Justin McKinney

Adventure Director

 

About

Justin is the Adventure Director here at The Oaks! He and his wife are from Northern Washington and are very excited for the sunny days ahead!

Justin and Amy grew up camping and hiking with their families and have a great passion for the outdoors. Justin participated in an outdoor leadership program called Discovery at Holsbybrunn Bible School in Sweden. Afterward he attended Northwest University in Kirkland, WA where he earned a BA in Pastoral Ministry. He is currently studying to earn an MBA. Amy attended Central Washington University where she earned a BFA with a concentration in drawing and painting. She looks forward to also someday earning a master’s degree. Amy and Justin were married in 2008 and spent the last 6 years working and ministering at a camp in Washington. Justin was the Adventure Director there and Amy, having worked in many areas of the camp, felt most passionate about her role as the Fine Arts Director. Amy looks forward to stepping into the role of Summer Arts & Crafts Director this year!

Alongside outdoor adventures, Justin and Amy enjoy reading, watching movies, spending time with family and friends (often involving board games), and traveling to new places!

Justin and Amy love camp because they believe it is a unique environment that allows people to be challenged, fostering growth and unity. Many lifelong relationships are started and developed at camp: the most important being with Jesus. By being in God's creation and experiencing Adventure activities as well as many other camp activities, lives are changed. They are incredibly honored to be called into ministry here at The Oaks.
