Deans' Bio: Chuck and Marcie Markel

In the summer of 2004, Chuck Marckel and Marcie Bray (now Marckel) partnered with Henry Hawver to provide the first ever Handicamp session at Rock Lake. The intent was to create an environment of camp exclusively for a segment of society that sometimes gets overlooked. Chuck had been serving other camps with the program and thought it would be a great addition to the Rock Lake schedule. 


Both Chuck and Marcie are graduates of Great Lakes Christian College with a heart for people and ministry, especially the marginalized in society. From 2004 until 2011, they saw the program blossom. In 2012, Chuck was offered a preaching ministry in a suburb of Detroit and Marcie was expecting their first child so it was time to pass the baton on to other capable hands. 


Now with two children, Isaac 11 and Phoebe 8, they are in a position to return to Rock Lake to dean the two Handicamp sessions for Summer 2024.
