Andrew Nelson, Kids Camp Manager
"Camp WaterColor has allowed me to continue my passion of working in recreation. Each year, we have the great fortune to meet a lot of great kids, and working and playing with them allows me to stay young. I'm grateful that I have the opportunity to work in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and very happy that I can use over 17 years of recreation experience to create wonderful memories for our campers."
Kendra Keen, Kids Camp Supervisor
"My passion for camp started at a residential camp in Texas, where I spent 4 amazing summers. I love watching kids grow, learn, and have new experiences in such a positive environment. Camp provides me with an opportunity to do what I love and I am so thankful for that."
Salina Fountas, Camp Lead
"I've grown up on the Emerald Coast and my dream job has always been to work in WaterColor.

I love working at Camp because it has given me the chance to make amazing memories for the families."
