Meet Our Team

 Brad Damon
Brad DamonAssociate Director
Brad first came to Amnicon in the summer of 2008 and he keeps coming back. Through Guiding (2008, 2009, 2014), Summer Assistant Directing (2010), and summer and work-weekend volunteering, Brad has grown closer to the camp community and has grown in his faith. He often refers to Camp Amnicon as his “spiritual home”.

Associate Director since June 2015, Brad gets to hire and train the summer staff, keep the site in working condition, and write the newsletter, invitations, and other communications.

In what is left of his free time Brad enjoys camping, canoeing, classical literature, playing guitar, acting, and strategy games.

Hannah Damon
Hannah DamonAssociate Director
Hannah was born on a Saturday in Eagan, Mn. As a child, her career aspirations included being a whale trainer, an elevator button pusher, and a movie costume designer. She graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2010 where she studied psychology and philosophy. She has always enjoyed connecting with people and solving problems.

Hannah first encountered Amnicon in 2008 when her good friend Brad Damon invited her to visit the summer camp where he was working. Brad and Hannah were married in 2012, and continued returning, volunteering, and working at Amnicon as often as possible. Hannah began full time as a director in 2015. She takes care of bookkeeping, waste water treatment, and scheduling retreats, hermitages, and summer trips.

In her free time, she loves to hike, swim, crochet, cook, garden, and spend time with her wonderful husband.

Leah Damon
Leah DamonDevelopment Coordinator
Leah’s journey with Amnicon began in the summer of 2010. She started as an Hivernaut and experienced Camp Amnicon in a way that challenged her to see the world in a new light. In 2014, she decided to return to Amnicon, but in a different role, as a Guide. That summer, God showed her that He has so much in store for her and that she is a capable lovable child of God. In the spring of 2015, she joined the amazing Amnicon community as a year-round staff person in a new role for her and for the camp as the Development Coordinator.

When Leah is not in the office connecting with volunteers and donors, she is usually studying, as she is pursuing her master’s degree in Intercultural Studies and preparing to follow her calling to work with young people and women in Africa. She also enjoys keeping herself busy with sewing and crafty things or just laying in a hammock watching the stars!

Audrey completed her degree in Religion and French this spring at Luther College, and after three summers at Amnicon, she enjoys the opportunity to settle into the intentional, Christ-centered Amnicon community for a whole year.

Audrey served as a Wilderness Guide for two summers and as Assistant Director during the most recent summer. She loves being able to call the shores of Lake Superior home and takes advantage of the convenient beauty by walking the trails on-site and canoeing the Amnicon River in her free time. Audrey is also involved in local Hope Community Church’s youth and young adult ministries.

She is passionate about outdoor ministry and excited about the opportunities to learn and grow as a servant leader in the Amnicon community this year.
