Leadership

Year-Round CRM Staff

Art & Pam DeVos

Executive Director
Food Service Director

Serving CRM since 2013 
Born and raised on a farm in NW Iowa, Art grew up going to camp and loved it.  It was at camp where he gave his life to the Lord.  Art then found himself working all four summers while in college at the same camp he attended.  It was during those summers that he realized his passion for the camping ministry and felt God calling him to this ministry full-time.

Pam's father served many years in the United States Air Force which meant she has lived all over the country.  She was born in California and lived in 7 different states before settling in the Omaha area.
 
Art and Pam met while attending Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa and were married in 2002.  They moved to Houston, Texas where Pam taught 1st Grade in an inner-city Houston school district and Art began work for a law firm.  Soon after, they received a call to enter into the camp ministry.    

Pam had previous kitchen experience and became Serve-Safe Certified and began managing all aspects of the camp kitchen.  She has continued to do so since their camping ministry began in 2004. She also assists in the camp program areas bringing a significant wealth of knowledge and organization to the summer program.  Together they have served at camps in Iowa and Pennsylvania before calling Nebraska home.

They have two sons, Ashton & Hudson, and have done foster care for many years as well.

Cooter Hein

Program Director

Serving CRM since 2021 
Cooter has a legal name, but it has never been used.  Cooter grew up in Glidden, Iowa and attended Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, Missouri where he received a degree in Youth Ministry.  

Camp had a huge impact on his life growing up.  It was a place where Cooter made true friends, but more importantly, it was a place where he grew closer to God and truly learned how to follow Him.  

Prior to joining the CRM staff, Cooter had lived in Alliance, Nebraska and spent a lot of time serving alongside the congregation of the Alliance Evangelical Free Church, especially in their youth programs.

Doug the pug

Camp dog

Serving CRM since 2013 
Doug the Pug is a welcomed face here at CRM.  Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Doug enjoyed the outdoors.  He loved swimming with the kids whenever the opportunity would arise.

His main role is to simply bring people joy.  He likes to waddle around the camp saying hi to as many people as he can.  Doug really knows how to make kids happy.  (And he is very good at it!)  He doesn't move very fast which makes him that much more lovable.

Prior to Camp Rock, Doug was serving alongside of his humans at a camp in Pennsylvania.

Camille

CAmp Puppy

Serving CRM since 2022 
Camille was born in Idaho in August of 2021.  She moved to CRM at 8 weeks and immediately began training to be a good camp doggie.

She loves running and playing with balls, but pine cones are her passion.  

She is learning and growing fast and by summer she is looking forward to making a lot of kids happy.
