Staff Reflections - Hospitality Edition

Ellie Molnar, Hospitality and Outreach Director


However far we find ourselves off the path God intends for us, He has a way of always bringing us back. Back to our home, our roots, where we are best used to share our Father’s love and glorify Him.

Ribbon Cutting

Thank you to all who joined us at the ribbon cutting to celebrate Brown Retreat Center!

Thank you for cookies baked by Ellie Molnar (P.H.O.C. Hospitality Director) and seasonal decorations arranged by Vicky and Brianna Swiger (Brianna is a summer staff member, former camper, and she and her mom currently sit on one of P.H.O.C.'s three volunteer committees).

Summer Camp Endowment

Early this spring, the Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp board approved the release of $2,200.00 for the camp's Legacy Fund to send more kids to summer camp in 2017. As a result, 14 children attended an incredible adventure that seemed out of reach only a few months ago.

I just wanted to say "Thank you"...

I just wanted to say “Thank you” for another wonderful week of camp for my son. He had a great time and could not stop talking about camp the whole way home.  I am looking forward to doing the kindergarten camp next year with my daughter, if it’s still offered. She was quite bummed she couldn’t join her brother(she’s only 4) and she asked me all week when she could go to camp.

You all made such a wonderful impression on our first visit 4 years ago that we will ALWAYS return to PHOC!   Thank you also to  your wonderful staff and counselors and all the hard work they put in all summer. We are blessed to have these wonderful people touch our kids’ lives! So again, a big Thank you to you and your staff!
