Connor Bujno, Camp Susque’s Retreat Coordinator, although our newest Year Round Staff starting his role in January 2023, is no stranger to camp. Having grown up attending camp starting as a camper in 2006, a SIT in 2015, and Summer Staff in 2016, Connor is well versed in camp culture that is unique to Susque. Add to that his experience in the field formerly working Customer Services roles at Liebenzell Retreat Ministries, and having studied Camp and Outdoor Adventure Leadership with a double minor in Youth Ministries and History from Liberty University, Connor is perfectly suited to serve as Susque’s Retreat Coordinator. His penchant for fun and his heart for camp ministry makes him the perfect person to head up this hospitality role.

When Connor isn’t coordinating retreats at Susque, you can find him coming alongside other departments and serving as kitchen staff and counselor for our many camps and events. Outside of work, you’ll find him starting the day slowly by sleeping in, having some coffee, or pursuing his dream of visiting all the Major League Baseball stadiums.
