Craig has been the Director at Timberline Ranch for over 12 years, and has worked in youth and camping for over 25 years, including years with Youth For Christ and the One Way Adventure Foundation. He loves travelling (when he can get away), hiking, European board games, reading, and doing anything with his family. He lives onsite with his wife Leanne (“Lego”) and his two teenagers, Ben (“Dash”), and Lorelle (“Violet”). He holds a Masters in Theological Studies (ACTS/ TWU), and is passionate about teaching, training, and discipling. His favorite movie is Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, from which he gets his camp name, and his favorite animated character is Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon, mainly because of his abilities to fly, spew fire, and wreck us with his sad, puppy-dog eyes.
Dobson has been with Timberline for over eight years and plays a huge part in staffing and making the program run well. He is married to Cindi and has four children: Olivia, Sabrina, Malcom, and Natasha. He has previous experience as a youth pastor in Saskatchewan and in construction, and he holds a Masters of Christian Studies from Regent College. A lover of sports, Dobson was pretty excited to get his photo taken with Wayne Gretzky when he was ten (Dobson was ten; Wayne was much older). His hobbies include golfing, hiking, reading, and playing guitar, and he loves to visit the Oregon Coast whenever possible. His favorite animated character is Homer Simpson (must be the donuts), and his favorite movie is The Princess Bride, which we find entirely “inconceivable.”
Megan has worked as Office Manager for over 11 years, keeping our guest groups organized and our director in line (at least most of the time). She met her husband Andrew at Timberline, and they have a lovely little daughter. Her interests include baking, reading, playing with her daughter, and snorkeling, and she would rather be in Maui than just about anywhere. Prior to the Ranch, Megan grew up on the Sunshine Coast, went to Vancouver for school, and ended up working at the Sutton Place Hotel. Her favorite movie is Finding Nemo, and her favorite animated character is King Julien from Madagascar. Without Megan, nobody would know what was going on most of the time.
Anuschka is our newest full-time staff member, having joined us in April 2016, after a successful and varied career in cooking, tourism, gardening, and retail. She is married to Rene, and they have two teenage daughters, Alora, and Kalina, as well as two cats and a dog. Anuschka’s interests include adventure travels with her family, swimming, listening to old records, camping, and trying to help people pronounce and spell her name correctly. Her favorite movies include La Vita Bella and the Star Wars franchise. One of her passions is her volunteer work with Celebrate Recovery. Anuschka has a Russian first name, a French last name, and speaks Dutch. Hopefully she’ll sort that all out and just keep cooking great meals.
Grady has worked and volunteered at Timberline for over a decade and was a camper here, starting at eight years old. He has worked full-time at the Ranch for over two years. His interests include playing in a jazz band, woodworking, fixing things, being outside, cooking, and graphic design. He previously worked at a tool store, doing graphic design and videography. His favorite destination is Disneyland, his favorite movie is Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and his favorite animated character is Sven from Frozen. Grady is also our tech guy, and we’re thankful someone around here can figure out the internet issues. He holds the record at Timberline for “dying” in skits, sometimes week after week after week….
