Island Rec is pleased to wel­come CJ Woods as our new Direc­tor for Camp Eagle Rock; Island Rec’s sum­mer day camp pro­gram for K‑5th graders.

CJ is a stu­dent at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ida­ho where he is cur­rent­ly pur­su­ing a phys­i­cal edu­ca­tion and health degree. His ulti­mate goal is to receive his master’s degree in Spe­cial Education.

As a future edu­ca­tor, he believes in the pro­mo­tion of health and well-being through recre­ation­al activ­i­ty. Grow­ing up in Fri­day Har­bor, he expe­ri­enced first-hand the amaz­ing com­mu­ni­ty on San Juan Island. He par­tic­i­pat­ed in mul­ti­ple Island Rec activ­i­ties and val­ues those expe­ri­ences. He believes in the core val­ues of Island Rec and their impor­tance to the island’s children.

As Fri­day Har­bor remains a spe­cial place to CJ, he’s excit­ed about the oppor­tu­ni­ty to give back to the com­mu­ni­ty through this posi­tion. “The numer­ous oppor­tu­ni­ties, strong com­mu­ni­ty, and sup­port as a kid grow­ing up in Fri­day Har­bor remains vital to who I am today. Being a part of Island Rec is some­thing I’m extreme­ly excit­ed about. The oppor­tu­ni­ties Island Rec pro­vides are tremen­dous, and I’m glad I can align with it pro­fes­sion­al­ly, just as I did in my expe­ri­ences as a kid.”

In his free time CJ enjoys bas­ket­ball, weight-lift­ing, golf­ing, and learn­ing new recre­ation­al games or activ­i­ties. He believes in what Island Rec is about and is excit­ed to team up with an incred­i­ble staff and con­tin­ue to impact islanders as Island Rec con­tin­u­al­ly does.
