Camp Managers

Paul and Loretta Van Peborgh

Growing up attending Bible Camp each summer has been an important aspect of our Christian growth. Paul grew up in Palo Alto, attending Mt Hermon Conference Center in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Loretta was raised in Eau Claire, WI and is a proud "cheese head".  She taught waterskiing for many years with her family at Woodlake Bible Camp in Northern Wisconsin.  We both strongly believe that Christian camping changes lives.  

Come and experience the beauty of the redwoods and all that Cazadero Baptist Camp has to offer. We look forward to spending time together!

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you."


Curt Gilean

Meet Chef Curt, an integral part of the Camp Cazadero team. After a tour of duty in the U.S. Air Force as a securtity policeman, he decided to returned to his first passion: cooking.

Perfecting his skills over twenty years, Curt has worked in some notable resturants like Koncti Harbor Inn in Clearlake.

Finding the Lord and his wounderful wife Cheri, they settled down in Healdsburg. Curt, Cheri and their
son Preston are members of Trinity Baptist Church in Healdsburg where they are active in the Saturday Food Ministry and Shared Ministry meals.

"Camp Cazadero is a blessing for me, I enjoy working with Christians in such a beautiful environment. Everyone here is kind and loving. I hope the Lord lets me be here for a long time to come!" Says our Chef.


Scott Brown

After being baptized on Easter Sunday, Scott was looking for a ministry to plug into since his life was dramatically changed.  He checked out Camp Caz and joined the team mid-May of that same year.  Scott loves the Lord with all his heart, soul and mind.  You can tell he has a heart of gold when a butterfly lands close to his heart. :)


Smokey & Blaze

"We are the Camp Cats since October 2016.

When we first came here, everything was new. Now we are familiar with the whole camp, but there are still lots of things to do, for example climbing these huge Redwood Trees or playing at the beautiful creek.

They say our job is to catch mice, but the main part is to please and entertain the campers!

We look forward to meeting you. Surely we will have much fun when playing together and sharing our love."
