Thank you Melanie!

Posted on: November 4th, 2016 by Silver Lake Mennonite Camp

Melanie Cameron put her all into the Summer Camp Director position at Silver Lake over the last two years and it shows!  Her thorough, Melanie Picthoughtful, careful leadership have left a legacy that will continue on for many years to come.

This past summer, in addition to a full workload, Melanie took on additional leadership roles to cover medical leaves.  In the midst of that, her heart for Silver Lake was so evident, making it possible for camp to run smoothly in the midst of much transition.

Jessie Castello, who worked closely with Melanie writes:  “Melanie is one of the most compassionate, nurturing, patient, generous and hard-working people I have ever known. Working with her on the leadership team this past summer was such a gift, and I could not have asked for a better mentor or role model.  Her dedication to the Silver Lake community, and to the needs of each and every staff member were incredible.  She will be very dearly missed this summer.”

Melanie sees the good in others.  She empowers leaders, has a great sense of fun, and engages in important conversations.  She’s a cheerleader- encouraging and praising others for who they are and what they offer in the Silver Lake community and beyond.

Quick to see God at work in Silver Lake, Melanie recognized the spiritual significance of camp and of her conversations with staff and campers.   She will be missed as she steps out in faith to see what God brings to her attention next.
