John Menendez first came to Camp Timberlake as a 10-year-old camper in the summer of 2001. During his summers as a camper, counselor and program director, camp became a second home to him and he is thrilled to now serve as Director. John grew up in Atlanta, Georgia and graduated from Vanderbilt University where he met his wife, Catherine, who shares his passion for summer camp and serves as co-director. Along with their son, Peter, (and dog, Taylor), John and Catherine are all summer, all the time.
For John and Catherine, Timberlake is home, and they want every boy to feel the same way.
The Boyd family has owned and operated Camps Timberlake and Merri-Mac for over sixty-five years. Adam and Ann still have as much fun as the campers, and their three children now serve on staff with them.
Adam and Anne met while on summer staff at Merri-Mac. After graduating from Wofford College, and later earning a M.Div. from Reformed Theological Seminary, Adam returned to camp where he served for ten years as the Timberlake Director. In the fall of 2001, Adam began directing Merri-Mac also. Ann holds a B.A. from Converse College and shares Adam’s role as Camp Director. Their two boys, Joe and Hank, are Timberlake counselors, and their daughter, Mary Page, serves as assistant director at Merri-Mac. Together they are committed to sharing summers of fun and growth with camp age children.
