Marissa is our 2017 APD/Volunteer Manager!

May 18th, 2017


My name is Marissa Minnick and I will be working with all of Camp Riverlea’s Volunteers (Orcs) this summer as Volunteer Manager! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Camp Riverlea this year. After spending summer 2013, 2014, and 2015 as a Canoeing and Kayaking counselor at Riverlea, last year I was taking graduate courses at Appalachian State University, and just graduated with my Master’s degree in Elementary Education! I am excited to return to camp with this new lens on the role of education and leadership in camp, and to be back in a space that is as inviting and inspiring as a summer camp.

The Camp Riverlea staff is such a special team, and I cannot wait to welcome first year Orcs as well as returners to another exciting summer at camp! Every member of our staff helps make Riverlea a place for personal growth and new friendships, and each summer brings a fresh opportunity to learn something new. Riverlea’s Volunteers are an essential part of camp’s framework; I am excited to help support them as we work together to create a memorable experience for campers. Please feel free to reach out if you have questions about camp and this upcoming summer!
