Meet the Team
Arielle Owens: Camp Director
Welcome Brazos Valley families! This will be my second year as Director at Camp Millican, and I’m thrilled to be leading the adventure for all of our (soon to be) campers! In case you don’t know me, I’m a seven-year teacher from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor with a BFA in Art Education (EC-12 certification) and a BA in Christian Studies with an Art minor. Prior to student teaching I was a lifeguard and four-year site director for the YMCA in after school care. Working with other teachers and students from various areas and backgrounds has been invaluable and has equipped me as a teacher to better serve my own students.
