Meet Your Camp Caverns Crew

Jen Mayo.jpg

Camp Director

Prior to Camp Caverns, Jen founded and directed a successful summer camp for 5 years during her 25 year career in child care and after school programs. In addition to her life's passion nurturing children, Jen brings a love of nature and a worldly perspective to camp having grown up in Italy, studied abroad in Ireland, and traveled avidly through the years. No stranger to the underground, Jen was also a part of the core team that launched Bluegrass Underground in 2008 as the show's first box office manager. What's more, her own two kids cannot wait to be a part of camp life with one as a camper and the other as a counselor-in-training (CITs). It's true, Camp Caverns is a family affair and a nurturing place where Jen will ensure your children thrive while creating magical memories—above and below ground—to last a lifetime.

Arts and Craft Director

Hey guys! My name is Meg Gibson and I will be the Arts and Craft Director at Camp Caverns this summer! I was born in Nashville, Tn, but growing up lived in the British Virgin Islands, Arizona and Texas. We always made our way back to Middle Tennessee, where I still call home with my two children, crazy dog, and laid back cat. I have worked at a local private school for the past 7 years, 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 5 years, and I am so excited to start this new journey with her! When I am not working with children, I spend my free time drawing, painting, hiking, and kayaking with my dog and kids. I absolutely love combing my two passions, creating art and nurturing children. I am excited to get to know all of the kids and make amazing and wonderful memories that will last a lifetime!

Camp Counselor

Hi! I’m Jack Dyer from Nashville, TN and I’m super excited to be a counselor at Camp Caverns this year. When I’m not spelunking, I’m a student at Vanderbilt in the AROTC program studying Russian and International Politics. Previously, I have been lucky enough to be a counselor at Camp SJS and coach middle school football and wrestling at Pope John Paul II Preparatory School. I can’t wait to be at Camp Caverns this summer!

Camp Counseler

Hey, Y’all! I’m Maeve Graham, born and raised in Nashville, TN! If I’m not playing guitar or bass, then I could be found with a paint brush in my hand! I’m currently majoring in Audio Production and Minoring in Studio art over at MTSU. While this is the second summer camp I’ve worked at, I’ve got 5 years under my belt working at Camp Davis! I’m incredibly excited to be working at Camp Caverns this summer, and can't wait until July!

Counselor-in-Training

Hello! I'm Colton Gibson from Hendersonville, Tennessee and I cannot wait to be at Camp Caverns this year. Over the past 2 years, I have worked with Ms. Mayo and others at Camp SJS, where I helped with the Pre-K group. I feel as though that experience has truly prepared me to now work at Camp Caverns and I am very excited! I just graduated from St. Joseph School, where I called home for 9 years and will be attending Father Ryan High School next year. At St. Joseph, I participated in many different activities such as helping direct the Alter Server program, spending 3 years on the forensics team, and working at our media team/club. At my home parish of Our Lady of the Lake, I cofounded an International prayer zoom meeting and am also a part of the fraternus youth group there. I have an immense passion for the outdoors and in my free time can be found in the woods, sitting around a fire pit, or fishing on the lake. Can't wait to see y'all this summer!

Counselor-in-Training

Hi, I am Jackson Mayo and I am currently going into my freshman year of high school. This past year I was involved in basketball, soccer and cross country and was also part of my school's forensics team. I have always had a love for the outdoors, especially the mountains and I'm really looking forward to getting to spend time at Camp Caverns doing many different activities. I have been a junior counselor at Camp SJS for the past three years and enjoy working with kids. I am happy to be able to take a step up this year and get to work at a sleep away camp and am ready for a new type of responsibility. I am excited to get to know all the campers at Camp Caverns and to make many memories. Looking forward to seeing y'all soon!

I look forward to making lasting memories at camp with my fellow counselors and campers.

Counselor-in-Training

Hi! I’m Cassidy Olea. I live in Vero Beach, Florida and am a student at Vero Beach High School. I am an officer in Animal Rescue Club and love volunteering at our local humane society. When I’m not in school or volunteering, I am doing one of my favorite things: dancing, babysitting, going to the beach, or baking! I am an energetic person who is always busy setting new goals for myself. I love nature and enjoy spending lots of time outside. Being someone who is always willing to try new things and loves being around kids, I am beyond excited to be a CIT at Camp Caverns.

Counselor-in-Training

I have loved going to summer camp for many years, but this year I get to go as a Counselor-in-Training at this awesome camp in beautiful Tennessee. Even better, my little sister will be attending the camp too. I play the acoustic guitar, which I will bring and hopefully play. I love being in nature and especially love being on the water rowing (and am on the Vero Beach rowing team!). I love anything artsy and fun so Camp Caverns is perfect! I can’t wait to meet everyone and begin our exciting adventure together.

I do many after school activities, such as soccer, musical theater, cross country, and I am planning on doing cheer next year. I was also a junior counselor at SJS camp last summer and it was one of the best summers ever, so I can’t wait to have another great summer by being a counselor at Camp Caverns! I am so excited to have a great time in July at Camp Caverns and I can’t wait to meet all of y’all. This will be such an amazing experience that I can’t wait for!
