Meet Our 2021 Staff!

Josie and John Brown

Founders and Executive Director

Josie and Farmer John bring so much love and life to camp every year. Leading games and activities, including everyone's favorite, Ranch Day at their very own 7B Ranch. LCC would not be here if it weren't for all the love Josie and Farmer John put into camp and our community every year.

Hope Reinman

Head Chef Extraordinaire

Hope has been cooking at Lost Coast Camp for longer than anyone can remember. She brings not only the kitchen but all of camp alive. She helps out when we need her but always makes sure to make it to the river. Hope is always cooking up something sweet and is the best person to see when feeling homesick, she always has just the thing to make anyone feel better. 

Moose MacKay

Assistant Chef Extraordinaire and TLC Counselor

Moose has been coming to camp for more years than anyone can count. He has been in almost every position at camp. Starting as a camper, backpacker, Junior Counselor, Counselor, and Chef. He has found his place at camp, doing two things he loves the most, cooking and backpacking.  

Tanna Wise

Program and Accreditation Director

From day camper to camper, backpacker to a junior counselor, and counselor to the director, and now to her brand new role as accreditation director. Tanna has done it all! There are some people who think about camp 4 weeks out of the year but she lives for camp every single day of the year. LCC wouldn’t be the same without her great energy, valuable friendship, organizational skills, a love for nature, and her passion for making camp great.

Moses Brown

Custodian, Prep Cook, and Camp Photographer

Moses has been apart of camp since day one. He's there every day, helping keep camp tidy, joking around with staff and campers, making coffee and prepping vegetables in the kitchen, and getting the best pictures of videos of all things camp. LCC would not be as lively and happy without Moses around to keep us all company.  

Sam Martin

Staffing Director

Sam has been working with camp since 2015. 2018 was her first year in a directing position. After camp in 2017, Sam moved to the tiny island of Saipan where she where spent two years expanding her love of nature and learning more about being a team leader. Now living back in Oregon, she can't wait to get back out to the Lost Coast, Sam knows LCC very well, and with the help of her expert planning abilities, we are looking forward to having her at LCC this summer!
