About Doug Walters

Doug is passionate about Presbyterian camp ministry and brings with him a wealth of experience and creativity in his role as Executive Director. It was at summer camp, as a Counselor-in-Training many years back, that Doug came to understand that God gives each of us special gifts and talents and calls us to serve as Christ’s hands and feet in the world. In addition to his passion for “all things camp,” Doug has a passion for pizza, and makes a pretty mean homemade, from-scratch pie that rivals any you’d find at your local pizzeria.
