Camp Challenge Board Announces Brian Klein as New Executive Director!

Brian and Maria Klein

Last spring Ralph Price announced his intention to retire this fall after twenty camping seasons as the Executive Director of Camp Challenge.  Ralph and Lyn committed a large portion of their lives to serve the youth of Indiana and made many sacrifices along the way.

Change can sometimes be hard, but with change comes opportunity.  After a nationwide search that considered 32 applicants from 16 different states, the Camp Challenge Board of Directors has selected one of our own—Brian Klein—as our next Executive Director! His first official day on the job will be October 7th.

We were encouraged during the interview process to see the number of people who are passionate about the Christian camping experience. In Brian, however, we are getting a multi-talented individual who is not only passionate about Christian camping in general, but extremely passionate about Camp Challenge specifically.  Brian and his wife Maria (Mahuron) have both been connected with Camp Challenge their entire lives as campers, donors, and volunteers.

We are so thankful for the faithful service of the Price family and are excited about the new possibilities the Klein family bring to camp.

Please join us in welcoming the Klein family on our Camp Challenge Facebook page!

    Congratulations Brian and Maria.
    Maria, who would have known years ago when you attended camp as a child that one day you would be there serving as a director? Isn’t God’s plan and timing wonderful?
    Blessings on this new chapter in your lives for Christ.
