The Langbart Family invites you to become part of their Merrick Woods family. Jack and Marsha (aka Grammy and Poppa) spent their entire careers in camping, finally dedicating their efforts to Merrick Woods in 1977. Adam, Andy, and Owen were campers, counselors, and now work in key leadership positions at both Merrick Woods and Greenwood Trails. Together, we invite you to discover why "Your Family Grows Up At Merrick Woods!"

With their three daughters by their side, Adam and Amy will work diligently to make sure that every camper shares the positive experiences camp offered them, and make sure the Merrick Woods experience becomes a vital aspect of every camper’s development.
