Meet the Team

staff-canoe-trip

Moose River Outpost is blessed with some amazing assets. We have 7000 acres of property, piles of white water rafts, dozens of beautifully crafted log buildings, but the thing we are most proud of is the caliber of our summer staff. From our kitchen staff to our raft guides to our cabin counselors, every one is a hard worker, a willing learner, and a diligent follower of Christ.

 

We draw this capable group from leading colleges and universities across the country including Princeton Theological Seminary, Wheaton College, Georgetown, Gordon College, Cairn University, Colby College, Biola University, and many others. Keep this team in your prayers as they serve our campers and guests with every talent that God has entrusted to them.

They have three children: Mayne, Brayden and Saydie. Seth is not just someone who knows how to run a camp. He also understands the heart of the ministry. He grew up going to camp himself at Deerfoot Lodge, learning from mentors in the outdoors, and encountering God in His creation. Seth can be reached here.
