We are thrilled to introduce our new Director of Programs and Operations for SC Camps & Retreat Ministries! We are welcoming Bob Kahle and his family to the SCCARM family starting in October. Bob will be serving all three camp properties within SC Camps & Retreat Ministries: Asbury Hills Camp & Retreat Center, Camp Providence Day Camp, and Sea Islands Camp and Retreat Center.
Bob and his wife, Tina, join us from Houston Texas. He and Tina have two adult sons. Tina has worked alongside Bob at every camp he has served. She is now a Physical Therapist Assistant. Bob grew up in Chicago and attended Our Savior’s United Methodist Church. He graduated from George Williams College in Downers Grove, Illinois. That college was actually named after the creator of the YMCA!
Bob has experience serving camps across the country including camps in Tennessee, Texas, Michigan, North Carolina, California, and New Jersey. He has also served on the regional and national camping conferences for the YMCA.
When Bob isn’t at camp, you can find him with his family hiking, traveling, talking and telling stories or reading.
“I was built to serve and I am at my best when I am serving in God’s Kingdom. I am attracted to South Carolina Camps and Retreat Ministries because of the focus on camping and how we can use the camps to change lives for the better. I am a product of camp as I attended a camp each summer during my childhood and became a counselor as soon as I was able. Camping provided me with the role models that would help shape my life and I will forever be in it’s debt. I know camp works because it worked in my life and the lives of my boys. Camp is as close to God’s Garden as I have been able to find and we all have a role in caring for the garden and its inhabitants.”
We are so excited to welcome Bob and his family to our SCCARM family!
