on their faces!

Kids Week Program Director
My cousin (Jamie Seale) recommended that I volunteer at Hobé as a CIT when I was a teenager.
And I’ve been hooked ever since! Camp is the highlight of my summer. It’s a privilege to work with such incredible
children and families. I’m excited to join a staff that has such a passion for putting the campers first and making
sure their time at Hobé is positive and memorable. The rest of the year, I love hiking and camping, especially in Zion
and Bryce Canyon. My day isn’t whole if I haven’t yoga-ed, and I’ve never met a dark chocolate bar I didn’t like.
Alison Keddington Volunteer
Two friends volunteered for Hobe in 2011, and thought she would be a great addition to camp. As a school teacher,
she has free time in the summer and wanted to spend it in a worthwhile way. Now she’s hooked!
She loves singing and anything to do with musicals. She’s even written a musical based on
“Sideways Stories from Wayside School” – the children’s book by Louis Sachar.
Stacy Nisogi Volunteer
Stacy’s first year with Camp Hobé was 2004. She currently volunteers with our Day Camp,
working with the youngest campers. She thinks Camp Hobé is great. In her everyday life,
she plays a lot of volleyball and works as a safety consultant.
Brittani Rufener Neto Volunteer
Brittani has been volunteering with Camp Hobe since 2005. She currently volunteers as the Drama activity leader.
The kids at camp are so amazing and have helped encourage her decision to get her masters in Social Work.
She doesn’t know who dreads the end of camp more – her or the campers. She keeps the spirit of camp alive year-round
by randomly singing camp songs. She enjoys camping, playing basketball and spending time with her family.
Matt "Schmatt" Schmidt Teen Week Field Games Leader
Schmatt got involved with Hobé after hearing about it from his sister and a good friend. Schmatt loves to ski, play guitar,
and eat at Beto’s. He is studying robotics in school and learned to ride a motorcycle in the Peruvian jungle. He loves
Camp Hobé! He acts like a kid sometimes, but it seems normal when he’s at Camp!
Jamie started volunteering with Camp Hobé in 1999. She is a
Neonatal Nurse Practitioner at Primary Children’s Medical
Noelia Siguenza Volunteer
Noelia and a friend heard about Camp Hobe and knew that they had to volunteer! After one time, Noelia was addicted!
She hears that happens a lot. Noelia speaks both English and Spanish, and a little French.
Kevin has been with Camp Hobé since 2002. He enjoys sports of all kinds and his
job involves attending most of the UU athletic events (how great is that?). When at camp,
he runs field games and mountain biking activities. Go Utes!
Eric Willison Volunteer
Eric had a roommate who volunteered once year and could not stop talking about Camp Hobé. Then an old boss also recommended
he volunteer with Kids Week. So he did, and he’s been hooked ever since.
