Staff | Meet The Director
Imagine attending camp as an 8 year old and loving it so much that you continue to attend every summer and many years later you become the director of that camp! That amazing experience happened to Evie (Wagner) White 'Rufous' who became the director of CCWNY in 2005. A graduate of the CIT (Counselor in Training) program, she's filled many staff positions over the years, from counselor to horsemanship instructor to Assistant Director. She has a BS in Physical Education from The King's College and taught for a number of years.
Evie lives in Westminster, MD with her husband, Orville 'Fisher', who shares her love of Cherith and joins her during boys' weeks to teach fishing and NRA riflery as well as site maintenance. Their three grown sons, Joshua, Mark and Ben have all attended as campers and staff members.
Why Camp Cherith of WNY?
Many folks have asked Evie why she continues to work/minister at a camp that is so far away from her home. May her answer below encourage you as you seek the best place to send your child to a summer camp.
