The IGRC Camping and Retreat Ministries announced in May that Cassie Leitzen has been hired as the site manager of Little Grassy Camp. Leitzen was raised in small town Iowa, in towns near Dubuque. She received her B.S.S. in Kinesiology and Secondary Education from Cornell College in 2008. After spending time substitute teaching, she was encouraged to consider working at a local summer camp, which she did, and found a place where her passion and calling combined. Cassie spent several years at Pictured Rocks United Methodist Camp building relationships, overseeing and developing programs, supervising staff, maintaining the facility and grounds, and much more. In addition to her time at camp, she has also spent nine years as the middle and high school Youth Leader at her church. Cassie enjoys climbing, kayaking, hiking, and reading in her hammock. She is the proud pet parent of her cat, Storm, and her bearded dragon, Toothless Rex.
