Remember when I said you should be on the lookout for some exciting news from Vista Camps??!
Well HERE it is! We would like to formally announce that we have a new Rio Vista Camp Director! We are so excited to bring back to the team……. (drum roll please) …… Michael Hawkins!! He has hit the ground running and is on the recruiting trail looking for the best of the best in camp counselors. As many of you know, Michael is son to the beloved Freddie and Chaille Hawkins. Michael grew up at Rio Vista, was a camper and counselor, and after working out in the “real world” for a while, is returning to his roots! We are pumped that he will be leading Rio Vista this summer with all of the amazing traditions and making it the best summer ever! He brings with him his sweet and lovable wife, Elizabeth Vinyard Hawkins, and his adorable son, Hudson. I can’t wait for you to get to know his sweet family. You are going to LOVE them!
We are also SUPER excited and blessed and happy to welcome Diane Abbott, soon to be Diane Hawkins!! to the Vista Team! Diane has had many years in the camping industry and is going to join us in the next couple of months at her new camp home. I’ve already heard some testimony from friends and co-workers of hers that they are heartbroken to lose her but they are so excited about where the Lord is taking her. And I am just giddy that she will be here! Diane is someone that you can’t help but admire with her joy of life and her tender heart. I’ve literally got goosebumps typing this out. She will be helping in lots of areas of camp and will be Justin’s right hand girl. How sweet! We sure do have some good looking couples around here! You’re going to love Diane and her spunky little Taylor!
So now that you are all spinning around from excitement with all the changes at Vista Camps, go out and spread some of that Vista Love!
