The Warren Willis United Methodist Camp and Life Enrichment Center would like to formally welcome Elyse Grossman and her husband, Sam Grossman to Fruitland Park!


Elyse will be taking the position of Program Coordinator and we could not be more excited! Elyse attended the Warren Willis UM Summer Camp for 8 years as a camper and served 4 years as a counselor. Elyse’s mother, Lisa Degrenia, is a United Methodist Pastor currently serving at Trinity Church in Sarasota, Fl which allowed Elyse to grow a deep love for the programs we offer at our site, including Clergy Kids Retreat, which she attended for 9 years.

Elyse has her Bachelors of Art in Education with a minor in Psychology from the University of South Florida. She is currently pursuing her Master's degree in School Counseling from the University of South Florida.526285_4511623467788_2018991818_n

Elyse is most looking forward to “being a part of a group that gets to create programs that will support the local church.” We are looking forward to all the innovative and creative ideas Elyse is bringing to the table and cannot wait for the on-coming years of her being the Program Coordinator!
