My name is Zack Brown and I am the Camp Director here at Sound View Camp and Retreat Center. Some of you already know a little bit about me from my time involved with Sound View, but I wanted to take this time to introduce myself to you all. I have been involved with Sound View for the last nine and a half years. After graduating from Whitworth College in 2002 with a degree in Theatre, I worked on staff as a counselor in 2002 and as LIT mentor in 2003. It was during those two summers on staff that I first experienced how God works through Sound View and what an important ministry it is!
After my time on staff I worked in a lot of various career fields, everything from acting to retail. In 2006 I started attending Gonzaga University to obtain a Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership as well as take part in their ROTC program. I was commissioned as an officer in the National Guard in 2008 and finally completed my Masters degree in 2009. After graduating from Gonzaga I went off to Ft. Benning, Georgia and Ft. Knox, Kentucky to complete my officer training. After that I worked as the Student Life Activities Coordinator at Heritage University and then moved into my current position as the Director of Sound View.
I count God's blessings everyday for giving me the opportunity to work in camping ministry. It is amazing to see how important Sound View is to so many people. It is my hope and goal to continue to grow Sound View's ministry and for it to remain a place where you can experience God's Kingdom in a very real and tangible way.
In His Holy and Precious Name,
Zachary "Tin-Tin" Brown
Director, Sound View Camp and Retreat Center
