Taryn Kelly (March 13, 1980 – September 7, 1999)
Taryn is best remembered, by her campers and fellow staff members, for being extremely passionate about reaching children and young people for Christ. Taryn spent two summers ministering as a camp counselor and saw many campers put their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior while in her care. She grew up attending Family Camps with her parents and brothers and also attending youth camps. The Memorial Scholarship Fund at Camp Gilead was founded by her parents, Jim & Lynn Kelly, to reach out to more youth with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
