The Camping Board of Stewards and The Twinlow Board of Directors are excited to announce the installation of Kristen “Moonie” Moon as the new Director of Twinlow Camp and Retreat Center! After a nation-wide search process going back to November of 2018, we are so pleased to have hired one of our own. Kristin first came to Pacific Northwest Camping Ministries as a Lazy F staff member, and later went on to fill the position of Assistant Director of Twinlow Camp.
As a kid growing up in Wyoming, I attended Baptist camps. It was there that I found the perfect place to nurture my love of Jesus and nature. I was always somewhat of a “wild child” and camp served as perfect outlet for me. Camp also provided a strong Christian community to be a part of. Fast forward to my college years when I became a summer staff counselor at Lazy F Camp & Retreat Center in Ellensburg, WA. It was at Lazy F that I first heard the call to ministry. It was through that call that I soon found myself moving to North Idaho to work at Twinlow Camp & Retreat Center as Assistant Director. Five years later I am now blessed to be transitioning into the role of Director.
When I am not working at camp I spend most of my time in the outdoors either rock climbing, surfing (yes, we surf in North Idaho), or snowboarding. I have always been able to connect to Jesus, myself, and others best when playing outside. Because of that I am excited to be serving as Director of Twinlow Camp!
Kristen brings the perfect mix of experience, energy, and vision to her new role as Director of Twinlow. Please join us in welcoming Kristen!
