AstroCamp Kitchen Director
Doug is originally from Minnesota, where he earned his culinary degree. He started his camping career working at the YMCA camp in Julian, California.
In 1987, Doug came to Guided Discoveries, accepting the position as the Head Chef at Toyon Bay. After raising his family and living on Catalina for 24 years, he decided to change destinations and moved to Austin, Texas, and took a position at Camp Young Judaea as the Kitchen Director.
In April 2014, Doug returned to Guided Discoveries as the Food Service Director at AstroCamp, bringing all of his culinary expertise and experience with him. He’s enjoying all of the new opportunities at AstroCamp, both in the kitchen and out, and is looking forward to all the years on the mountain yet to come.
Food is fun!
