Mary-Elizabeth Dixon

Associate Director

Mary-Elizabeth, MED for short, was raised in Charlotte, NC, and has been spending her summers in Brevard since the age of 8. We are so glad that her love of white water kayaking and the mountains brought her back! She graduated from Furman University with a Bachelors of Music in Choral Education. MED has been dreaming of being a director of a girls camp for years, and is so excited to be part of the Keystone Camp year-round team. She has a long background with the Red Cross as an instructor for both lifeguarding and Wilderness First Aid. With her background in education, her love of the outdoors, and her belief in the power of summer camp, MED hopes to continue the incredible legacy of building up strong young women.

Jessica Page

Director of Equestrian Programs

Jessica has long standing roots at Keystone. She worked every summer during her high school years as one of the barn managers in the Horseback Riding program here at camp. After graduating from Martin Community College with a degree in Equine Technology, and training and showing horses for several years, her roots called her home to Keystone where she serves as Director of Equestrian Programs. Jessica and her husband Jason enjoy the “camp life” here at Keystone with their German Shorthaired Pointer, Beckley.
