Pensacola. So I am sure I will fit right in!
I am looking forward to meeting everyone and getting the planning for summer underway!
We are excited to introduce Priscilla Condon - 2019 Summer Camp nurse
Priscilla Condon, a long-time member of the Beckwith family, will serve Beckwith this summer as the full-time camp nurse. Priscilla has served as the camp nurse in several summers past, and is excited about living at camp this summer.
Priscilla, a Retired Family Nurse Practitioner and a Master Nutritional Therapist, has a Master of Science Nursing from Vanderbilt University. Priscilla owns Path to Wellness in Foley working with clients concerning all areas of general nutrition.
Priscilla served CREDO, an eight day wellness retreat for Episcopal clergy, for ten years as a health faculty member, retiring in 2017.
We look forward to working with and learning from Priscilla as a member of the summer camp leadership team.
