One of those young men is Steve Kanefsky.
After a wonderful 14 years at the helm, the Kleins passed the baton on to Steve Kanefsky. Steve spent 15 years at Menominee as a camper and then worked as a Counselor, Associate Director, and Director. His great love of camp and its lifestyle led to the realization of his lifelong dream to own and direct Menominee. Steve is a "hands-on" camp owner and director. He knows every camper, their families, and the unique characteristics of each boy. Steve and Bari were married at camp in 2005.
Steve spends his winters working on Camp and coaching Soccer and Basketball.
Steve and Woody have been working together since 1987 when they were co-counselors in the same cabin.

Al Lewis retired after that season, too, and Steve Kanefsky spent his first summer at camp having been recruited by Jeff Schwartz.
At the end of this is past summer, Steve Kanefsky proposed to Bari Freed (whose brother Max is a former camper and now counselor) at home plate of the Senior Diamond.
Eric "Legs" Burling, Michael "Booch" Butcher, Forest "Rodzilla" Rodd, Mike "Nellie" Nelson, "Pistol" Pete Larsen, and Dan "V.J." Vander Jeugdt joined the U.K.'s Ross Allen, "Woody", "Hippo", and former campers turned A.D.'s Allen "Sal" Goodman, Steve "Kanefsk" Kanefsky, Marc "Beers" Beermann, Matt "Goody" Goodhart (whose dad Marc was a camper), and Brett "Boutros, Boutros" Goldman-all bled green with the best of 'em.
And, of course, Steve Kanefsky is now owner/director of the camp we are all honoring.
Bari and Steve
Bari and Steve Starting in 1978, Steve Kanefsky's camp career has spanned all of Menominee's eras.
When Glenn and Dawn took over the reigns in the early '80s, Steve became a key staff member, a dominating softball coach (just ask Kawaga) and eventually an Associate Director. Steve, joined by his brother Larry Kanefsky, was immediately a magnet for the camp coming to camp with friends like Mitch and Lee Malkus and Scott Silver.
Steve Kanefsky, as all winning captains do, took home the Trophy to Wilmette in 1982. The competition against Kawaga is as big as ever. In fact, this past summer C.M. celebrated our first overall win over the camp from Minocqua since 1996. This was in no small measure due to a Menominee 13 & Under Division Sweep at our place and perhaps the largest returning counselor staff in the camp's history with only five new counselors!
Key staff members/former campers/A.D.s that have carried the Green and White proudly in the last few years included Ted Roth, Barry Schwartz, David Schwartz, Peter Ehrlich (who in the '90s joined dad Steve and grandfather Mel as the first third generation camper), David Ehrlich (Jimmy's son and the next third generation guy), Zack Dann, David Davidson, Matt Schwartz, Joe Klein, Scott Marcus, Mike Sweet and AJ Sweet.
Sean Hennick, a five year counselor and fixture at Fantasy Camp, was recruited by Steve from their winter home in Scottsdale.

Steve also built a home just down the path from the infirmary near the sand slide in west woods and is joined by a growing group of Menomineeites who love the North Woods so much they have homes there including: Zack Wagman and Glenn & Dawn on "the Dam Lake", Sandy Cohen, Rich Worsek (son Michael's also a camper), Dave and Don Gutterman in Eagle River, David, Jeff, and Jon Davidson in Arbor Vitae, and Mike and AJ Sweet ("the Sweet Retreat") in Phelps.
That house is where Steve was married to Bari Freed.
Steve met Bari through her brothers, Max and Jake Freed who were both long time Menominee campers.
Steve and Bari were married in September 2005 with many of the CM Family in attendance.
