Volunteer Roger Johnson

Roger is affectionately known as "Cole's Dad" at Camp. Father of Cole Johnson, Roger started Volunteering at Twitch & Shout with his wife Heather. Heather was a bright and shining light at Camp. Despite the passing of his wife several years ago, Roger and his son Cole continue to come to camp and connect with something that was near and dear to Heather's heart. Roger has an incredible smile and has been a valuable support to our staff every summer. His jokes, his kind words, and his calm and steady presence is a breath of fresh air.

Roger has continued honoring Heather with the "Heather Johnson Award" at Camp. We appreciate all that he does for Camp and our families. Thank you Roger - we all love you very much!
