Changes coming for the Camp Blue Skies team

A note from Dick Sesler, founder of Camp Blue Skies

Jim LizI wanted to share some big news with you about the Camp Blue Skies team!

I am pleased to announce that Jim Guimond will become our Camp Director, a newly created position. As Camp Blue Skies enters our ninth year and continues our strong growth, the need for a Camp Director became more apparent. And we didn’t have to look far for the perfect person.

Jim, as many of you know, is a long-time volunteer and cabin counselor. He teaches the Balance Your Body program, which he created, during camp. His qualifications and passions make him the perfect fit to oversee camp operations and programming.

Jim, who lives in Charlotte, is a life coach, fitness technology consultant, personal trainer, and triathlete. He owns Live Well Charlotte LLC and co-owns Kinetic Heights, which offers weekly classes for those with developmental disabilities and hosts special events, like the one Camp Blue Skies had there in December.

Along with leadership development and fitness training, he works one-on-one and with groups of individuals with developmental disabilities. Jim has worked and volunteered with Special Olympics, Camp SOAR, The Exceptional Foundation of Charlotte, and Autism After 18.

Another change for our team is that Liz Rumbaugh will be leaving her position as Program Director to pursue a career as a life coach. She is one of the first people who came to work with us and helped shape what Camp Blue Skies has become.

Liz developed the schedule and curriculum, building our camp culture with fun and exciting programs. She brought together a diverse mix of talented program instructors. And she has been the energetic “voice” of camp. All of this has made a lifelong impact on campers and volunteers.

Our camp community will miss her dearly and wishes her the best of luck with her new career. She promises she will visit… and you know I’ll personally hold her to that.

Both Jim and Liz will be at the Georgia and Williams Syndrome sessions next month. Please join me in congratulating them!
