“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never known neither victory nor defeat.”  - Teddy Roosevelt

David Davolt was born in San Antonio Texas and grew up in Seattle Washington the oldest of four children. In the absence of any relatives in the Northwest, his family spent much time with their church family at West Seattle Christian Church.  David attended Junior High Camp at Pleasant Valley Christian Camp the first year that camp was held there and accepted Jesus that summer. That started a long relationship with Christian camping. He attended camps as a youth from junior high on, helped in camp as a young adult, directed and co-directed camps, served on the Board for Pleasant Valley and for many years served as President. He and his wife, of 35 years,  Melody have attended Family Camp for over twenty summers! He believes that Camp Changes Lives!
David and Melody have three children, two daughter-in-laws and one grandson. They enjoy traveling and take at least one major trip each year to places like Israel,  Europe, South American, Alaska and last year it was to Hawaii. Melody has found the joy of cruising and David is glad to make her happy. David and Melody both enjoy reading. David enjoys using his camera in all types of settings. He has taken up the game of golf since basketball has become a spectator sport for him. They love the outdoors and meeting people.
David has served on the camp board of Intermountain Christian Camp since moving to Boise to serve as Director of Development for
Boise Bible College in 2004. Each summer he and his wife spend several weeks attending camps around the Northwest representing Boise Bible College.
David also serves on the Intermountain Church Planting Board of Directors.
His life verses are:
Romans 12:1-2 :  So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

Chris Fredrickson is the new Camp Manager for Intermountain Christian Camp.  Along with his wife Jen, who will be managing office duties for the camp.  They have three children Naomi, Makena, and Austin.

The Fredrickson’s are following their hearts and God’s will to enter ministry at the Intermountain Christian Camp. Over the last two decades, God has prepared them to make this transition through the jobs He placed them in. Chris has spent the last twenty years working in the power delivery industry for a variety of companies, where he has developed skills in construction, teaching, project management, leadership and electrical circuits.

Jen spent the same time developing her skills in customer service with Idaho Power and PG&E. Also, doing administrative work for an apartment complex in California and most importantly choosing to stay home, raising and teaching three kids that are growing up with God at the center of their lives.

We believe that with the Fredrickson’s talents and passion for God’s will in their lives and ICC, they will continue with the tradition and growth that has been established at the camp over the last 30 years.

Cecil Swenson

Cecil Swenson, with much help from his wife, Keilah, two daughters, Hannah and Hailey, and two sons, Craig and Seth, currently assist in managing duties at Intermountain Christian Camp.  They arrived at the camp in Aug. 2013 and have enjoyed all of the challenges and blessings that camp life presents. Cecil is currently the Youth Minister at Fairfield Community Church in Fairfield, Idaho as well.

Before coming to the church camp, Cecil was involved with youth ministry for about eleven years.  During those years, his ministry was bi-vocationally split between five years in the Navy in Washington State and six years working for a power company in New Mexico.  Having a secular job and a youth ministry helped Cecil to realize that God’s business is much more rewarding and relevant in the world.

Cecil is working hard alongside the Fredrickson's to continue the tradition of Intermountain Christian Camp being a place that produces tomorrow’s pastors, missionaries, and disciples that will transform their communities.

Caleb grew up in Gooding, Idaho where he lived until he graduated in 2007.  It is also, where he met his wife Katie while they were still in school together.  He has always been involved with the church, and early in Caleb’s life, he felt that God was calling him to be in full-time youth and children’s ministry.  After high school, Caleb continued his education at Boise Bible College where he attended for four years and received a Bachelor of Science in Youth Ministry.  During his time at BBC Caleb interned at the Vale Christian Church where Caleb moved to full time once he finished college.  He was there for a total of four years, and Caleb was in charge of the Youth ministry and was the Head of the Education Department as well.  After his ministry in Vale, Caleb moved with his family to The Dalles, Oregon where up until recently, he had been serving as the Youth and Children’s Pastor for The Dalles First Christian Church.  
Caleb and Katie got married while they were both at Boise Bible College, and they graduated together in 2011.  They now have two boys together, Benaiah and Jeffrey.  Ben and Jeff have blessed their parents, but also, do a good job being true boys and keeping their parents on their toes.  

One of Caleb’s greatest joys in Children and Youth Ministries is seeing the transformation that comes from the students when they begin to understand the love that God has for them.  Not only this but seeing the students step up and start doing ministry for themselves.
Caleb’s interests include music, basketball, football, paintball, board games, video games, Mountain Dew, movies, reading, hearing great jokes and laughing, all things Marvel, and spending time with family and friends.
