Meet the Wright's
Wright's Wilderness Camp, was originally built by Wilfred Wright tin the early 1950's on Gullrock Lake in Northwestern Ontario, Canada, five miles south of Red Lake. He cleared the land and built several cabins before he sold it to the Retzky family who renamed it Gullrock Lake Camp. In 1980, Mike and Gerry Weaver took over, renaming it Weaver's Wilderness Camp, and owned and operated it for twenty- three years before selling it to Lee Wright, whose great uncle was none other than the original owner, Wilfred Wright.
Lee Wright was born and raised in Red Lake, spending much of his time in the outdoors. His high school and college summers were spent working at another fishing camp in the area. Many of those years as assistant manager. Lee went on to complete the culinary program at Confederation College in Thunder Bay, only to realize that his real passion was in the fishing camp business.
Lee met Stephanie in the last year of high school, when he was sent out by his boss to look for some cute cabin cleaners to help out on the weekend change-over. It didn't take long before she noticed his handsome good looks and handy-man abilities and fell in love.
Stephanie, a long time resident of Red Lake, also shares a passion for the outdoors. Having graduated from Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, with an Honors Bachelor of Outdoor Recreation, Parks, and Tourism, Stephanie was more than prepared for a career in the outdoor tourism field.
In early 2007, Stephanie and Lee were blessed with a beautiful boy, Sullivan (Sully). Sullivan enjoys being tickled, swimming, dancing, and quad rides with his dad.
In 2009, Andie joined our family. Andie adores her big brother and is rarely anywhere other than his side. However, she is definitly ALL GIRL. She loves dolls, looking at books, and everything PINK!
We look forward to watching them both grow-up, and are excited to share with them great experiences and beautiful memories here at the camp.
