In April 2014, Beth Dietert joined the CAMP team as the Communications and Marketing Intern. Beth graduated from Texas Lutheran University, where she earned a BA in Communications Studies and a minor in Public Relations. Prior to joining CAMP, Beth held the position of Event Coordinator for the McKenna Legacy Foundation in New Braunfels, Texas. She also served as a volunteer in the Office of Development and Alumni Relations at TLU .
As a student, Beth concentrated on acquiring skills which would serve her as a development professional, serving three internships with local non-profits in which she gained valuable experience in research for grant writing, designing and conducting outcome based studies, and writing for targeted audiences.
Beth’s relationship with CAMP started in 2008 when her then 12 year old son Mikey attended his first session of CAMP as a Cherokee boy. The year Mikey came to CAMP his self-esteem was at an all-time low. “The child I delivered to CAMP was not the same as the child I picked up,” said Beth. “CAMP gave Mikey back his dignity and self-respect and he has never been the same!”
“I feel a great debt to CAMP for the positive impact it has had on my son,” said Beth.
John E. Southard wrote, “The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you.” Beth feels that in joining the CAMP team she has made the first step toward getting even with CAMP for providing her son with the most wonderful experiences of his life.
