Blast Day Camp Mission Team

Every mission needs a team and here is the team that will be crewing Blast Day Camp this summer:

Mission Commander – Nancy Hoover

Hi!  My name is Nancy Hoover and I will be serving as Mission Commander for Blast camp this summer.  I will be leading the Program Team who will work directly with campers on a day-to-day basis, developing the themes and activities, and meeting with you face-to-face on a daily basis.  I am also involved with Black Rock Outdoor education.

I am a teacher, currently teaching at Anchor Christian Academy, a University Model school.  I also participate as a Living Historian sharing outdoor and hearth cooking techniques.  I began working with Black Rock’s Outdoor Education program in the fall of 2015.  I love hands-on education and activities with children, and especially enjoy sharing new experiences with them.  One of my favorite activities at Black Rock is Creek Studies, and I enjoy participating in archery!


Pilot – Sarah Fry

Hello! My name is Sarah Fry. I will be serving as a day camp counselor for Blast Day Camp! I am super excited to be working with your kids this summer! I grew up going to camp and I have absolutely loved being a camper as well as a camp counselor too! Although, this is my first-time counseling at Black Rock. I worked as a camp counselor at a different camp for the last three summers.

Just a little bit more about me specifically. I will be a senior in the Counseling department at Lancaster Bible College in the fall. I am passionate about working with kids. I help in children ministries as well as youth ministries at Calvary Church. I also love the outdoors and being in God’s Creation. I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you!


Mission Control – Jon Hill

Hi! My name is Jon Hill and I am excited to be a part of Blast Day Camp!  I will be working at Mission Control for Blast Day Camp answering phones, responding to e-mails, and handling all registration needs.  I am also involved with Black Rock Retreat’s Outdoor Education and Group Activities programs.

After working in youth ministry, I followed the call into camping ministry in 2007.  In 2009, I completed a “Leadership in Camping Ministry” internship at Timber-lee Christian Center in Wisconsin.  Later that year, I began working at Black Rock Retreat as of member of the Outdoor Education team.  I met my wife at Black Rock Retreat in 2009 and we now have a four year old  and a 1 year old.  My favorite activity to lead is our Creek Hike and my favorite activity to be a participant in is Laser Tag.  My favorite animal in the Nature Center is Charlie, the 7 ft Red Tail Boa who like to take selfies with me.
