Meet The Camp DeWolfe Team:

Matt Tees – Executive Director
Emma Tees – Program Director

The Tees Family

The Tees Family

My wife Emma and I serve as a Ministry Team at Camp DeWolfe. I grew up in Philadelphia and was fortunate to attend and serve at different summer camps throughout the East Coast. I graduated from Western New England University (Springfield, MA) with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: Marketing, Communications/Advertising and earned an MBA in 2015. Emma was born and raised in England, and graduated from the University of Surrey with a Bachelors of Music. Emma was an ESL Teacher in Korea and served with church youth groups and camp ministries. We met while serving in camp ministry and since being married, have worked together at different organizations throughout the United States. Our one guide has been God’s leading and continual draw on each of our hearts to serve and build His global church. One of our family verses is Matthew 28:18 where Jesus says, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”  We enjoy quality time with our daughter, and making memories traveling over 30 countries and over 30 states, exploring God’s beautiful Earth and learning about the variety of cultures and traditions across the world.


Tina DeGolyer – Food Service Manager and the Food Service Team

Tina and the Food Service Team

I was born and raised in Wading River and upon graduation from our local high school, Iona College, NY accepted me into their Bachelors of Arts, Business Program. After graduating in 1990, I was equipped with my degree and several internships, including in Restaurants and Hospitality, so I then began my post college career. Happily, I met my future husband who was already in Food Service. Fortunately, our vision for life, career and children compliment our passion for food! As my husband and I grew as partners in life, we also grew our business horizons expanding into deli’s, college food service and our full service catering organization, that includes parties, events, weddings, showers, holidays, industrial and our local ‘Out East Winery’s.’ Since 2006, I have had the opportunity to cater for Camp DeWolfe. Following the 2011 renovations, I now serve at the Food Service Manager for Camp DeWolfe. It is with great pleasure I have accepted this role. See you at the Father John Davis Hall. Bon Appetito! Click here to find out more about our In-House Food Services

Donna Barbaro – Office Administrator
I’m a Long Island native and Wading River local and graduate of SUNY @ Stony Brook and Dowling College. I’m new to Camp DeWolfe, and I’m one of the voices you may speak with when calling the camp office about booking a retreat or calling about summer camp. I like arts & crafts, cooking, gardening, NASCAR auto racing, boating, and fishing. The most exciting thing I’ve ever done is ride in a race car at 120 mph around Walt Disney World Speedway, and the most scary thing I’ve ever done is slide down a 12-story water slide (Summit Plummet). Working at Camp DeWolfe is inspiring, enriching, and energizing. I look forward to meeting our new summer campers!
