It is with enthusiasm that we’re announcing an exciting development in the year-round work of CLC. This past August, the CLC Board of Trustees voted to consolidate operations from various’ year-round staff members’ homes to the camp, to enable CLC to more fully utilize the camp facility and create a cohesive management team.
At the same time, the CLC Board voted to add 2 members to the full-time staff roster. Ian McLeland, a long-time camper and staff member originally from northern Virginia and more recently southern California, was hired as the new Assistant Director for Programming. He will be overseeing the facility’s programs and rentals during the fall, winter and spring, and will continue to provide a pivotal role during the summer.
Lille Thompson, originally from Long Island, and more recently southern Utah, also a long-time camper and staff member, has been hired as the Assistant Director for Marketing & Administration. She will be taking care of summer camp enrollment, office managerial duties, and marketing efforts, and will be the person who most camp families will correspond with as they develop their summer plans at Crystal Lake Camps.
Both Lille and Ian will work directly for Nathan Bowen, CLC’s Camp Director. Liz Hall will continue as Executive Director and will be focus her time on fundraising, development and CLC’s Capital Campaign, so that CLC can continue to occupy its current location and to offer a multicultural summer camp program that is accessible to campers from around the world and all over the US.
We are very excited about this development and these additions to CLC’s year-round staffing as it will support CLC in the achievement of our mission to “provide a world of adventure with spiritual growth” year round. This is a wonderful affirmation of CLC’s long-term commitment to serve the youth in the Christian Science movement, and we’re excited for the good this new team will bring!
