About Our Team

Christian Berets is a non-profit, non-denominational corporation accountable to a Board of Directors. The Executive Director is responsible for the day-to-day operations, with the support of a year-round Office Manager and Director of Outreach  (prayer partners, marketing and events).  

During the Summer months, the Program Director and Activities Coordinator provide immense support along with a medical team, counselors and others who make possible the camp sessions for those with special needs and different abilities.

We are also incredibly blessed with wonderful, on-site facility hosts, along with an excellent Chef who serves up the delicious food we all love! Additionally, Christian Berets ministry is well connected with many volunteers who offer their time and services throughout the year.
