Our Team

Randall Chastain

Chef & Food Service Manager

Randall was hired as the camp’s food service manager in 2012. His wife Paige and two daughters Kiah and Etta have enjoyed making camp their home ever since. When Randall is not in the kitchen, he enjoys outside work, whether operating one of our tractors or helping Matt build something new. He is always up for a game of disc golf or talking about coffee. So, if you have some spare time, visit him in the kitchen and get to know him and his heart.

Dena Saunders

Office Manager

Greetings from Camp Alta. My name is Dena Saunders and I serve as the Office Manager here at camp. My husband Scott and I moved to Alta more than 45 years ago. We love the area and calling this place home. In the early days, our church met on the camp grounds and we even lived here at camp for a short time. In 1995, I officially became part of the Camp Alta Family—and have never looked back. Camp Alta has seen us transition from newlyweds to grandparents—and every season has brought joy in serving the Lord! Spending time in this beautiful setting that is dedicated to the
glory of God is a gift!

Hello. My name is Matt Tomlinson and I am blessed to serve you in my role as Director. I have been around camps and camping ministry most of my life and continue to marvel at the power retreats have to deepen relationships and bring real connection.

Some highlights of my job, in no particular order include;
-meeting and hearing of new ministries and partners
-serving desserts
-seeing God move in the lives of those we serve
-leading a staff determined to love, serve and host you well

I look forward to meeting you and encourage you to reach out for availability or just to hear about what’s going on at Camp Alta.

Ally Weber

Operations Manager

Hello, my name is Ally Weber and I hold the fun and exciting role as Operations Manager. My story at Camp Alta started when I was in college, I came on staff as a summer intern and fell in love with the heart of Camp Alta. After I graduated I was offered a full-time position on staff, during my first summer back I met my husband (camp love stories are the best). After we got married we took some time venturing outside of the camp world but never forgot how much we loved this place. We welcomed our first son into the world and knew that we wanted to raise him in a place like Camp Alta, the doors opened so here we are! As Operations Manager I spend a lot of time behind the scenes but my desire is to give everyone the opportunity to encounter Jesus in the beauty of the mountains. I look forward to seeing you around camp!

Our Camp

Camp Alta is a unique place that God has truly set apart. Over the better part of the last sixty years, people have tangibly experienced the love of the Father while being hosted here. For whatever reason, in one sense or another, the Spirit breathes life into people when they submit to Him in His creation.
