Ron Kregness

Executive Director

Ron has 35 years of Christian camping experience, including 25 years as Executive Director at Lake Waubesa Bible Camp. He is a graduate of Wheaton College and earned a degree in Psychology. Although Ron oversees the team, he is not absent from the daily “hands on” duties of camp. During the summer months of camp, you will find Ron actively engaged with daily details such as registration or participating in the evening skit. In retreat season it is not rare to find him in the kitchen cooking for groups. Ron and his wife, Dawn, have six children who have had the privilege of growing up at camp.

Dawn Kregness

Director of Operations

Dawn is a delightful, quirky, artistically-inclined, lover of Jesus.  Her passion is to teach and lead others towards a closer walk with the Lord and love on her family, both at home and at camp.  In the off-season, she can be found drinking ice tea at McDonald’s reading a good mystery, or watching Andy Griffith for the 34th time, as well as holding the rest of us together.

J0 Barriga

Director of Marketing and Guest Services

Jo was on summer staff at LWBC while in college.  After Jo and Jesse were married they were summer guest speakers for several years (they also had a couple of kids in those years). Now Jo is on the year-round staff and creates marketing material, handles social media content and interaction.  During the off-season, she books and hosts our retreat groups. In the summer, Jo can be found, well… that really depends on the day.  Her favorite places in the summer? Running escape rooms or driving around in the point trolly.

Alyssa Guzman

Programming Intern

Alyssa came to camp as a camper ten summers in a row, served as a high school staff for four summers, and last year she fulfilled her twelve-year long dream of working on summer staff. After returning home after a five-month discipleship training program overseas, she is eager to step into her new role here at LWBC. Alyssa is excited to invest this season of her life into camp as it prepares her for a future in ministry. Her desire is to pour out as much or more into this ministry as she’s been poured into by it over the years.
