Assistant Treasurer: Amy Henson-Bohlen
Facilities: Mike Noteboom
Mike is a carpenter turned building superintendent, licensed since 1988, employed by First Presbyterian Church of Kalamazoo since 2005, looking for a fishing spot, became involved in Camp Greenwood’s future due to an overwhelming calling from God to try to “save” the physical location of Camp Greenwood from the urge to turn it into cash. Camping is a new interest that coincides with a desire to make a difference in the world, to help children and adults to find their place and create a positive outcome from our life on earth.
