Staff Updates | Meet our team!
We are so excited to welcome our staff back this year! We wanted to add a few more to our team to ensure your needs are met above anything else! Meet our team, ready to jump in and make your stay delightful! Get to know them below.
We also are welcoming our expert cleaning crew back, all who were with us in our previous season. They are so ready to up their already high cleaning standards to ensure you all can relax & enjoy your stay. We have all of our favorites including Renee, Brian, Kaaren, Rian, & Brenna all joining us again!
Anna ┋ Kid Whisperer + Jill-of-all-Trades
We have the honor of welcoming Anna for her third season with us! She’s our favorite ever & the kids absolutely love her! We all took a deep sigh of relief, then jumped with excitement when we found out she was coming back!
Anna is finishing up her senior year at Perpich Arts High School, although now finishing closer to us than she expected. This year looks really different than what she had ever planned for her senior year. We are so lucky to have her early & our lives our brighter with her in it! Here’s an amazing interview of her from her school.
I asked her to share a couple fun facts, “I love music; I can play four different instruments, & I like to think that I can dance after going to an arts school.” Yes Anna, you can dance, and four instruments…what!? We beg her to teach the kids to dance & how to play the ukulele on a weekly basis.
Gerald ┋ Plant Expert + Business Enthusiast
Gerald is joining us for his first season all the way from Uganda! We’re so honored to have him!
Gerald has extensive training in all things agriculture! The number of certificates he holds in AgriStudies is absolutely inspirational! He tells me often when I need to water and deadhead the flowers, when is a good time to fertilize, where we should plant certain flowers, and just shows up with new ones to plant!
Gerald loves animals, especially dogs, in fact they’d certainly be his Patronus. He has the biggest heart, was the first to climb the backside of this climbing wall, and aspires to be a business owner once again.
We honestly think it may be the divine that led us all together. We’ve loved everything about learning about Gerald, his culture, and his experiences. He’s so hard working, and always has the biggest smile. Ask him lots of questions, he loves it.
Gabe ┋ Paraprofessional + Lumberjack + Utility Player
If you were here over the weekends last year, you probably got to meet Gabe, or Mr. Gabe as his students call him. We’re excited to have him back and can’t wait to hear all about his music, book, and movie recommendations!
We get to enjoy Gabe early, coming from Northeast Minneapolis (originally from Alexandria) for the summer, currently helping his students from Cabin 10 by day, and helping us prep for the season by night. We go back 10ish years with Gabe, previously going to the same college, church, our favorite babysitter in the cities, & even working together for about three years prior to moving to the resort.
His favorite resort task is hauling wood with the golf cart, especially during the “golden hour, when the sun is the strongest and the lake sparkles.” His favorite author is Stephen King, but he’s also “ready to branch out.” We ask that you don’t judge him by his music critiques. Gabe is a kind heart, respectful to every living soul. If our kids learn one thing this summer, we’d love them to observe how they are treated by Gabe & how he treats others.
We’re so excited to have them all here this summer! Get to know them & ask them for help at anytime.
