Eagle’s Nest Camp is thrilled to welcome two new members to our full-time team!


Frank Burch (Assistant Camp Director) has recently moved to North Carolina from Texas where he most recently worked as the Recreation Manager for Parks and Recreation for the city of Meadows Place (there was a sugar glider behind him on our first Zoom chat). As the Rec Manager, he planned and directed a 10-week outdoor education day camp. He has also worked as a member of the leadership at Camp Champions. Some of his responsibilities at Champions included marketing, division leadership, and “COVID Czar.” Frank also has a Masters in Fine Arts, Fiction and has taught English to 10th grade students. Be sure to ask him about his Masters’ thesis.





Ben Sunding (Camp Program Manager) has been a beloved camp counselor and seasonal camp leader at Eagle’s Nest since the summer of 2019. Ben has led Added Adventures, Hantes and hilarious skits for Eagle’s Nest during that time. He graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Recreation Management. Since graduation, Ben has worked as a Field Instructor for Trails Carolina, and also as an educator for Kieve Wavus Education Inc. in Maine. Ben has a talent for making people feel good, and is excited to continue to support the mission of Eagle’s Nest Foundation.
