10 Questions with Katie Stanczak

If you’ve called the Asbury Hills phone number, chances are very good you have spoken with Katie.  She handles all summer camp registrations and retreat group logistics.  She is also overall amazing and keeps things running smoothly.

Katie grew up in a small town just outside of Gainesville, Florida with four siblings.  She studied Family, Youth, and Community Science at the University of Florida with a minor in nonprofit management and is about to celebrate her one-year wedding anniversary with fellow Asbury Hills staffer Joseph Stanczak.

1. What is your favorite superhero?
Captain America

2. If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Hmmmm, that is a tough question. I would have to say the ability to go through solid objects – trees, walls, cars, etc.

Yes! I played soccer growing up both for school teams as well as traveling club teams.  I also played volleyball in both middle and high school.

Fall Festival 2014

We will admit it.  There were a lot of things working against us for this year’s Fall Festival.  It was very windy, and our power was knocked out.


South Carolina also saw historically early snow that morning.

However, that did not stop us from having a great Fall Festival filled with fun activities, the best batch of apple butter we’ve made in years, a bluegrass band, and money being raised for camper scholarships.
