Gina joins Camp Fire Columbia (AGAIN!) as our Resident Camp Director at Camp Namanu. Gina worked at Camp Namanu in numerous roles for three summers before joining our Before & After School programming, where she worked for six years. The past two years she worked in real estate.

Gina has strong ties to Camp Namanu where she was a camper for 11 summers. She accredits her time at camp in helping her find her own voice and confidence, and giving her a deep appreciation for the natural world. Gina has felt firsthand the impact of Camp Fire Columbia’s programs, which has inspired her dedication to youth development and supporting intentional, kid-centered programs.

Gina gives time as a board member for the Young Nonprofit Professional Network of Portland. In her spare time she loves to hike, read fantasy novels, belt showtunes, eat brunch with her family, and play board games. Also, she’s a BIG TRAIL BLAZER FAN – RIP CITY!
