Brandon Gooch- Camp Director
Brandon Gooch comes to us all the way from Oxford, Mississippi where he has worked and taken on many roles at Camp Lake Stephens for the past 14 years. In 2009, he graduated from the University of Mississippi with a degree in Recreational Management and was immediately appointed as grounds director at the camp, followed by a role as property director beginning in 2015.
Brandon’s experiences growing up and attending Camp Lake Stephens impacted him greatly and instilled in him a passion to work with youth and families to create memorable, life-changing camp experiences. While working at Camp Lake Stephens, Brandon began an Environmental Education program at the camp. Through this program he was able to develop a large camp garden, a barn with a variety of animals, beehives, greenhouse, and a large composting facility. He now brings that same passion for camping ministry and healthy environmental practices to Bellwether Farm.
Brandon is happily married to Candace, and they have a beautiful 2-year-old daughter named Ellen.
