Meet the Camp Director for Summer 2019
2019 Camp Director- Marty Jellison
Marty Jellison grew up in Ohio, attending summer camp since he was eight 8 years old. When he was 16, he started working at camp, and he’s not stopped serving at camps since then! He attended Cedarville University to further his love of ministry and the Lord by completing a major in youth ministry and minoring in music.
While at Cedarville, Marty heard about Camp Patt for the first time and was a camp counselor here in 2011. “That summer heavily influenced the way I thought about camp activities,” he said.
Since college, Marty served with a few camps, leading one for five years, and in the summer of 2015, he met his wife, Ruth, at camp. They were married the next year, reminding everyone that “A camp romance is S’more than a crush.”
In August 2018, the Jellisons moved from Ohio to Cumberland, Maryland. There, they began teaching at Calvary Christian Academy; Marty teaching Bible classes, and Ruth teaching writing, speech, and technology (among other things).
Marty and Ruth are so excited to be serving together with the Camp Patt family for one incredible summer. They know the power of camp and can’t wait to see what God does in the lives of the campers and families here at Camp Patt.
