TJ studied Camp and Outdoor Adventure Leadership at Liberty University. After college, he started as an outdoor educator at Camp Hanes for two seasons before being called to SCWA to serve as the Camp Leopold Interim Director. Growing up in the small town of Cornelius NC, TJ always attended YMCA Camp Hanes in King, NC, where he first fell in love with the camp atmosphere and discovered he wanted to serve in the camping industry full-time. Every summer after high school, he dedicated his summers to learning more to prepare him for one day being a Camp Director. He worked at Camp Hanes as a counselor, and then on the leadership team as the Shooting Sports Leader for two summers. In this role, he was in charge of teaching gun safety and 5-stand to the campers and staff. He worked a summer as a tower staff member at Camp Eagle Rock in Charlotte NC, where he worked to help campers climb to new heights and challenge themselves to overcome their fears. He branched out from his normal summers at camp and served as a High Ropes Guide at the U.S. National Whitewater Center, helping guests on zip lines and challenge courses, but always knew that camp was his home away from home. TJ started his journey with SCWA as a Camp Leopold Instructor in the Fall of 2019 and looks forward to sharing his experiences and knowledge of camps with SCWA.

Hello, my name is Drake. I was born and raised in South Carolina graduating from the University of South Carolina with an associates degree. I have been working with this organization almost my entire life alongside my family in the nutritional field for SCWA. I even helped as a shooting instructor for Camp Woodie this past summer. I recently left that department and became an environmental educator for Camp Leopold in the fall of 2020. At the end of 2022, I was recently promoted to Camp Woodie’s Heritage Events Director. I am excited for this upcoming year to be able to assist children in becoming familiarized, comfortable and educated with the outdoors.
