From an early age as a Boy Scout, Brandon experienced a love of outdoor ministry. Carole came at it from a different direction—that is to say—she married into it. It works well as the two of them manage to bring different strengths and qualities to serve Ocean Park.

Brandon grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, camping, playing sports, and mountain biking. He attended school at Concordia, Portland, and graduated with a degree in Christian Education. His hobbies include coaching three sons in a variety of sports and competing in triathlons. He has served in a variety of roles at numerous camps, most recently as Program Director at Camp Lutherwood in Bellingham, Washington.

Carole grew up in northwest Montana, riding horses and exploring the woods. She attended Carroll College in Helena, Montana, and Western Washington University in Bellingham, and has a BA in Psychology and her certificate in Elementary Education. She stays busy as a mom to the Scheers’ three rambunctious boys and enjoys sunshine and hikes!

Vince

Vince

Food Service Director

Vicent was raised by an executive chef, and his whole life he has had a passion for food. Vince brings more than a love for food to the table. He grew up on a wheat farm outside of Spokane, Washington, as the youngest of six in a close-knit family. Growing up on a farm had many advantages, including giving him many skills outside the kitchen! He worked for years in catering and restaurants in Hawaii and Washington. He has high standards in his kitchen, always striving to make people smile, and he has a soft spot for kids, especially underprivileged kids and those with food allergies. These days you’ll find Vince working hard to give our guests the delicious OP food they expect, flying a drone over camp’s scenery, or out for a walk.
