Meet Our Team!

Maggie Moran
Hello! My name is Maggie Moran and I am so excited to be serving as the Assistant Director of Camp Carlo this summer! I live in Shepherdstown, WV, where I serve as the Campus Minister at Shepherd University. I love Jesus, coffee, long car rides, blasting music, hugs, chatting with friends, and playing outside. I am so excited to be back at Camp Carlo for my third summer. Nothing brings me more joy than teaching others to know, love, and serve Christ. Camp is a great environment for this. Two of my favorite saints right now are St. Joseph and St. Gianna Molla. They both have been aiding me in my ministries. St. Joseph’s quiet obedience to the will of the Father and complete trust has helped me in growing in trusting God’s Plan. St. Gianna’s love and total service to those entrusted to her care have assisted me in being more selfless in serving my students. I am grateful to be able to spend another summer in my favorite place! Looking forward to seeing all that this summer has to offer for all who come to Camp Carlo 🙂

Meet Our Counselors!

Dan Milani
Hi! My name is Dan Milani, and I am so excited to return as a counselor this summer for a third year! I have just completed college and am excited to enjoy my last summer, and there is no better way I can think of than serving our Lord at camp. I never feel as alive as I do when I am at camp. There are few other places where the Holy Spirit is so active and I love the way it brings out everyone’s creativity and love of God. I also love how camp allows me to use all my gifts at once. I get to teach, sing, lead, and be silly all the while sharing Christ’s love. It is always an incredible joy to serve campers and watch them grow in their love for Christ in addition to making great friends. I cannot wait to see returning campers, and meet new ones and I couldn’t be more thankful to share the faith and mission at Camp Carlo for a third year! Blessed Carlo Acutis, pray for us!
Abby Criste
HI! My name is Abby! This is my 2nd year as a counselor at Camp Carlo and I'm so excited to return! I live in Morgantown, WV with my family and our German Shepherd, Sarge. I serve the Lord's chicken at my local Chick-Fil-A with my brother, Josh, however, when I'm not working you can usually find me hanging out in my hammock listening to some good tunes, drawing or hiking some trails. Growing up with 7 siblings and having many, many cousins and babysitting on the side has taught me so much about caring for others! I enjoy teaching kids how to glorify the Lord through their unique gifts and talents. It is something I truly love and what better place than the great outdoors! My patron saint is St. Margaret of Antioch. Her courage and willingness to die for our Lord is something I aspire to! Last summer was one of the most fun, faith-filled, inspiring summers of my life and I couldn't be happier to have this opportunity to serve at camp again. See y’all soon!! Viva Christo Rey!
Delaney Byrnes
Hey everybody! My name is Delaney Byrnes, and I’m so excited to be part of the Camp Carlo team this year! I live in Bridgeport, WV, but I’ve been blessed to experience living in many beautiful places because of the Air Force. I grew up with my parents, three siblings, and our sweet Yorkie, Ariel! I love to spend my free time hanging with friends and family, listening to music, or curling up with a good book. One of my favorite authors, G.K. Chesterton, coincidentally shares the same patron saint as me, Saint Francis of Assisi! I’ve always admired his unceasing love for every creature, great and small. I love being out in nature, and I’ve always had a passion for animals, so I’m beyond excited to work with the horse-wrangling team this year! I’m looking forward to spending my summer with everyone, and I hope we can all grow in the Lord’s love!
Maggie Piaskowski
Hi! My name is Maggie Piaskowski. I attend Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia with majors in Musical Theatre and Business Management. I will be a sophomore in the fall. I love singing, dancing, musicals, books, coffee, hiking, and spending time with my friends and family. I am the eighth of ten children, and my favorite color is orange. I am a people person, and I love meeting new people and making friends! My faith has a deep impact on my life, and I am excited to share that at Camp Carlo! I grew up going to a different Catholic camp and also spent some time at Camp Carlo (before it was Camp Carlo). The experiences I had at these places were transformative in my faith and very fun, and I hope to help others have a similar experience. My patron saint is Saint Maria Goretti, and I feel she is a great example of purity, strength, and mercy. She had such great faith and compassion and showed that we are never too young or simple to be a saint. She is also one of the patron saints of young people, and I ask for her intercession over all of our campers. I am so excited to grow in faith and have adventures with everyone this summer!
Zachary Lathwell
Hello my Name is Zachary Lathwell! I just finished my junior year at Shepherd University studying Biology with a Chemistry minor (premed). My goal is to make it into WVU medical school and pursue a degree in family medicine. Hockey has always been a staple of my life. Coming from a large family of 12 kids, there has never been a dull moment in my life, and for that I’m eternally grateful. My patron saint, St. Luke, has given me a shining example about how to follow God throughout my life. God has brought me through many challenges throughout my life. However, He has also given me many blessings for which I could never give enough thanks. As this is my first year as a counselor at Camp Carlo, I will strive to pack it with as much fun as possible but also keep everyone safe as well.
