Wonderland Camp Full Time Staff

Cory Polk, Executive Director
Cory joined Wonderland Camp in December 2016. He graduated from Texas A&M with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. After graduation, Cory worked in the oil and gas industry. During his 15 years in the oil and gas industry, he learned numerous skills that help him in developing and managing a diverse team. At Wonderland Camp, Cory provides oversight for all fundraising, maintenance and camp activities. He will serve as the face of the camp and looks forward to getting into the community to meet all the people and business that help keep camp special to so many. Cory’s wife and sons will join him in Missouri in June 2017.

Mark Sigel, Camp Director
Mark has worked year-round at camps for people with disabilities and chronic or terminal illnesses since 2008 and for several summers before that. He joined us in January 2015 directly from the Double H Ranch in NY (a camp founded by Paul Newman) where he was the Assistant Camp Director for more than two years. At Double H, Mark was responsible for recruiting, hiring, and supporting the ranch's 92 summer staff as well as overseeing its Therapeutic Recreation and Occupational Therapy interns. Prior to that role, Mark spent two years in Ireland with campers who have life-threatening illnesses, and before that he was launching his career with Camp Courageous in Iowa. Here at Wonderland Camp, Mark is in charge of our complete camping programming and staff as well as some fundraising and volunteer relations. Mark and his wife, Krista, live on site at camp, and we are delighted they are here.

Kevin Holliday, Maintenance Director
Kevin is no stranger to hard work and construction. Kevin joins the Wonderland Camp team after owning his own construction and excavating company in Jefferson City. Kevin began helping his dad build houses at 8 years old. Kevin was a member of the Jefferson City Jaycees and has been volunteering at Wonderland Camp for years. He was instrumental in the newer pool deck and the new bathroom at the Pool. Kevin is excited about getting to help make Wonderland Camp the best it can be. His goal is to maintain safe facilities so the staff can serve the campers better. Wonderland Camp is glad Kevin decided to join the team.

Richard Benad, Maintenance Specialist
Richard has been on hand at camp since March 2011. He gathered up lots of experience before joining us that really pays off around our facility and grounds. Richard's been a diesel mechanic, then a shop mechanic working on over-the-road coaches and buses; then he worked as a MIG welder, and finally went into lawn care and landscaping services. He lives in Rocky Mount.
