After graduating from Michigan Technological University in 2002, he has worked at several camps, in various positions and began his tenure with Lookout, Crystalaire and Carvela in 2010.


Prior to his involvement with Camp, he was an engineer designing safety equipment for various industries. However, camping was never far from his heart. 

Curtis has a passion for creating a fun and dynamic culture focusing on equity, inclusion and community.

 

By empowering campers and staff he hopes to provide an atmosphere where children can enjoy the outdoors while experiencing a supportive and engaging community.

Lauren Steed

Office Manager

Lauren joined the camp team in early 2021 with a background in administrative healthcare. She loves connecting with new parents and campers and helping families decide what experience best suits their camper's interests and needs. Lauren was drawn to camp due to the inclusive environment and non competitive atmosphere that allows everyone to express and exist as themselves in an authentic, genuine and safe way. 

She grew up in Northern Michigan, very close to our programs and has had a strong appreciation for nature and the rewards that come with exploring and trying out new things.

When she visited camp for the first time, she could finally understand the magic that the team and past families have been able to share with her. 

 

Lauren has experienced such a fulfilling and warm introduction to the camp world, and she is so excited to continue learning and growing.
