Emilee Kamps was raised in Bellingham attending Fircreek and Firwood, and working as a server in the Retreat Center Dining Room. She left for George Fox University in Oregon where she studied Organizational Communication. In her summers at college, she worked in the kitchen at the Retreat Center, and also at Washington Family Ranch with Young Life. In those settings, she found retreat and camping ministry to be something God equipped and called her to do. After graduating, she went to Michigan to work at a Young Life camp for a year and found herself homesick for the mountains, trees, and her family. She is thrilled to be able to live in Whatcom County and also have her dream job! You will find Emilee outside or at reading at Woods Coffee. She is excited about her new role and is looking forward to meeting many in The Firs Family!
