Education: Josh and Joleanna both received a Bachelor degree from Northland International University in Dunbar, Wisconsin. Both Josh and Joleanna completed a double-major in Organizational Communication and Bible, graduating in May of 2014.
Previous Experience: Before joining the Camp Calvary family, Josh gained camp experience while counselling for a summer at The Wilds in North Carolina in 2011. He had the opportunity to coach and develop the eighth-grade boys’ basketball team during his senior year of college, while being under the mentorship of Paul Whitt, former camp director of Northland Camp.
Favorite Verse: Proverbs 25:28 “A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.”
Why Camp Calvary? God simply opened the door. Camp had a large impact on my life as a teenager, but little did I know that God would place my wife and me in a camp ministry fresh out of college. We are blessed to serve here, and as for the “Why”, God knows the answer to that much more clearly than we do. His way is perfect!
