Bella Douglas

Looking forward to this summer, Bella says, “I can’t wait to be back in the place where I feel most connected to God and be constantly surrounded by nature!” This will be Bella’s third summer on staff. She’s worked with us as a counselor and this year, has joined our Leadership Staff as a Leadership Development Coordinator. Bella is a Vocal Music major at Loras College, and you’ll definitely spot her playing guitar during worship this summer.

Bella is from Waterloo, Iowa. She likes to play piano, listen to music, and really loves cooking. One of her favorite pastimes is going out for coffee with friends or going out for walks with her dog. She’s not a big fan of watching movies (they’re too long and she gets bored) but Bella does enjoy watching cartoons. When you meet her, you’ll have to ask her which are her favorites. Some fun facts about Bella: she’s never broken a bone, been stung by a bee, or had a bloody nose. Sounds like she’s pretty lucky!

Looking back at her past camp experiences, Bella says, “I never attended any camps as a kid, so when I started working at Camp Bear Creek I was definitely nervous. But I ended up having the best summer ever! I was a counselor in both 2022 and 2023, and both of those years were so fulfilling as I got to not only grow in different skills, but I met amazing people who I created awesome memories with.” Bella connects best with God through singing, playing, and listening to music. She also enjoys being out in nature and experiencing the love of God through creation. It definitely makes sense why she enjoys camp so much.

Bella’s favorite Bible passage is Isaiah 40:1-3: “I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry. He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God; Many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord. “
