Meet the Team

Matt Hammock – Executive Director

Matt began his camping career working at the Oak Glen Christian Conference Center in Southern California in 2003. Over the next few years, Matt worked and managed various departments within OGCCC. He left after a few years to pursue other career opportunities but felt the calling to rejoin the Camping Ministry. Matt arrived to LBCR in May, 2014 and began the process of building a new food program. Shortly after, he worked as interim Director and in January, 2015 accepted the role of Executive Director. Matt’s passion for camping is evident. His prayer is that you experience God in your own way when you are on the grounds of LBCR.

Matt is married to Krisha, and they have a miniature Dachshund named Millie. They are both active in their Church (Mountain Top Church) where Matt writes and produces music with the Mountain Top Band. Krisha also serves on staff at the Church.
