Elementary CAT Camp
This event runs concurrently with CAT Camp with creative programming specially designed for elementary ages.
Meet your Dean, Rev. Jon and Anne Bell
Meet your Dean, Katie Gascoine
Katie first attended Creative Arts camp over 20 years ago when her father, Jim, became a dean. Throughout the years she has attended as a youth camper, a counselor as a young adult, and now as a dean. She loves returning every year to see her camp family and to see how the campers have grown in their faith and creative abilities. Outside of camp Katie is involved with her church on the Leadership Board, with several committees in the Western PA conference of the United Methodist Church, and also serves as a trustee on the Jumonville Foundation. In her spare time you can find her cross-stitching, quilting, or watching hockey and cheering on the Pens.
Meet your Dean, Megan DelGrosso
Megan DelGrosso is the current Youth Director at Ingomar Church and has served in Youth Ministry for 3 years. This is her second year as a Dean at CAT Camp, but has attended CAT Camp as a camper or counselor almost every year for the last 20 years and this year has the joy of attending with her husband, new daughter, parents, and siblings - it is a family affair! CAT Camp is Megan's favorite week of the year because one of her favorite things to do is to spread the love of Jesus with others.
Meet your Dean, Jenn Phillips
Jenn was a camper as a child attending both Wesley Woods and Jumonville. The camps made such an impact on her life she kept coming back as a counselor from summer of 2007-2014 before being asked to be a Dean in 2015, and here she is today! Jenn is a Resident Director (not an RA in a Resident Hall but rather she supervises the RAs) at Miami University. She absolutely loves working in higher education with college aged students where they are having their 'coming of age moments' in life, so getting to see all of it unravel is amazing! She advises Kappa Phi, a Christian sorority on campus with a group of ladies who love Jesus where they worship & study each week together. She is also one of the Youth Group leaders & child care members at Grace United Methodist in Hamilton, Ohio.
