Welcome Ben Creagh and Laura Hume

Please join us in welcoming our Staffing Coordinators for 2010! We are excited to have Ben Creagh and Laura Hume join the program team for our staff recruiting season.

We'll let them introduce themselves:

Hello everyone! I hope this finds you all enjoying the holidays and possibly some snow.

I’m excited to announce I will be joining the Camp Manito-wish Program team as Outpost Director / Staff Recruitment Coordinator. I’ll be working with Laura Hume to find, and hire the most qualified staff by coordinating events throughout the Midwest as well as being the point person for staff recruiting. Soon, we will begin planning for the summer as well.

Recently, I returned from a trip to Chile and Argentinean Patagonia for the month of September. I had an amazing time exploring unfamiliar regions and reconnecting with old friends. It was great to be back down there, and I'm glad to be back in Northern Wisconsin this winter.

Let it snow!

Hey everyone! First off, happy holidays! I hope all of you survived the blizzard of the century. And now a little about me: I have spent the past 3 ½ years on the Western Slope of Colorado working in Wilderness Therapy and as an adaptive ski and snowboard instructor. While nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains I discovered Camp Manito-wish from a few good friends: Karl Welter, Matt Leibfried and Dan Chehayl. Two summers ago I finally joined this phenomenal community when I was given the opportunity to co-lead the Women’s Alaskan Expo in 2008. One summer in Alaska quickly turned into two. Which brings me to this blustery winter day.

Now, I am excited about this new adventure as a Staffing Coordinator with Ben Creagh. Don’t tell anyone, but I think spending a winter in the North Woods is Manito-wish’s best-kept secret.
