We are excited to announce three new additions to the Lutherhill Staff.
Elise Riggs, Program Director – Elise grew up in Houston and then, despite being a Kansas Jayhawk fan since birth, broke family tradition by attending Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas. She graduated in May 2013 with a degree in History and a minor in Religion, the epitome of a liberal arts education. She has spent the past four summers on staff at Lutherhill and is looking forward to continuing her journey in outdoor ministries. She is eager to begin this opportunity at Lutherhill Ministries and feels blessed to be joining this community as Program Director. When she is not hanging out with campers, she enjoys cooking and trying out new foods, exploring hiking trails, and discovering how to use her new camera!
Dani Tripp, Program Intern – Dani grew-up in Sarona, WI on a dairy farm where she learned how to milk a cow by the age of seven. So if you need help with cows, she’s your gal! She lived there for the majority of her life and then traveled to Minnesota to continue her education at Bethany Lutheran College. She graduated with a Biology/Exercise Science Degree in hopes of doing something in the medical field. Instead, she found her true passion in outdoor ministry when she worked at a camp in California for a few years. Then she found Lutherhill and quickly formed a new camp family. Even though this was only her first summer experience with Lutherhill, she has enjoyed making it her home. She is also excited to be continuing her outdoor ministry experience at such a wonderful faith-based camp.
Curtis Bradbury – Having attended camp as a youth, Curtis decided to become a counselor, like the ones who impacted him. He’s served two years as a counselor and then accepted an Internship at Mt. Cross Ministries, Santa Cruz, CA before coming to Lutherhill. He spent this summer as the Adventure Guide and fell in love with Lutherhill. He plans to attend Texas State University and major in Outdoor and Recreation so he can continue to pursue his love for outdoor ministry.
