YEAR ROUND STAFF
Ben Radley- Executive Director
Hi, I'm Ben Radley, the executive director here at Pleasant Hill. I'm originally from upstate New York, good old rural dairy farm country. I have a degree from West Virginia's Appalachian Bible College, in Bible and Camp Ministries. I've been doing camp, and camp stuff for over a decade now. I started at PHOC as the program director in 2008 and in 2012 was promoted Executive Director. My wife Chelsea is just as crazy about camp as I am; we have been married 9 years, and have two kids, Kaden 6, and Cali 3. I love all things camp, the out-doors, everything from hiking and skiing, to camping and boating. Locally, I'm active at our area ski patrol, and attend Westwood Alliance Church in Ontario. My responsibilities here include the evaluation and hiring of summer staff, training, and the implementation of our multifaceted summer camp program, plus whatever else needs doing!
Penny Swindall- Office Manager
Hi, I'm Penny Swindall, I have been married more than 26 years to the love of my life, and together we have three beautiful children. Danielle is twenty-three, and studying in Texas; Jerrod is nineteen, and a talented musician; and Karlee Beth is thirteen, and my dreamer. Although my life is not perfect, it's a good life, and consider myself blessed beyond measure!
I have been with PHOC since 2006 and when I took the job, I honestly had no idea that I would fall in love with camp the way that I have. A few of my responsibilities are to manage the office, take registrations, answer questions, and assure nervous mommies; but the best part of my job is giving out lots of hugs. That's why they call me Momma Bear, and I'm honored to be a part of this ministry we call Camp!
