MEET THE TEAM!
Hello!! My name is Anja.
Originally I came from Holland and moved to New Zealand when I was 24. Since then I have lived mostly in NZ plus 6 years in the outback of Australia. I left just before the fires started!! I love being at Lakewood Lodge and so does Buddy, my little puppy. Buddy loves playing with the children but be careful as he also loves biting toes!! I am looking forward to meeting you at the lodge.
Hi, I'm Kathryn and I started at Lakewood Lodge in February 2016. I can instruct all the activities here at Lakewood Lodge and I really enjoy teaching low ropes and watch the campers challenge themselves and work as a group.
Motocross is my big passion. I ride a KDX200 bike and love competing. I'm part of the Huntly Club and have been riding bikes since I was 4 years old. I have been racing for the last 6 years.

Hi guys, I'm Georgia but everyone just calls me Kahu!
