Hi! My name is Steve Heiny. This is my third summer here at Camp Jordan and my 27th summer at a YMCA camp. I believe in the mission of YMCA summer camp and know what it can do for children and young adults. I have seen it in countless campers and even my own children. It is a place for all to grow in spirit, mind and body. Camp Jordan is truly an experience that last a lifetime.
ASSISTANT CAMP DIRECTOR
Hi! My name is Sam Aldredge. This is my first summer here at Camp Jordan. I first attended a YMCA camp with my family when I was five years old. Family Camp, outdoor education and especially sleepaway camp are my favorite camp programs. I grew up in Ohio and studied Psychology at Bowling Green University. I recently attended Disney University and worked on a Disney Cruise ship. I most recently worked at a YMCA camp in Nashville, TN. I cannot be more excited to get going here at Camp Jordan.
