Meet our Counselors!

Hi! My name is Stevie Rudolph and I am the oldest of 4 kids, my siblings are the best! I love my family, reading and just about anything to do with the outdoors. I went to KOSC myself and looked forward to it every year. I am now beyond excited to have the opportunity to show your children this amazing camp.
Hi, I'm Madison Rudolph! I am a CNC Milling operator and graphic designer in Emeryville, CA. Blessed to come from a big family of hunters, my siblings and I got started young in our hunters safety and love for the outdoors. I had KOSC written in my summer calendar every year from the moment I was old enough, till the moment I graduated high school, and left for college. Now that i am back as a counselor it is my goal to spark this same excitement in future campers!
Hi! I'm Jake Rudolph and my full time job is welding / metal fabrication at RCI I enjoy skateboarding, drawing and most of all hunting as well as shooting guns for sport. KOSC is great because you learn a ton of important and valuable information without even realizing it and at the end of the week... boom! You’re a certified hunter. I would do it 10x over again if I could.
Hi, I’m Andro Peterson and my full time job is working in a restaurant and I’m planning on attending operator school in Sacramento. Some of my favorite hobbies are bass fishing and duck hunting. This is my first year being involved with KOSC and Im thrilled to be part of the team!
