I like Taco Johns, thrifting, and reading. The most recent book I read was "To be a Water Protector" by Winona LaDuke, and it was a gamechanger; I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about water consumption in North America. I'm currently in the middle of a Bachelor of Arts up in Canada, it's a little chilly up here so I'm looking forward to that summertime sunshine. I enjoy working with people and watching them grow, that's why I'm incredibly excited to be coming back to LBBC as an LIT Leader!

Hello all! My name is Annika and I'm super excited to be working at Lake Beauty this upcoming summer:) I have been going to camp my whole life, so I've been blessed to have made a lot of memories there over the past many years. One year while camping at Lake Beauty, I was sitting under a canopy as the rain was pouring down which ended up pooling on the canopy, causing it to collapse, and all the water poured directly on my head. I was soaked! Needless to say, I still love camp and am excited to see you all this summer!

Major: Pastoral Ministries

Hello there! My name is Thor and I have the privilege of coming back to LBBC for my third year on staff. I grew up going to camp and loved it, so the opportunity to come and serve on staff is incredibly cool. I enjoy the outdoors, board games, movies (Star Wars especially), books, and perpetually being disappointed by the Vikings. One of my favorite camp stories is the time my cabin moved nearly all the Loon Lodge furniture into our cabin for cabin cleanup. We didn't win and had to immediately move it all back. But it was glorious.
