This dynamic team is lead by our Camp Director Marjie "Tweety" Randall who has been involved at Cedarbrook Camps for over 20 years, starting at Oregon Camp Cedarbrook in 2001 where she has been the Camp Director since 2011. Marjie joined the Southern California team in 2022 and became our director in 2023.
Marjie received her B.A. in Elementary Education in 2007 from Eastern Washington University and worked as an Educator and Early Childhood Director in Washington and Oregon until 2021. Marjie is currently the Director of Operations for the Association of Cedarbrook Camps, where she serves all the Cedarbrook Camp ministries throughout the United States and Canada.
Cedarbrook Camp Southern California Staff are entirely volunteer. These individuals take time out of their busy lives to share God's love and spend time with kids at Camp. All staff go through an application process that requires them to sign our Statement of Faith and pass a background check, as well as attend staff training.
We couldn't do this ministry without our amazing volunteer staff. Some of our staff have been volunteering for over 30 years and many started coming to camp as campers. All our staff have camp bird names, which is based on 1 Kings 17:2-16 where Elijah was fed by birds in a Cherith (our original name).
I go by “Kiwi” at camp and have been coming to camp as staff since my adult daughters were campers. I have been counselor and Division Directors, but currently at camp, my job is to assist the Camp Director in any way needed and to keep the camp program running smoothly. I also function as the support person for our program staff, making sure they have the needed supplies to carry out the daily activities of camp. My favorite part of this job is to be able to encourage, come alongside, and PRAY for each staff member❤️
Hi! My name is Cooper, and I’ve been coming to Cedarbrook Camp Southern California since I was seven years old. I started out as a camper, went through the life-emboldening CILT program, and now serve on staff each year. I’ve filled lots of different roles over the years from counselor to activity leader. I love getting to plan fun and exciting activities for campers to show them the beauty of God’s natural world and the love He has for them. Cedarbrook is special. We live out that all of our life is for Jesus, from sunup to sundown, we worship him in each moment of the day. In this way, Jesus becomes not just a distant figure but a friend.
Hi! I'm Painter. There is so much that I love at camp that I try to do a little bit of everything. Most of the time my official job is a Division Director. I adore working with the pathfinders because so much of the camping experience is new for them. Star talks and gazing at all the stars might be my favorite activity, closely followed by cookouts with S'mores and doughboys!
Greetings from Timberwolf! I’ve been coming to camp for a long time and have been nature specialist, counselor, division director, and director. I also like to teach archery. I will be at camp to help with CILT training and will bring Klondike (the snake) up for a visit. I can hardly wait for archery and hiking and singing and exploring the stars at night (and maybe Marshmallow Wars!!) I look forward to seeing you soon!
