St. Crispin's Conference Center+ Camp | Program Director

Beth is the Program Director at St. Crispin’s Camp+ Conference Center in Wewoka, Oklahoma. Her only experiences with camp as a kid were outdoor education in 6th grade where she cried the entire time and a few weekends of Girl Scout camp… which once only lasted one night due to a raccoon that didn’t understand boundaries.

After graduating from Gannon University with a degree in Communication Arts (concentration in new media), she took a 180 and decided to do a year of service…. at summer camp. She came to realize all the fun she missed out on while working at Camp Gray in Wisconsin and has worked in other camping programs in Ohio and Vermont before landing in Oklahoma.

Beth began volunteering with Crisis Text Line in 2016 and has helped over 500 texters in Crisis. In her spare time, she enjoys drinking coffee, reading and snuggling with her pup, Tucker
