Meet the Selah Team:


Camp Owner/ Creative Director

My name is Lori.  I'm a wife to my high school sweetheart, mama to 3 daughters, Teacher of the Deaf, and Summer Camp Owner.  I am so excited to host our third year of SELAH RETREATS!  

When we bought this sports camp 6 years ago, I had the idea to hang a sign that said, "SELAH" over the lodge door facing the lake. Selah is a word from the book of Psalms in the Bible, meaning to Pause & Reflect.  When I started dreaming of this idea for a creative soul retreat, I realized that the word SELAH would be a perfect description!

How many of us, as women, think that "pausing" is a luxury?  Camp is a great place to do just that - pause from the typical household & family tasks, turn off your smart phone (doesn't work that well here anyway), & let someone else run your kids to soccer games or football practice, just for a day. This getaway is about being mindful of the creativity within our souls.  Don't worry if you think it's hidden away; it will reappear! 


Art Teacher

Melissa resides in Sullivan County, PA with her wonderful husband (Eric) and two children (Benjamin and Ayla). She has been a PA certified public art teacher since 2005. She taught for 8 years at Fairfield Area School District, in Adams County, as an elementary art teacher. In 2015,  God made a clear path for Melissa and her family to move back into the Endless Mountains where her husband is now the care-taker at her childhood homestead of Camp Brule`. She is currently teaching art to K-6 graders at Sullivan County School District.


Her true passion is to serve Christ with the talents He has given her. Her goal at Selah is to foster an atmosphere that brings people together while creating art in a stress free environment.



Certified Yoga Instructor

Jenn has been a Group Fitness Instructor since 2011, teaching everything from Turbo Kick to P90X to PiYo. She found her love of yoga after teaching higher intensity classes and needing a more restorative format. She currently teaches in multiple locations across Bradford, Sullivan, & Tioga counties.  

Jenn became a certified Instructor (R-HYI) through Holy Yoga after searching for something that would combine her love of Jesus with her new found love of yoga. Jenn re-named her practice ‘Soul Yoga’, which embraces the essential elements of yoga: breath work, meditation and physical postures. In all of these elements, Christ is the focus of our intention and worship.

For this retreat, Jenn will be teaching different levels of classes that you can pick from (or take them all)!!

  • Saturday morning Vinyasa class for all levels  

  • Saturday afternoon Power class by the pool for Intermediate levels

  • Saturday late evening restorative class to wind down and relax

  • 2 early morning energizing classes to get the day started on Sunday

  • Sunday late morning full-hour session of Soul Yoga. This will be our way of enjoying Chapel in the woods.

Jenn lives in LeRoy, PA with her husband of 16 years, Kevin, and her 3 children, Emily, Melanie, & Tyler.
