Our Staff

Meg Anderson

Camp Director

Hi everyone! My name is Margaret, but my friends call me Meg. We’re friends now, so feel free to call me by my shorter name. I’m originally from the corn fields of Central Illinois, got my Bachelor’s in Outdoor Recreation Leadership and Management from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and now I’ve found myself in beautiful Western Kansas. Camping ministry is my calling and passion- I’m very blessed to have found this amazing ministry almost 8 years ago! When I’m not at camp, I love playing with my dogs (Lady, Max, and Lily), backpacking, painting with Bob Ross, yoga, and trying out new recipes.

Reed Rolfs

Maintenance Manager

Reed has been Maintenance Manager at Lakeside for 18 years. If Reed can’t fix it, it can’t be fixed. He is a strong Christian figure at camp. He and his wife Valorie have been married for 13 years. Reed enjoys spending time with his son Willie and his “goof-dog” Sadie.

Tiffany King

Camp Administrator

Tiffany joined our team this year and there hasn’t been a boring day in the office since. Always a ray of sunshine, Tiffany keeps us on our toes and makes everyone laugh. When she’s not at camp, she enjoys bowling league, time with family and friends, and adventure.
