Mike Kinnie is very excited to once again return as camp director! At 4-H Camp Wabasso he was also a camper, a Counselor-In-Training, a Counselor's Aid, a Senior Counselor, Coordinator of Camping & Woodcraft, Program Director/Assistant Director, and Camp Director. His eclectic experience also includes founder and Producing Artistic Director of the Lake Ontario Playhouse and the Thousand Islands Comedy Festival, and the Mayor of Sackets Harbor, NY. He also teaches middle schoolers at the StageDoor Theatre, the Evergreen Country Day School, and the Boulder Mackintosh School and Creative Writing, all in Colorado. He has a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Goddard College and has completed his first novel about an eleven-year-old time-traveling boy.
I'm Jim the Maintenance Man!! I don't really call anywhere my home because I grew up around the world as a Navy brat. I developed my handy skills with two AA degrees from Morrisville Ag and Tech and a Bachelors Degree in History. Camp has consumed 14 years of my life; my first year as maintenance, then six years as the Camp Director, and now another seven years in maintenance. My hobbies include loving music, woodworking, guitar, and impersonating my favorite of the Seven Dwarfs... Grumpy.
Hello! My name is Ian Kinnie. I have been coming to 4-H Camp Wabasso for many years, first as a camper where I learned and came to appreciate the wonders of the great outdoors. I went through the Counselor in Training program and eventually was a Counselor Assistant. Soon thereafter, I was a Junior Counselor, Senior Counselor and last summer Coordinator of the Outdoor Activity Program. This year I will join the camp staff team as the Assistant Director.
