We’re happy to have a native Central Oregonian on the team at Big Lake. Originally from Bend, Oregon, Ross started working for Big Lake in 2009 as Assistant Camp Ranger. As a licensed contractor by trade, Ross’s skills have been put to good use at camp. In his free time Ross enjoys spending time with his wife, Erinn, and their two children, Zeb and Peyton. You can often find them skiing, snowboarding, dirt biking, or mountain biking.
