“Building for Character, Not for Fame”
Camp Oak Hill is a family affair in the Glover household! Not only do I manage the 105 acres of camp, but my sweet wife Penny has helped in the kitchen, my sister Hannah has worked on the facilities team and my son Seth has served as a counselor (after many years of being a camper), I also have a lovely daughter named Caitlin. I joined the COH family after serving 8 years as a full-time firefighter for the City of Oxford. I’m also a U.S. Navy veteran and have been a volunteer firefighter for Cornwall VFD since 2001 (the primary fire protection for camp). My favorite thing about working here at Camp Oak Hill (besides all the chances to take things apart/put things back together) is getting to see God work in people’s lives.

While my official role here at camp is Kitchen Manager, I’m often known as the Camp Oak Hill “Kitchen Queen”. I’m a native of Virgilina, Virginia (just up the road from camp!), and joined the staff full time in January 2012. Since then I’ve probably cooked about a million meals, and had a hoot and half doing it. I love my husband Ronnie and we’ve been blessed with three grown children (one of whom is Amanda, our Guest Services Coordinator) and five ever-growing grandchildren. I love seeing the sunrises and sunsets at Camp Oak Hill, and I’m convinced they are the prettiest in the area! It’s been said that the kitchen is the heart of a home, and Camp Oak Hill is home for so many people, so my favorite part of the job is cooking for all the campers and retreat guests year-round!

The WHY behind all that we DO
As a staff we are often asked why we do what we do and work at Camp Oak Hill. While we each have unique answers, passions and paths that God has led us on, a pair of central desires for each of us is to see the next generation reached with the Gospel and to utilize our talents and abilities to steward and grow the gifts that God has given to COH.
“A biblical understanding of work energizes our desire to create value from the resources available to us. Recognizing the God who supplies our resources, and who gives us the privilege of joining in as cocultivators, helps us enter into our work with a relentless spirit of creativity.” – Tim Keller
From Our Executive Director
“Hey there friends, I love Camp Oak Hill! Kids and adults get to come to a place and space that is safe, fun, and the perfect environment to grow your faith in Christ. As a former camp mom I had the joy of experiencing the life and heart change that can happen at Camp Oak Hill first-hand in my two sons. I spent some time on the COH board where servant leadership and passion for reaching the next generation is lived out by so many that have invested in Camp Oak Hill. Finally over the years of serving in my current role I’ve had the privledge to see God move in many ways, through the hard times and the good times, He has given us all a beauitful gift in Camp Oak Hill and it is an honor to help shepherd that gift with the rest of the staff and board!”
