The Camp Oak Hill family is excited to announce our new Camp Director- Michael Orr! Michael graduated from NC State in 2011 and was on staff with COH in 2008, 2009, & 2011. We are thrilled to have him with us and are looking forward to seeing God work through him and his ministry here at Camp. Please join us in welcoming our newest COH family member, Michael Orr 🙂

Check out Michael’s first post as Camp Director below…

“Family. That’s the word I think of when I think of Camp Oak Hill. What I picture is a huge table with tons of chairs, laughter, and plenty of food. Each chair represents a member of the Camp Oak Hill family. That chair might have somebody sitting in it, it might not. As with most family tables, there are seasons when the chairs are full, and there are seasons when they are not. Those seasons are uncertain and unpredictable. But, what I am certain of, and what I love about the family of Camp Oak Hill, is that there will always be room at the table for its members. I first sat at the table in 2008 wide-eyed and unaware of the adventure God was about to take me on. What a tough, but fulfilling, summer that was. I was hooked though. I returned in 2009, and then again in 2011. My chair at the table was still there waiting for me each time. After the summer of 2011, I thought that that was it. My time on the summer staff had come to an end. I got up from my chair and, with a heavy heart, walked away from the table. My chair, however, stayed at the table. Fast forward three years to the present time and here I am at the table sitting in my chair. I am absolutely blown away by God’s grace in leading me back home. As I sit at the table as the new Camp Director, I can’t help but think of the brothers and sisters who have come and gone from the table. You have helped shape and mold me into the man I am today. You have prayed for me, encouraged me, laughed at me, and shared life with me. I am extremely grateful for each and every one of you. As Camp Oak Hill takes the next step forward, hand in hand, we are family. Brothers and sisters, never hesitate to pull up your chair to the table and ‘taste and see that the Lord is good.’ I believe Stitch said it best when he said, ‘Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten.'”
