Lyn Wood hired as Camp Director

The Pine Lake Christian Camp Board of Directors is please to announce the hiring of Lyn Wood as part-time Camp Director. We asked Lyn to share a little bit about herself and what lead her to this position.

I was born and raised in the Great Bend area just 35kms from Pine Lake Christian Camp. I attended camp from a young age.  I moved away to Edmonton where I took my Nurses training at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, upon graduation I worked at Camp Health, Hope and Happiness for 5 seasons as one of the camp nurses. The love of camps and the importance of the role they play in lives has never left my radar screen. I have attended many Ladies retreats through the years and have encouraged people to give camp a try. I have also lived in BC, Manitoba and Ontario. Besides working at Camp He Ho Ha I have worked at the Glenrose Hospital with Handicapped kids, Pediatric wards at the Misericordia, Grey Nuns and Health Science Hospitals. I also worked on Palliative care units in Edmonton and Winnipeg. Lee and I were married in 1992. I became a stay at home Mom with a 4 year old when we moved to Ontario and ran a daycare in my home during those 6 years.

We moved back to Edmonton 9yrs ago and I continued to stay at home and be active volunteering in my home church, Christs Church of the Meadows. I have led numerous Bible study groups, been involved in Greeting Team, Care Team, and Missions Team.

When the opportunity arose for Camp Director it seemed a pretty good fit. Those who know me well, will tell you that I enjoy communicating, some say talking! I love camp and I know the difference camp experience can make in someone’s life. It is at camp where I realized that I wasn’t alone in this walk that there were other kids from all over Alberta who were walking this walk. It was exciting to go back each year and reconnect with these friends. We had a close friend pass away a couple of years ago and one of the last things he talked to us about was his camp experiences and how those were some of the most important life changing moments for him.

I am looking forward to meeting each of you and hearing your stories and having you hear some of mine. Most importantly I want you to be involved in this life changing ministry, I want you to be a camper, a volunteer, a leader, a dean, I want you to see the camp first hand, help out at a work bee, bring your family to Family camp, I want you to invest in the future of our camp prayerfully, physically, and financially. Camp is an investment in the lives of future generations for Christ!

Lyn's Picture

Welcome Lyn!


Thanks Trevor!

There comes a point in the life of any organization that you will inevitably have to say good-bye to someone that has been an integral part of that organization for so many years. Trevor We have come to that time with our good friend Trevor Zimmerman. Although Trevor is not moving away, he is ending his time as a staff member of Pine Lake Christian Camp. Trevor has been pretty much everything at Pine Lake, camper, volunteer, staff member, it is this last role where he has put so much of his time and energy to the expansion of the Camp and God’s Kingdom for the past three years. As a Board we want to say thank you to Trevor for his countless hours, hard work and dedication to the ministry of Pine Lake Christian Camp. We will miss seeing you at Camp this Summer, but look forward to different roles of involvement in the future. Blessings on all your future endeavours as you pursue a career in Education.
