Camp Staff – Dedicated, Diverse, Driven

Posted on: June 8th, 2011 by CES

Every summer, students from across the country visit Oral Roberts University to participate in a broad range of summer camps that specialize in anything from athletic development to musical training to swim lessons. Camps/Facility Services Director Jed Cravalho said, “We really are the face of ORU in the summer, and our camps are a great opportunity to open the door for future students to come here.”

One of the main reasons these camps have been such a success year after year is due to the dedication of the ORU Camp Staff. This select group of ORU students spends the summer performing a wide variety of tasks to help ensure all the camps and events run smoothly. Recent graduate, Crystal “CJ” Johnson-Bryant said, “The biggest thing I’ve learned from working on Camp Staff is how to adapt. Because of the diversity of the job, every day requires something different, so we constantly have to adapt to new situations.”

With their enthusiasm and attention to detail, it’s no wonder that the Camp Staff have been one of the keys behind the success that CES has had with its’ camp clients. Jed Cravalho stated, “Our Camp Staff have had a huge impact in encouraging clients to return year after year.”
