Greetings friends! I am immensely passionate about camp and have a lot of experience as a camper, counselor, coordinator, and Director. My role is to assist in scheduling, and planning for summer camps and other events. I am also responsible for promotion and communication.
I live in Pella, IA and am very involved at First Baptist Church. I am a worship leader and work with the youth group. I really enjoy planning and traveling to spread passion and interest about camp ministry. If you are interested in having me come to your church or youth group send me an email and I will get you on the schedule.
I look forward to seeing how we can make camp grow and seeing how we can partner with churches and organizations in surrounding communities to make a big impact in the lives of young people and families.

SHAWN AND TERESA OTT
Camp Manager/Hospitality Coordinator
Shawn and I have lived in this area most of our lives. We have been married for almost 11 years. We are very active members of Floris Baptist Church in Floris Ia. We are very involved in youth ministries (elementary through high school). Shawn and I both grew up in broken homes and truly feel for the lost youth in our crazy world. God has given us a deep passion and burden for youth. We are so excited about all the new opportunities being camp managers will mean for us to connect with kids that need someone to care. Shawn is Assistant Fire Chief and training officer for Floris Volunteer Fire and Rescue. Shawn also serves as treasurer on our church's trustee board. Shawn is a very avid bow hunter.
I'm very involved in our church's ladies mission group and serve on our nursery and cleaning teams. I also help with fire department fundraisers and any other way I can to help. I homeschool both of the boys which is both challenging and rewarding. When I have time I enjoy reading and cooking and baking. I also enjoy spending time with my family and church family.
Please know that your prayer support for Forest Lake is so important and appreciated. We look forward to serving you here at Forest Lake in the future. Please feel free to call us with any questions or just to say hello.
Hello, camp friends! I’m a camp enthusiast myself and would love to see all of you at our camp someday. I attended Forest Lake when I was younger, and it transformed my life as a person, but more importantly, as a Christian. I’ve always loved the atmosphere of the wilderness, and camp is the perfect place to encounter and connect with God.
This summer is my third year as a camp employee, and I can’t get enough of it! I work as a cabin counselor and as a lifeguard at the lake. Essentially, my role at camp is to help make sure you (as a camper) have a good experience during your time at Forest Lake.
During the school year, I attend college as a music education major. I hope to be a teacher, and working with kids is one of my passions! Not only do I enjoy teaching subject matter, I love helping students grow as individuals – inside and outside of school.
I’m looking forward to seeing all of your smiling faces at camp this summer because camp isn’t quite as fun by myself!
