Meet our Staff

Jon Walker

Executive Director

In his youth, Jon Walker fell in love with Christian camping while attending camp at Quaker Hill and went on to serve as a counselor any chance he could. In the early 90’s Jon and his incredible wife Sara found themselves serving fulltime on the Oregon Coast at Quaker Hill’s sister camp where they spent the next decade. With nearly 30 years of Christian camping under his belt Jon is still passionate about creating a safe and healthy environment where guests and campers can connect with God, fellowship with others and remove the distractions of everyday life. When he is not at camp you can find him outdoors – hiking, fishing, paddle boarding, or on coffee dates with his wife!

After pursing her degree from George Fox University, she was led to McCall where she spent a summer on Quaker Hill’s summer staff. Upon her decision to stay in Idaho, she met the love of her life and received the biggest blessing they could ask for – their daughter! Mariah is passionate about connecting guests and campers to God’s beauty! When she’s not at camp you can find her hiking in the woods, paddle boarding, or skiing the slopes with her friends and family!

Phil Kaufman

Food Services Director

30+ years of restaurant and culinary work.  Owned/Operated a chain of successful restaurants on the west coast and Las Vegas.  I was introduced to Christian Camping when my restaurants cooked pizzas for the coastal Friend's Camp (Twin Rocks Friends Camp).  What I am most passionate, as well as intrigued by, is the myriad of paths our staff at Quaker Hill has the opportunity to experience from the guest groups making use of our facility. Christianity is a relationship that expands and deepens with time. How lucky I am to be a part of the people in various stages of that journey.  The community of McCall is ever changing and the camp tends to be a peaceful, protective haven to experience that community. Providing quality food to campers is my way of giving back what the camp and staff has given me.
