THE IRONWOOD TEAM
Anybody who has spent time a camp quickly realizes that the facility is not what makes the camp. The people who serve in front and behind the scenes are a vital part of the camping experiences. Over the years God has blessed Ironwood with a staff team that is willing to serve and sacrifice, learn and teach, challenge and mentor those around them. We are thankful for the staff that God has given us, but we are awed by the opportunity of being co-laborers with God. The privilege we have to see God work makes the responsibility of service worthwhile. Our hope is that Psalm 51:17 would describe the Ironwood team, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.“
