Here are a handful of the incredible young adults serving at Pine Lake this summer. We can't wait for you to meet these superheroes in person!
Caleb, Cabin Leader:
Hello everybody! My name is Caleb, and I’m a junior at Cornell College studying secondary education and English. I am looking forward to my second summer working at Pine Lake, especially for swimming in the lake, evening worships, and camp out! In my free time, I like to run, read, and play card games, and a Rubik’s Cube can usually be found somewhere in my backpack. Here’s to a great summer!
Jacob, Waterfront Coordinator:
Hi, I'm Jacob! I’m most excited to grow in my faith with all of my swimmers and paddlers this summer in God's light at Pine Lake Camp! My favorite bible verse is 2 Corinthians 5:17, “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”. This shows that it’s never too late to turn to Christ, and you’re not a “lesser” person because of it, you’re a loved child of God no matter what.

(You’ll love it too!) Fun fact about me: yes, I do watch Christmas movies all year long. I'm really looking forward to camp, and and I am most excited for campfires at Sunset Sing!
Aaron (a.k.a Polar Bear), Kitchen Assistant
Hey, my name is Aaron! Or as many prefer to call me Polar Bear. This will be my second year on camp staff at Pine Lake. I'm excited for a new summer full of new experiences and new people. I am currently a Culinary student at Madison Area College and I work on a snow removal team and at a scrap yard when it's not snowing.

Griffin, Ministry Specialist:
Hi, I’m Griffen. A little bit about myself is that I am actually from Texas and have never been to Wisconsin. Secondly, I feel called to become an ordained pastor for the ELCA. Lastly, my dream vacation would be going to Seattle, Washington. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and for this new experience with Crossways!

Fun fact about myself: since the 2nd grade I’ve wanted to be a nurse! My favorite Bible verse is John 13:7, "'You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” This verse excites me for what the summer holds and how it will impact my life in the years to come!
