Pieter Tramper - Program Director

Pieter Tramper first came to Brethren Woods in 2012 as a Summer Camp counselor. He came over from the Netherlands to spend his summer working with children in God's creation.  He enjoyed it so much he came back in 2013 and 2014 to continue in this special ministry. In 2014 he made the transition from counselor to Assistant Program Director. In the Fall of 2014 he married his camp sweetheart, and got hired as adventure coordinator. After a series of unfortunate events he was not able to come back to camp for four years. In February of 2018 he received his green card, and he moved over to the U.S. in September. He started working at camp shortly thereafter.  In his spare time he enjoys riding his bike, toying with electronics, and running
