    Darin joined our Leadership Team in April, 2020. Darin has long been connected with Kinasao, first coming to camp in 1988 while on tour with a singing team from CLBI. Darin and his wife, Anna, were married at Kinasao and became cabin owners in 2012. Darin's camp, governance, and administrative experience are a great blessing to our team! Darin and his family live at camp in the summer months and in Saskatoon the rest of the year.

    Kristi has worked at Kinasao in various roles since 2005. She began her role as Assistant Director in 2010 and oversees many different areas in the office, as well as food services.  Kristi spends the summer living at camp, and the rest of the year in Prince Albert with her husband Ian and their children Adalynn, Joel, Karina and Elaina.  

  • Lowell Johnson | Site Manager

    Lowell has been serving as Kinasao's Site Manager in a part time capacity since 2022. After 30 years working in the well drilling industry, Lowell is thoroughly enjoying his "retirement".  Lowell is at his happiest when he has either a chainsaw or his granddaughter in his hands....just not at the same time!

  • Sue De Bruijn | Business Manager

    Sue joined the Leadership Team in 2023 to fill in during Kristi's maternity leave.  Her heart for the ministry happening at Kinasao, her creativity and dedication have made her an incredible asset to the Leadership Team.

  • Janaya Hunter | Guest Services Manager

    Janaya joined the Leadership Team in 2023 while serving as Head Cook.  As all the pieces fell into place, Janaya agreed to stay on in a year round capacity, using her gifts of hospitality to care for our guest groups throughout the year.
