Meet Your 2020 Camp Staff!

Meet Sabrina DeRue, the 4-H Camp Wabasso Director! Sabrina has worked for Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County since September of 2013. She started her career at Extension in the LaFargeville Afterschool Program as a program assistant and has grown throughout the years to eventually becoming the 4-H Program Manager in 2018. As of November 2019, she is also taking on the responsibility of the 4-H Camp Wabasso Director. Over the past three years, Sabrina has worked with camp being responsible for all of the off-season programming, as well as administrative responsibilities with camp and some programming responsibilities during peak season. Sabrina fell in love with camp the first time she saw the impact the programming had on the youth participants, and is very excited to start this next part of her career! Before her time at Extension, Sabrina went to the SUNY College of Environmental Science and earned her Bachelor of Science in Conservation Biology with a focus on environmental education. In her spare time, Sabrina likes to go hiking, geocaching, camping, and kayaking. Sabrina looks forward to bringing her passion for environmental science to the campers at 4-H Camp Wabasso! 

Jim Gwise, Camp Maintenance

I'm Jim the Maintenance Man!! I don't really call anywhere my home because I grew up around the world as a Navy brat. I developed my handy skills with two AA degrees from Morrisville Ag and Tech and a Bachelors Degree in History. Camp has consumed 14 years of my life; my first year as maintenance, then six years as the Camp Director, and now another seven years in maintenance. My hobbies include loving music, woodworking, guitar, and impersonating my favorite of the Seven Dwarfs... Grumpy.
