As many of you know I am Alyson Bailey. My parents are Misty and Roger Bailey, who many of you know as well. I am sixteen years old, go to Swauger Valley Free Will Baptist Church, and have gone to Mt. Hope since I was eight years old.

NATALIE ANGUS

Hello, I’m Natalie Angus. I am the daughter of Brad and Marie Angus. I am a homeschooled sophomore in high school. Some of my favorite hobbies are acting and Bible Quizzing. I love working with kids, and this year I have had the opportunity to help tutor two elementary students a couple of days a week.  I am very excited to get to work out at Mt. Hope this summer. This will be my first summer to work at Mt. Hope because camp was canceled last year due to COVID.

DESTINY RUTH

19 years old 
Hi, I am Destiny Ruth and I am a college student at Clarks Summit University in Pennsylvania. I am getting two Bachelor Degrees in Youth Ministry and in Bible/Theology, I also have a minor in counseling. I am pursuing these degrees, because God willing, I hope to become a camp director and lead kids in a fun practical way towards Jesus through the staff and leadership.  This passion of mine surfaced when I took my Gap Year with SCORE International to Costa Rica where I was emerged into countless hours of Bible and Spanish classes, but into ministry, as well.
