Please join us as we honor the work and contributions of David Poole.

This year, our conference camping program is proud to honor one of our most prolific and longest-serving mentors/volunteers, Dave Poole.

Dave’s care and compassion for young people is seen through his 46+ year teaching career, but first came to the camping program in 1982 in the form of a counselor.  In 1990, he became a camp dean at Wesley Forest alongside Beth Jones.  Since then, Dave has impacted thousands of lives with his kindness, his care and his love.  He has launched the career and nurtured the call of at least a dozen pastors in the Susquehanna Conference. 

The only thing that matches Dave’s passion for camp is Dave’s passion for God.  Dave credits every success he has experienced to his faith and lives authentically in every aspect of his life.
