Executive Director, Tory Champion, has been with us at camp in many capacities. Her children grew up here at Wayfarer and in 2001 Tory joined us a 'camp mom'. Tory took charge of our camp store the following summer and has been managing design and sales since. In 2010, Tory came on board as our Executive Director and helps with all aspects of your camper's experiences here at Wayfarer.
You can find her all over the southeast recruiting and visiting families in our off season and pretty much anywhere in camp if it's between May and August! Tory grew up in Charleston, SC and later moved to Spartanburg, SC where she lives with her husband, Parker, and their springer spaniel, Jack.
