Tina grew up coming to CoBeAc, and has loved showing their boys, Jackson and William, all the places that hold special memories around camp. She now serves as the Office Manager and Lifeguard Trainer.

He is passionate about camp ministries having attended Camp CoBeAc as a camper.

During the summer, he has a blast working with the junior campers and adding to the energy of the team.

David & Jackie Wright


David and Jacquelyn were married in May 2021 after working several summers together at Camp CoBeAc. David was saved at camp, and he also surrendered to the Lord at a camp. Therefore, David shares a great desire to further the work of the Lord by working here at Camp CoBeac, and this desire is evident through his hard work during his time as a student, intern, and summer staffer at CoBeAc. Jacquelyn shares her husband’s passion for camp ministry, and she has also demonstrated that passion through her hard work in the hospitality department.

MaKena Dennis


Makena is from the Saginaw, and she attended Camp CoBeAc for a couple of years as a teen camper. She joined summer staff in 2019 to be a part of the guest services department, where she served as the retail coordinator last year. She has also been a part of the Camp Apprenticeship program for two years, so we were thrilled to welcome her into our full-time staff in the spring of this year as our registration secretary. Since Makena first joined summer staff through her time as a CA and now as a full-time staff member, she has demonstrated diligence, a helping spirit, and a sweet disposition!
