Dr. Dwight Anderson

Camp Director

Dr. Dwight grew up in Hankinson, North Dakota, a farming town with fewer than 1,000 people.

Dr. Alison Seamans

Camp Director

Dr. Alison’s fondest childhood memories involve spending time with her family camping at state parks throughout Minnesota. She would explore, hike, swim, and enjoy plenty of S’mores fireside. Dr. Alison shares her passion for the outdoors with her husband, Mike, so it makes sense that one of their first investments together was a truck camper. They use it most weekends...

But Dr. Brittany’s passion for Canada runs deep — and wide. “I loved growing up in Canada, and I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to live in so many different parts of the beautiful country,” Dr. Brittany says. “I’ve had the opportunity to experience many of the different landscapes...

Dr. Natalie

During winters in Wisconsin, Natalie learned to sew from her mother and grandmother when she was “old enough not to poke myself with a needle.” She figures that was around fifth or sixth grade, but it was among the many things her family wanted her and her sister to experience and try. In time, Natalie discovered it was great for...

Dr. Alyssa Domico

Camp Director

As a little girl, Alyssa tried many sports, including volleyball, basketball, softball, and hockey. But softball was the one that stuck. As a five-year-old, Alyssa played with eight-year-olds.

Ashley

Camp Counselor

Licensed Dental Assistant and Bachelor of Science (Healthcare Management) Ashley started in karate at the age of 5, and she was a black belt by 11.

Mindi

Camp Counselor

Licensed Dental Assistant One of her fondest childhood memories was her family heading to Powder Ridge in Kimball. “I grew up skiing,” Mindi says. “I have an older sister and two brothers, so it was a big deal for us to go.

Danielle

Camp Counselor

Licensed Dental Assistant Time is tricky for Danielle. For instance, if she could pick any superpower, she thinks she would enjoy time travel.

Oh, and her family also has an adorable...

Serenia

Camp Counselor

Music was a constant throughout Serenia’s childhood. Her mother always had music playing in their home, and they would sing along on car rides. Her mother was intentional to expose her to music from different cultures. They’d attend events with Native American instruments or African drums. “She wanted us to hear other types of music,” Serenia says. Serenia’s mother instilled...

Ashley

Camp Counselor

When she’s not working, Ashley is probably traveling — and we don’t mean by foot, bike, or even car! She averages one trip a month, so it’s not surprising she’s already been to Washington, Oregon, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Alaska this year. Ashley searches for budget-friendly flights to locales that are usually warm and near water, and she...

Stacia

Camp Counselor

The family tradition started in elementary school. “Every single night, my mom gave us ice cream,” Stacia recalls. “Just a treat after dinner. My mom still does this, whenever I go visit.” Two scoops as a kid, not any particular brand or taste, though she does prefer chocolate. Stacia acknowledges that was not the healthiest habit, but she says she...

Laura

It all started with a gift. During her college studies in Mankato, while working part-time at Cub Foods, Laura was at the service desk helping a customer who approached with a pair of succulent plants. “Those are cute,” Laura told the customer.

Kelsey

Camp Counselor

Kelsey can pinpoint when one of her hobbies started, tracing it back to middle school. “I’m a bit of a shopaholic, you could say,” Kelsey says. “Retail therapy makes me feel good. I just love shopping. It’s my happy place and so fun.” She “blames” the passion — or it is an obsession? — on her older sister, Courtney. Kelsey...

Sommer

Camp Counselor

Growing up, when life got crazy or scary, Sommer could always count on her “safe place.” “Hockey was where I went to forget about everything else,” Sommer says. “I played a few other sports, but hockey was the one I looked forward to the most.” Sommer, who is from Saint Joseph, started skating when she was four years old. She...

Abby

Camp Counselor

Abby, like so many children, started with puzzles of farm animals and shapes when she was two years old. Her interest turned into passion, and the number of puzzle pieces just grew and grew.

Nichole

Camp Counselor

In one of her first jobs, Nichole remembers listening to her employer tell stories about different experiences and recipes as a cake decorator. Nichole was fascinated.

Growing up, Lainey didn’t particularly enjoy reading, especially the books “required” at school. “If I found books I liked,” she says, “I had no problem reading them through.” But that was a challenge in her youth, though Lainey really liked the Magic Treehouse books in elementary school. “They were just fun and creative,” Lainey says of the popular series. But...

Erin

Camp Counselor

Erin cannot precisely recall when her fascination with bees started, but she suspects it was a documentary she watched in high school.

Ellie

Camp Counselor

There was so much about volleyball that Ellie enjoyed when she was younger. “I loved the energy,” she recalls. “After every point that you win, you come together as a team and celebrate.

Annie

Camp Counselor

For 13 years, Annie worked in the media center at a middle school. One of her responsibilities was managing the iPads, which obviously kept her very, very busy.

Melissa

Camp Counselor

During COVID, Melissa started to feel the weight of anxiety. “Just how the world was changing with the pandemic and having to navigate that,” Melissa says. “When I would have a lot of emotions, it was something that I could put on paper or put on a canvas.” It was her way to unwind after a long day. “When everything’s...
