About Our Group
Welcome to Spooner Timber Bay! We are the newest of 13 locations throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. Timber Bay has been mentoring youth since 1970 and we are excited to bring this program to our community!
Navigating life is already a challenge without the setbacks many of us face during the formative stages. At Spooner Timber Bay we believe every teen should have a chance to thrive; that’s why we provide relational, emotional, and spiritual support in fun and practical ways.
How to join: Reach out to Jeannine Warnke, Spooner Area Director, if your student would like to join us.

A message from Jeannine & Bob:
Bob and I share the same vision for coming alongside you and your student to encourage them to be the best version of themselves that God has for them. We will offer opportunities to learn new skills, make new friendships and share in outdoor adventures.
We are blessed to have volunteer staff that shares the same enthusiasm in mentoring youth and sharing God's love. If you know a student who would enjoy this opportunity please contact us!
