Dan Merrick, Co-Director


I’m Dan Merrick. I’ve been attending DOC camps at Tall Oaks for over 3 decades now as a camper, counselor, and director. I consider Tall Oaks to be the foundation of my spiritual journey, and where most of my lifelong friendships were made. I look forward to seeing you this summer!


Nora Engelken, Co-Director

My name is Nora Engelken and I have been going to Tall Oaks camps in 2004. I started going to Day Camps and have been to camp every year since then either as a camper or a counselor. I started counseling at Grandparents camp, Chi Rho and then CYF and Midwinter camps. I grew up learning all sorts of ways to connect with God through my mom, Lisa Engelken, a DOC Pastor. I love seeing how all generations experience and learn new ways to be with God. 


I am the General Manager at Strang Hall in OP. I have been a leader in my personal and professional life for a long time. I am super excited to direct Adult Camp this year as I love intergenerational worship and want to help guide people in different experiences either to connect with each other or with the lord. I am hoping to expand that this next summer with some open-ended worship with group participation, volunteer opportunities, intergenerational small groups and a variety of interest groups for all types of ways to connect with the other campers and with God. I am very excited to see a successful 2nd annual Adult Camp!
