Bridget (Gaffney) Anderson
Bridget, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native, found her passion for camping during her college years when she became involved with Camp Shawnee through the Christian Appalachian Project, a nonprofit organization in Eastern Kentucky. She recently married her husband, Mark Anderson, who was a camp counselor with her many summers back at Camp Shawnee.
Prior to Piomingo, Bridget worked as the Program Director for ESF Dream Camp in Philadelphia. She worked with inner city youth in a year round after school and summer day camp program for four years. Bridget has been with Camp Piomingo now for 2 summers as the Summer Program Director and has loved every part of camp life! She is excited about the many opportunities that lie ahead in keeping Camp Piomingo the magical place so many campers, guests, staff, and alumni come back to visit year after year!
