Meet your ambassadors

Be on the lookout for Coniston Ambassadors planning gatherings in your area! Coniston Ambassadors are alumni, parents, and friends of Camp from around the world who have stayed connected to Coniston and want to spread news and strengthen our community. Ambassadors are responsible for organizing gatherings, assisting in career development, and alumni focused activities, as well as notifying the community on the latest Camp developments. They also help with Camp’s fundraising efforts, by spreading the word to our community. Ambassadors are great people to speak to if you need some tips or have questions about Coniston and would like a parent’s perspective or a former staff member perspective etc. Below are quick snapshots of our current Ambassadors and their activities on behalf of Camp.

Sherm Horton

has been an Alumni Ambassador since before we even had a name for it! He has indirectly been connected with almost every alumni event over the past 25 years. Sherm is our Webmaster, having designed and coded every bit of website content that Coniston has. Sherm is an invaluable part of the Coniston community and we are incredibly fortunate to have him! 

Beth (Farrey) Worthington

has been involved with Camp since the 70s and is about to celebrate her 50th year involved with Coniston! Most recently, she helped plan the Sanders Leadership Center in the boathouse reunion event. Additionally, she often helps with events in Colorado and has been known to travel to California for events as well!

Meghan & Brad Ship

met at Coniston and continue to stay closely connected to the Coniston community – both with other alumni and now as camper parents. They were also some of the first ever donors to commit to recurring donations to Coniston! They see donating each month as a convenient way to support Coniston and know that they are providing continuous benefit to all of Coniston’s ongoing efforts.

Corey Miller

is currently living in New York City and working at The Player’s Tribune. He has hosted several Camp gatherings in the City and loves to meet anyone with a Coniston background. His knowledge of the city is phenomenal and was a great help in planning our NYC Alumni event and Career Development night in the Big Apple!

Gray Kaegi

one of our newest Alumni Ambassadors! Gray is a recent graduate of Carleton College, and has already done a fantastic job reaching out to alumni and connecting them to Camp. Gray even helped organize an international camp gathering in the Czech Republic!


Hannah & Michael Slafsky

were both campers and staff members at Coniston for many years and Hannah later worked as part of Coniston’s year round team as the Afterschool Director. Hannah and Michael have always been huge advocates for Camp and have wonderful friendships with many of the Coniston Community.

People can volunteer in many different ways whether on a committee, as a career development panelist, ambassador or helping clean up Camp. Volunteering is a fantastic way to connect with camp and help see it grow.
