Gordon Atkins – Nature Director

"I used to work at Andrews University and volunteer at Camp Au Sable – now I work at Camp Au Sable and volunteer at Andrews!” On Jan. 1, 2013 I became the Camp Naturalist. Interestingly, my very first job was Camp Naturalist for Camp Frenda in the Ontario Conference - his was where I began my interest in telling interesting “Nature Nuggets”. My duties at Camp Au Sable include reinvigoration the Nature Center, developing and running an Outdoor Education program for the Michigan SDA schools, mentoring teachers, organizing summer camp, leading tours on and off camp. “God’s second book is so amazing and it reaches everyone.” Whatever the age-group, I will try to find something that interests everyone. Be careful not to step on my next nature story! My wife Karen is the craft director and in charge of special projects. We have two grown children and one grandchild!"
