Office Assistant

Kris joined the Manito-wish team in January 2014 as Office Assistant. Dubbed the “Voice of Manito-wish”, Kris is the first-line person to answer phones, greet visitors, alumni and guests. Though relatively new to the full time staff, Kris’s association with Camp actually began at birth. Her family lived on site for 22 years while her father served as caretaker. Kris was also a Manito-wish camper, and her children and grandchildren have carried on the tradition. Prior to working at Manito-wish, she was employed for 25 years at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. .

Testimonials

What a great treat to see 12 advanced trips come in and learn about the trail experiences of each of them. They start at camp, go off on a well planned and executed long wilderness experience, and return to camp on the same day, 12 different groups. No one else does this!
