Our Staff


Kristin Jessup

Camp Director

Kristin Jessup came on as Director in April 2019, just in time for the busy season! A Scott County native, Kristin grew up attending camp at Camp Lakeside and it has always held a special place in her heart. She and her husband, Dale, have three children- Piper, Trace, and Hope and they are all excited in what the future holds for Camp Lakeside.

Dale Jessup

Maintenance Manager

Dale Jessup also joined our Camp Lakeside staff in April 2019, but has been involved with the camping ministry at Camp Lakeside for much longer! During the school year, Dale teaches VoAg and is the FFA adviser at Scott Community High School. Along with his wife, Kristin, Dale has big plans for Camp Lakeside, and will make a great addition to our Lakeside family!

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.
