Anne Bailey is a development officer for the HARPS Foundation and a compliance consultant in the financial services industry. She first became involved in Camp Selah when her young daughter attended a week-long sleep-away camp at Selah and didn’t want to leave. With her family, Anne has been actively involved in her church, the American Youth Harp Ensemble, the Boy Scouts, YMCA, and summer league swim teams.
For her, Camp Selah represents a beautiful haven for peaceful reflection and communion with nature as well as an exciting way to continue on a much larger scale the work she started as a licensed therapeutic foster parent – helping at-risk children, their families, and the community during times of crisis and need.

Her prayer is that God will take her small talents and experiences, past and present, and in some way use them for extraordinary service!
