“I am excited to welcome Andrew to Camp Arcadia. I love the passion he has for food and for sharing that passion with others. He will be a great addition to the staff. I am confident that with the strong foundation that Kurt has created Andrew can continue Camp’s tradition of providing wonderful meal experiences.” commented Executive Director, Chip May.
