Peter Newton, Food Service Director

Peter Leads our kitchen staff. If you’ve eaten at Moose River Outpost, you know that our food is part of what makes this place feel like home. We have a tradition of great cooking, and Peter has carried the torch and continued that tradition well during his time here at MRO. Peter has worked in food service at Crown College, in Minnesota and at Deerfoot Lodge, in New York State. Having worked at camps before, he knows that the kitchen is the heart of the camp. Next time you’re filling your coffee mug, be sure to say hello to Pete.
