Hello! My name is Emma Ortman. I am excited to say that I am a part of the summer staff team at the Southeastern Baptist Youth Camp! I have come to SBYC for about 13 years now. I started at Kindergarten Camp, on to Primary Camp, to Junior Camp, became a Junior Leader, a Paintball Camper, a Wilderness Camper, an adult leader, and finally STAFF! It's safe to say that I have a soft spot for Camp. SBYC has played a large role in my faith journey, and has been a huge blessing in my life!
Now for a little bit about myself. I am a senior at Columbus East High School, I love 3D art, particularly clay sculpting and throwing. I spend as much time on the potters wheel as I can! I also have a passion for martial arts. I am a black belt in Taekwondo at Ko's Martial Arts Academy, and I plan on taining in different styles in the future.
I live on a farm with my parents, two sisters, and my brother. Living in the country is the root of my love for nature and the outdoors! Some of my other hobbies include cooking, reading, hiking, music, rock climbing, and traveling.
I hope to see you here at Camp!
