Camp begins in
301 days!

Empowering children and adults with disabilities



Kathy Werschkul

Program Administrative Coordinator

My main job is coordinating camper registration. This means keeping track of the campers’ paperwork, billing, etc. I also do the background checks on the counselors and staff and I do most of the data input in our donor database.

I’ve been everything from a medical technologist, to a supervisor with DEX, to a travel agent before coming to work here. I’ve been involved with computers for over 40 years (think back to when a 10 megabyte hard drive was HUGE).

I was born in Minnesota, came to Portland by way of Denver and Montana. I went to college in Billings, Montana. I moved to Portland in 1962. My husband and I were married in 1964 (he’s a native Oregonian).

Favorite camp activity: Skit night

Favorite camp song: “Put the Lime in the Coconut”

Favorite camp food: Smores.

My favorite thing about camp: All of the wonderful people who work here.

Team Woodsy or Team Smokey? I’m on Team Smokey.
