Summer Staff Members

Thomas Arteaga


This will be Thomas' 2nd year on staff. He was previously a Shawnee Counselor (2019).

It's the 9th inning of the World Series, you're up to bat. What's your walk-up song?

Sunday Best by Surfaces (so many other good options though).

If you could be friends with any fictional character, who would it be, and why?

Jake Peralta from Brooklyn 99. We'd easily be the best detective duo in Brooklyn, hands down (sorry Boyle :/)

Is a hot dog a sandwich? Why or why not?

Absolutely... NOT. A hot dog bun is one piece of bread. A sandwich consists of two pieces of bread. Yes, a sub is not a sandwich, but rather closer to a taco.

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Portraying ALL the fun that happens at camp to parents and friends across the Ridgecrest community!

What is your prayer for this summer?

That the love of Jesus Christ would be shown to these kids, and the grace and mercy the staff extend to the kids comes from our Heavenly Father who so deeply cares for his children!
