We are so excited to introduce our new Camp Manager, Christy DeHart! Christy and her husband Joshua moved to Anacortes from North Carolina in January to be closer to family, and are loving life in the PNW. They have three awesome kids Haven - 12, Ember - 10, and Torin - 6, and are looking forward to seeing what God has in store for them at Quaker Cove. Christy will be scheduling and hosting groups and taking care of the property and buildings. Please help us welcome them, and if you are interested in volunteering, Christy would love to hear from you!
A letter from the previous Directors...
It’s hard to believe that it has been 6 years since we packed up our family and moved to Anacortes, Washington to serve as the directors at Quaker Cove Camp. In our time here, we have seen God’s provision steadily and miraculously for our family and ministry. It has been a gift and joy to be entrusted with this work. We want to thank all of you who had a part in supporting and encouraging us, working alongside us and giving us the opportunity to work with your kids and families. You have made it possible for us to continue for so long in what can be an overwhelming amount of work.
In May 2021, we were very surprised to feel God calling us in a new direction. It is bittersweet as we are sad to leave Quaker Cove, friends, and family. However, God has confirmed in our hearts that he wants to do something new with our family.
With that, we are so excited to announce that we have been hired by Twin Rocks Friends Camp in Rockaway Beach, Oregon! Karl will be working as the Assistant Food Service Director, and Liz will be working as a Baker there. We are looking forward to becoming a part of their amazing ministry and community.
We’ll be wrapping things up in Anacortes over the next month or so until we move. Quaker Cove will still be open for group and family retreats and the Quaker churches who have owned the camp since 1930 and the camp’s Board of Directors will be sure to update the website with any relevant information.
Thank you again for all your support over the years!
Karl and Liz Seume
