Leelanau Staff Announcement 2011

We are T-minus and less than 85 days away from opening day.  The snow hasn’t melted yet, but I am ready for a Basch Run and a dip in the lake.  After the grueling interview process, which included more than one game of Buck-Buck, a round of Mumbly-Peg (I told Trippy if he made it past Salt and Pepper he could have my job), and an epic game of Knock Out the Crib team has been paired down to only the best of the best.

Camp is right around the corner, and we are gearing up for the best summer of all time!  We will be inaugurating our brand new zip-line.  The lodge will be outfitted for greater practical use.  The soccer field will be playable this year.  Physical elements aside, the staff are hired, prayed up, and ready to take on their greatest duty:  role modeling and sharing the practical demonstration of Christian Science.

So…the moment you’ve all been waiting for…I am pleased to announce The 2011 CRIB TEAM!!
