Juliette is originally from Canada, but lives locally now. She is a computer whizz and gets the jobs done quickly!
Grace has been on our kitchen team, but besides food, she also has a passion for people so she is now our Ministry Coordinator. She takes the lead role in organizing our Holiday Camp programs. Grace alongside her husband Cameron, are the go to people when it comes to our leaders here at camp.
Cameron does many things around camp but his main jobs are to host, instruct on the climbing wall, and helps Grace mentor the leaders at camp.
Les is our grounds and maintenance man. He has a wide range of skills and can fix almost anything! He has a huge job and a very long "to do" list that never seems to get shorter.
Reuben was a leader at Karakariki Christian Camp for years before joining CYC as an intern. He is now full time staff as Activities Instructor.
Brett is a massive asset around camp and helps out with a variety of stuff, whether it be hosting, maintenance or programme directing.
The majority of Nick's time is spent working on grounds and maintenance during the week. In the weekends he is your "go to guy" as he does the majority of the hosting.
James has been with us for 7 years now. He and his family moved here from Scotland and James loves to create delicious meals. He is enthusiastic and always has a joke or two on the tip of his tongue.
Nat is our 2nd chef. He not only cooks but is an essential member of our maintenance team.
