Elliott Lavery was born and raised in Tennessee. Summer camp is a way of life for him, having worked at camps all over the country for the past decade. He is excited to bring this knowledge and passion for camping to Camp Indianola. When not thinking about summer camp, you can find him on or in the water. Whitewater kayaking is his main hobby, followed in no particular order by hiking, reading books, or playing board games.

Josh has lived in the Pacific Northwest all his life. His construction, pest control, and landscape management skills go all the way back to when he was six years old helping out his dad with his businesses. He has spent 12 years working at PNW camps and has done everything from livestock management to camp cook. He finds great joy in serving and getting to know the guests who come through Camp Indianola. When he is not managing our buildings and grounds, you can find him kayaking on the Sound, talking about life and Jesus with whomever comes his way, or hanging out with his wife, Mandi, and their two kids.
