Staff 2018




Executive Director

I am looking forward to serving my third summer as Cedarbrook’s Director. Prior to this role, I worked in the development office at Wheaton College (my alma mater) for seven years. Camp is in my blood as my father and brother attended and worked at Northern Frontier and I was blessed to grow up in the Cedarbrook (then Cherith) program both as a camper, CILT, and staff member. When I’m not at camp, I live in Chicago with my husband (Brendon) and son (Owen) who arrived during camp in 2016!

Assistant Director

Hi! Camp is my home! Ok, well I actually live in Northern NJ with my dog Ronan. But camp truly is my home and family! After attending Cedarbrook as a camper, I now work full time year-round as Cedarbrook’s Assistant Director. Camp has given me a wonderful opportunity to teach and guide young girls to Christ. Through camp, God has blessed me with a group of friends that I can lean on and turn to, and with hundreds of campers, many of whom I have watched grow to accept Christ as their personal Savior. I can’t wait to see you at camp this summer!



Elizabeth Westerman


Program Team Leader

There are not many places where you make lifelong friends in a weeks time, are completely immersed in an intentional Christian community, and get to spend so much time in the great outdoors! I came to camp as a young camper and made friends over 15 years ago that I still stay in touch with today. My friendships and the faith I developed while at camp helped me survive that toughest parts of my college years. Camp has also challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and have a ton of fun doing it!  Camp has become a home away from home and it's my prayer that you will have a similar experience! This summer you will be sure to find me taking care of camp's critter at the Nature Nest. On the off-seasons I am an Art Teacher at Hawthrone Christian Academy.

I am pleased to be joining the Cedarbrook staff for my fourth summer. Spending 8+ weeks in the Adirondack wilderness has always been an enjoyable growing experience, and I cannot wait to share my love of the outdoors and horses with the girls who come to camp this year. This past year I have been working as an infant daycare teacher while applying to graduate programs. Camp is the dream place for me to take a break before beginning school courses in the fall.

Outdoor Living Skills Specialist

My love for camp was fostered at New England Camp Cedarbrook, which I attended for eight years. In 2015, the Lord led me to the Adirondacks to complete my CILT training. This will be my second year serving as the OLS Specialist and I am looking forward to what God has in store for this summer. Currently, I am a student at Appalachian Bible College in West Virginia.

I’m Abby and I’m so excited to be working at Camp Cedarbrook this summer. I grew up in China and spent most of my life doing a lot of traveling with my family. I’m currently studying Government at Connecticut College in New London where I spend most of my time outside of class studying the Bible, playing French horn, working out, and boxing. I’m so excited to spend this summer ministering to young girls and sharing the gospel!

This is my second year on staff, last year I was a junior counselor and this is my first as a counselor! I love music, and my favorite activities are archery and sailing. All around, I love spending my summers at camp and have for 10 years now. I'm starting college at Cedarville University this fall and am majoring in Worship Arts. I am excited to come back to my work at my favorite place on earth for yet another summer.


Meg Geist

Office Assistant

I'm a follower of Jesus who loves people. I love to play music, sing, knit, and write. There is a time for everything under Heaven. I pray this is a summer of togetherness and of a common purpose of showing Christ to youth and to each other.




Aubrey attended Camp Cedarbrook as a child, and loved it so much she wanted to return to spread the love and support she felt here! Currently she is a student studying nursing at Roberts Wesleyan College.




Hi everyone, I'm Cada! I'm a senior in high school and I plan on attending Messiah College next fall for Social Work. This is my second year on staff, and I am beyond excited to be working at camp again! It has played a huge part in my family's life for as long as I can remember. I think the best part of camp is having fun with like-minded Christians and learning about God in the great outdoors! ...and definitely teather-ball! 🙂
