Baptist Camp Lebanon is a very special place to Hilary. His family has been involved with Baptist Camp Lebanon since camp was opened. His grandfather volunteered as a worker back in the 50s. His mother attended camp in the 50s and 60s.
Even before Hilary was old enough to be a camper, his parents brought Hilary to Family Camp. From the early 80s on, Hilary has attended, worked and served different positions at Baptist Camp Lebanon.
In 1994, he switched from attending camp to working as a summer staffer on Kitchen Crew. In 1995, he was the Kitchen Crew leader, and stayed in the position until 1997. In 1998 and 1999, he volunteered throughout the summer and during the off season in various roles. In 1999, Hilary was a member of the Camps, Conferences and Retreats board, and in January of 2000, he assumed the role of Full time Site Manager.
During the summer, Hilary manages the support staff. He also teaches archery. In 1996, Hilary created the camp website which he still maintains today.
