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 I’m Ben! I’m from London in the UK and I am the Survival instructor at Lakewood Lodge. I’ll be teaching you all sorts of cool stuff like building shelters, rescuing casualties and making fires. Plus you’ll get to do the best activity of all: our awesome mud run!
Now and again you might also see me instructing archery or low ropes down at the Lodge or otherwise just hanging out with you all. Make sure you give me a wave if you see me driving past on my quadbike! I look forward to seeing you here soon.
Hi! I'm Kimberley, but you can call me Kim. Some of my biggest passions are flying planes and astronomy. I even did a few years at university learning about space and other planets. In my free time, you'll usually catch me planning my next hike with my american bulldog, Rex, or flying a plane around the country. Hope to see you at camp soon!
Hi everyone my name is Olivia! You will most likely find me at the climbing wall or playing the piano in the lodge. When I’m not at Lakewood I love spending time with all my own animals, like my pet pig, Dot. I love art, and my dream is to be a graphic designer one day.
Hi guys, I'm Georgia but everyone just calls me Kahu! I'm a proud girl scout of Ohio's heartland and here you'll find me hanging out with our horses, at the archery range or singing and dancing at the disco. I'm the youngest member of staff and keep everyone young! I'm always full of energy and weird random facts. Can't wait to see you all at camp!
Hello! My name is Callum, I am 24 years old and from Scotland. I am a sporty individual who loves the outdoors. Growing up I played a lot of rugby and a variety of other sports. You’ll find me taking sessions at the climbing wall or kayaking by the lake. I am excited to meet you at Lakewood Lodge and hopefully I’ll get the chance to teach you some new skills.
Hi! My name is Fiona and I'm an instructor here at Lakewood Lodge. I have spent some time in the UK and Asia but New Zealand is my home for the outdoors and nature. You will usually find me teaching archery or feeding Kevin the rooster. Hope to see you at camp soon so we can enjoy the fun activities!
