Empowering children and adults with disabilities



Erik Marter, Immediate past board President


I come to the Board of Directors with many years of experience with the Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp.  My mother, Suzanne Marter, began working at camp when I was 4 years old and I have been involved ever since; over 43 years now!

My wife Jennifer and I own Synergo, LLC, a local resource in Portland for schools, non-profit agencies and summer camps. Synergo is an internationally recognized organization specializing in design and installation of challenge courses, zip line tours and aerial adventure parks I got my start building challenge courses and programing with youth at the Mt. Hood Kiwanis Camp in the early 80s and now use my knowledge of camping, team building, and project management to aid in the growth of the camp as a member of the Board of Directors.

When I’m not running Synergo or helping with camp I can be found building tree houses with my kids, sailing the Columbia River with my family or training for my next big triathlon.

Team Woodsy or Team Smokey? Smokey the Bear.
