Jessica is passionate about cultivating intentional relationships with both her Lord Jesus and other people. A Michigan native, she has served at several camps; she relishes being a part of the impact God has in the lives and hearts of children and adults.

Greg Jones

Director of Food Services

Greg heads up all aspects of providing the food we get to enjoy here at camp. The Jones family moved to the Heights from Atwood, Kansas in April 2012. For years they have been deeply invested in camp as a family, taking nearly all their vacation time to come up and volunteer. All of their children have come to camp as campers and many have worked on seasonal staff. It has been a dream of theirs to work in full-time ministry, so Greg and his wife, Gwen, along with their two youngest, Aliah and Obadiah, are excited to be a part of The Heights community.

Derek Laffoon

Store Manager & Camp Housekeeper

Derek has previously been on camp staff in various roles and is excited to be here as the year-round store manager and housekeeper. Camp has made Derek a happier person since his first time on staff in summer of 2013 and since that summer he has been chasing experiences which have developed his love for young people (and the young at heart). He is passionate about helping other staff and guests pursue God-given dreams and encouraging them to pursue discipleship relationships in their lives. With his extensive experience cleaning his room and scrubbing toilets, and the example set by the movie Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, he is excited to be fulfilling his current roles at camp.
