Welcome to Camp Timberlane

Meet Our Directors

Camp Timberlane is a camp for boys located in Wisconsin's North Woods, just north of Minocqua, WI. 2020 is our 60TH summer of camping fun and friendship! Each year 160 boys from over 30 cities across the US join us for 4 or 8 weeks of wholesome, outdoor fun in a genuinely non-competitive environment.

Mike & Leslie Cohen have directed Timberlane for more than 35 years.
Mike grew up going to summer camp. He worked as a children’s ski
instructor in Colorado, and was a Little League baseball coach for more
than 15 years. Leslie was a professor at the University of Arizona for
25 years. She keeps a close eye on our younger campers, while also
managing our medical, office, and food service staff.

Sam Kahn is spending his 20th summer at Timberlane. He grew up as a
Timberlane camper, and has filled multiple leadership and administrative
roles at camp over his years. He has been a middle school teacher for the
last 6 years.

Sam, Mike & Leslie are our co-directors as ownership transitions to Sam
over the next few summers. Our team includes Assistant Directors, all of
whom are dedicated, compassionate professionals, and have decades
of Timberlane experience. Together, we are a skilled and fun group of
leaders, focused on providing support and guidance to our campers
and counselors.

We invite you to contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss your summer goals for your son.  We can help!

Our Amazing Staff

Our staff is the most crucial part of a positive and successful summer for our campers. We're very careful in selecting them. We have roughly 85 folks on our staff, a large number of whom are returning from prior summers. Many were campers at Timberlane, growing up through our leadership training program. Our recruiting and selection process for new counselors and trip leaders is meticulous and comprehensive.
