For the past 10 years Antja Thompson was an integral part of Stanford Sierra Conference Center as the associate director. Antja’s key responsibilities were with our summer family camp for Stanford alumni. During her tenure, Antja interviewed over 1,200 Stanford students, hired a new summer staff director each year, and helped the summer program run smoothly. In addition to summer, Antja was responsible for orienting and training our conference staff. Over the years, between spring, summer and fall, Antja trained 32 seasons worth of staff.
We will miss Antja’s unfailing enthusiasm and high spirits. In addition to excelling at her work, Antja is a talented musician and during impromptu performances and the summer music hour, she entertained countless guests with her fiddle playing and amazing singing voice.
Antja was active in the day-to-day operations during all seasons and would jump in to help whenever needed. She is knowledgeable about the area and regularly led nature walks for interested groups.
Antja is staying within the Stanford community and will move to Palo Alto to work on campus with Stanford Athletics in the Outdoor Education Program as the leadership and training coordinator. (Sounds like the perfect position to organize a student, staff or alumni trip to Fallen Leaf Lake!) Thank you Antja for your hard work and dedication and good luck in your new role. We look forward to seeing you on campus and here at Camp.
