Heather Beggs Varner

Camp Director

Heather has a long history of involvement with North Carolina Yearly Meeting. A former member of Quaker Lake's summer staff and a long time camper herself, Heather knows first hand the impact Quaker Lake can have on an individual.


A graduate of High Point University, Heather's career journey led her from sales, marketing, and management to this wonderful opportunity to live out a lifelong dream of giving back to something so instrumental in shaping her life.


Her husband, Jeff Varner, and children Jackson, Seth, and Emma share this enthusiasm and love for the outdoors.


Summer Staff

We understand the tremendous amount of trust it takes to send your child to camp and we take that responsibility seriously. Therefore, our staff consists of creative, spiritual, and energetic leaders who are carefully selected and trained for each individual position.
