Ethan Porter

Camp Director

I was born and raised in Plainview, NE. I attended college in Sioux City, IA for Computer Networking and Security. I moved to Fremont in 2011 where I worked for Camp Fontanelle and the Fremont School District. In my free time I enjoy reading, photography, hanging out with my dog, and spending time outdoors.

I was a camp counselor at Camp Fontanelle for 5 summers where I found a passion for camping ministries within myself. I then went on to volunteer for another 5 summers, I have served on the GP Camps board for 4 years until resigning my position on the board to come work here at Norwesca.

I am Safe Gatherings certified. I am also certified in life-guarding, CPR, First Aid, AED, and blood borne pathogens.


Brandi May

Office Administrator

Hello! My name is Brandi May. I am the part time office assistant for Camp Norwesca! My husband and I moved here in September of 2017 and live at Chadron State Park where my husband is the Assistant Superintendent.


Before we moved, we lived at Windmill State Recreation Area which is just a little East of Kearney, Nebraska. I graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2015 with my Bachelors in Elementary Education. When I am not at the camp, I am substitute teaching for Chadron Public Schools.


I also enjoy horseback riding, baking, swimming, traveling. and playing with our dog, a Sheltie named Leo. I have a passion for teaching and enjoying the outdoors. I love all the exciting adventures at Camp Norwesca!
