Since his first year as counselor in 1999, JR Clark's love for the campers has driven him to seek more opportunities to provide recreational excellence to the special needs community. Mr. Clark was elected to the Board of Directors in 2003 and has served since, the last 5 years as President of the Board.
During his tenor as President, Camp Dream has experienced explosive growth by: Increased number of camping sessions, increased geographical reach, improved quality of service to the campers, increased notoriety/ public exposure and a 5-fold increase in number of campers served annually.
Mr. Clark uses his more than 40 years experience as a business owner to provide leadership, business acumen and resolve to continue the growth of Camp Dream into the future. While JR is a testament to the strength of the Camp Dream Foundation's Board, he never takes himself too seriously, at Camp he is known as the 'goose pooper scooper'. During his free time, JR is an avid Nascar Racing fan and is active in both the Georgia JCI Senate and the GA Jaycees Rebel Corps.
