There is not a more refined, serious group of people than the staff at Crooked Creek Christian Camp. This is a group of people that take their job very seriously. The focus, dedication and determination of these fine folks is second to none. None of them would ever consider hiding a rubber snake to surprise one of their co-workers. Seriously, these folks have 50 combined years of service to Crooked Creek Christian Camp.We work hard, but we like to goof around, too. Come see us, we'd love to have you here!
