Meet Your 2022 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! 


Meet Lisa Vaughn, the 4-H Camp Wabasso Registrar. Lisa has worked for Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County since June of 2011. She started her career at Extension in our Nutrition department. She has been taking care of all the camp registrations since 2016. Lisa is the voice you hear over the phone, or the person answering your email with your camp questions. She also creates the camp brochure and the camp flyers. In her spare time, she likes to relax and watch movies with her dogs Bruty and Bambi. She also likes to watch the birds and take the dogs for a walk at the park. 


Meet Larry Tiller! Larry is our Camp Facilities Coordinator and takes care of everything related to the grounds at camp! Larry is who you will see on the tractor and out weed-whacking the trails. 2021 was Larry’s first summer at camp, and he looks forward to many more. In his spare time, Larry enjoys going camping with his wife and two children.
