Joe Costner, Camp Marriott Director
Joe first camped at Goshen at Camp Olmsted in 2009 and 2010 before camping at Beautiful Camp Marriott in 2011. He loved Goshen so much he decided to work there, working at Camp PMI for seven years in a variety of roles including Scoutcraft Instructor, Scoutcraft Director, BB Gun Director, Facilities Director, and Program Director. When the opportunity arose to return to Goshen last summer, he jumped at the chance to be the Facilities Director at Beautiful Camp Marriott. Heading into his 9th summer on Goshen staff and first as Camp Director, Joe is looking forward to improving Marriott’s program and making the camp experience as great as possible.
Liam Glass, Camp Olmsted Director
This summer will be Liam’s Twelfth year on the Goshen staff and his first as the Olmsted Camp Director! During his time at camp Liam has worked in Ecology, Culture Craft, and served on admin staff for three years at Camp Olmsted. Liam lives in Virginia and is an avid birder. Liam’s favorite Goshen memory is the Wilderness Survival merit badge that he took as a camper; the group went on an Overnighter where they slept in primitive structures underneath the stars. Working with Scouts is a deeply gratifying experience for Liam and he looks forward to using the methods of Scouting to positively impact the lives of young people this summer.
Drew Goshorn, Camp Ross Director
