Jen Mayo

Camp Director

Hello Everyone! I am beyond excited to be Camp Director for the second summer of Camp Caverns! When I am not making amazing memories with Camp Caverns campers I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being at the beach, traveling to a new destination or hiking a new trail! I am so excited to have so many fantastic familiar faces on our crew back this year along with some wonderful additions - please meet them all below! I am looking forward to a great summer with a great crew at Camp Caverns!

Arts and Craft Director

Hey guys! My name is Meg Gibson and I will be the Art and Craft Director at Camp Caverns once again this summer! I was born in Nashville, TN, but growing up lived in the British Virgin Islands, AZ and TX. We always made our way back to Middle Tennessee, where I still call home with my two children, two crazy dogs and one laid back cat. I work at a local private school, where I am a teacher assistant for elementary students. Jen Mayo and I have worked side by side at summer camps and after school programs for the last 7yrs. When I am not working, I spend my free time drawing, painting, hiking, and kayaking with my dog and kids. I absolutely love combining my two passions, creating art and nurturing children. I am excited to get to know all of the kids this summer and make amazing and wonderful memories that will last a lifetime!

I have been working with Jen Mayo for 6 years at her after school programs and summer camps - but have known her for much longer as she happens to by my daughter! My favorite things in life are my family, my pets (4 cats and a dog!) and cooking! I look forward to bringing my passion for cooking to Camp Caverns and creating delicious memories with all of our campers!