Tomas Hertz
Hello, I’m Tomas, I live in State College, PA. I love Adoration, going to Mass, and the outdoors. I’m an accounting student at Penn State Altoona. In the future I hope to become a private accountant. This is my first time being a camp counselor at Camp Carlo and I am very excited. My confirmation saint is St. Dominic, I chose him because his dedication to the search for and spread of truth really spoke to me. Another person who is not yet a saint but will one day be God-willing, is Ven. Archbishop Sheen. His ability to mix humor into his speeches without taking away from the message was unique. I am very excited for my first time at Camp Carlo. I hope to be able to teach the faith to a new generation of Saints-to-be.
Clare Tupta
Hi everyone!! My name is Clare Tupta and I am from Charleston, WV. I am a rising senior at Ave Maria University studying Theology. I am SO excited for this opportunity that God has given me to serve at Camp Carlo. I believe that the Eucharist is God’s greatest gift to us and I cannot wait to share this with others this summer. I love all things outdoors, quality time, good coffee and learning about our Catholic faith. My patron saint is the lovely St. Therese of Lisieux. I cannot wait to meet everyone and to come to know Bl. Carlo more and more!! Pax!
Nate Lathwell
Hey, my name is Nate Lathwell (Nano), and I am so blessed to be serving at camp carlo this summer as a counselor. I live in Hedgesville WV and plan on attending West Virginia University in the fall for Civil Engineering as well as doing Air Force ROTC in hopes of becoming an officer. My passion has always been in sports, I’ve always loved playing hockey and lacrosse as well as weight lifting. My patron saint is St. Dominic, who has helped me tremendously in my faith life and especially by increasing my devotion to Mary as well as the rosary and teaching me to love unconditionally. I’m so excited to serve at camp carlo this summer and meet everyone, God bless.????
Peter Zelis
I’m Peter, and I’m from York PA. I am studying Supply Chain and Operations at Penn State and will be a senior this coming year. I love the outdoors, running, calisthenics, working out, biking, backpacking, any and all sports, and living life to the fullest. My patron saint is Saint Boniface. I thought it was super cool how he unapologetically trail-blazed Catholicism into Central Europe and is much of the reason Europe, as a whole, ended up converting. I participated in Manus Christi here at the Mary Help of Christians Pastoral Center back in high school. Since then I have always wanted to spend a whole summer here rather than just one week. I spent the previous summer on an internship in Milwaukee. As awesome of an experience as that was, I am far more stoked to be here in West Virginia this summer, living a life engaged in service of the campers, staff and ultimately God. More than anything I strive to be a saint, for there is nothing greater in this life or the next which we as humans can obtain. I hope to model that being intensely catholic doesn’t have to be boring.
Amanda Strub
Greetings! My name is Amanda Strub and I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I love reading books that come alive, listening to music that makes life dance, and seeing God’s beauty in creation, especially animals! I am taking time off school to try my hand at learning to make text sing, music paint, or colors live and grow in my relationships with friends and God–as they are truly the ones who make any adventure I undertake worthwhile! My patron saint is St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, who I was drawn to due to her great trust in God through trials and suffering. I’ve also been recently interested in St. Faustina and her deep love for Jesus and His mercy. Their close relationship with Christ from their devotion and reliance on Him is a great model to me. I am so excited for the adventure and challenge this summer will be, living in God’s creation with wonderful people, and guiding the kids in the faith while growing my own. Camp Carlo was a joy and challenge as a camper; I can’t wait to return!
Greg Cashman
Hi. My name is Greg Cashman. I'm the 7th of 9 children and I have 4 brothers and 4 sisters. My patron saint is Francis of Assisi. I have been going to Camp Wade since I was 8, and I’m very excited to be a Camp Carlo counselor. I’m excited for this opportunity to learn and grow and meet new people at camp.
Jack Shields
Hello, my name is Jack Shields. I grew up in central West Virginia and now live in Lock Haven Pennsylvania. I love to play sports and I especially love Basketball. I'm a returning counselor at Camp Carlo and can not wait to see returning campers and meet new campers. My favorite part of camp life is watching all the campers when they arrive and then within a few days watching the holy spirit work through each of them to create a beautiful catholic experience. I'm so excited to meet everyone this summer.
Meghan Oddy
Hey everyone! My name is Meghan and I am super stoked to be a camp counselor this summer! I’m a Jersey girl at heart but I just finished up college in Baltimore, Maryland studying mechanical engineering and theology. I feel blessed that the Lord is calling me to serve at Camp Carlo this summer before beginning my full-time job. In my free time I love playing ultimate frisbee, running, and exploring the outdoors. This will be my second time spending a summer in West Virginia and I could not be more excited! My patron saint is St. Cecilia but I also have a strong devotion to St. Martha. I am excited to see how God will work in our lives this summer and I cannot wait to see everyone soon! AMDG!
