Kayla Manzanares

Kayla is the nurse manager for health services at Camp Belknap.  It will be her 2nd summer at Belknap.  In this role she oversees the management of Belknap’s health team of greater than 10 staff each summer and leads health center operations including supplies, policies, and training.

Kayla graduated from Pomona College undergraduate and returned for a nursing degree at the University of Colorado.  She has spent most of her nursing career in Hospice and is a skilled listener and communicator.  She has been a travel nurse, has filled almost all roles you can imagine, and is a fluent Spanish speaker.  She is now working in the hospital setting in Colorado when she is not at camp. 

Kayla lives in Salida, Colorado with her husband Phillip (who has been known to make the best Belknap desserts) and their two daughters Auretta and Leona who love being staff kids at Belknap.
