Aaron Thomas and his wife Karin are both second generation campers of Twin Peaks Bible Camp, as both of their mothers attended as campers. Twin Peaks Bible Camp has played a major part in their lives to the point where Aaron proposed to and married Karin on the camp grounds. They have three children Alyssa, Adelyn, and Ayden as well as their three dogs Jake, Dozer, and Remington.

Aaron and his wife attended Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, Missouri where he graduated in 1998 with a degree in Pastoral Studies. During Aaron’s last year at college, the Thomases began the process of applying to join the staff of Twin Peaks. On December 26, 1996, the camp board approved their place on staff as assistant director. After completing Aaron’s last year of college in 1997, they moved back to Colorado to begin ministering at Twin Peaks. During their time at Twin Peaks, they have had the privilege of serving as the youth pastor of two churches, each for four years. In 2007, Aaron completed a three year transition period to become the director.


Ryan and Robin Stepanek and family bring a variety of experiences to camp including graduating from Frontier School of the Bible, serving in youth ministries, to several years of construction experience as a general contractor. We are thankful for the Stepanek’s willingness to serve and look forward to what they will bring to all aspects of the camp ministry.


Cal and Janice Sheppard have been serving the Lord as full time missionaries for over 46 years. Christian camping was part of their life growing up and has always been a major part of their ministry. They’ve been serving at Twin Peaks Bible Camp since 1983. Cal stepped down as Director of Twin Peaks in 2007 yet continues to help when ever possible.
