Executive and Programs Director Brandon Perry and wife Kate have served at Solgohachia for over ten years now with their two children Jaden and Elliana. Both "grew up" at summer camps and spent years as campers and then as counselors. Back in 2011, they helped develop and design the current iteration of our Camp Solgohachia program and they bring invaluable experience to every detail. They've also done various church and missions work during that time and love investing in the lives of the campers and counselors both!
Michael and Karen Brymer live on the mountain with four of their seven children, Amanda, Addy, Aidan, and Avery. Michael serves as the campus director overseeing daily operations, property management, and along with Karen hosts rental groups that come to the mountain. Michael and Karen both grew up in families working as missionaries; Michael in Mexico and Karen in Guatemala and have been working in ministry in some capacity all of their 33 years of marriage! Doing ministry in the context of relationships and as a team is paramount to them, as is the importance of passing down their faith to the generations that follow.
Our counselors are hand-picked students who embody the values of humility, faithfulness, and honor. They are our most important asset and we put tons of time, energy, and effort into training them well to take extraordinary care of your campers. These energetic followers of Jesus pursue the Kingdom with a deep passion that creates an environment that is radically freeing and wildly fun! Regardless of the specific role they play during a given week of camp, counselors take time to get to know each camper individually and they'll quickly become your camper's favorite thing about camp!
