Our Team

In January of 2016, Cornucopia Lodge and Pack Station came under new ownership and management.

Jeff and Sara Artley, Managers

Jeff and Sara returned to Cornucopia after an 8 year absence.  Having worked for Cornucopia for several years in the the past, they are excited to reacquaint themselves with the area and it's residents (both 2 and 4 legged!).  Jeff ensures exacting standards are met in all horse and outdoor related activities as well as keeping all the cabins and equipment in top operating condition.

While Sara insists that she's "just an old camp cook", guests are adamant that her food rivals the finest restaurants.  In addition to setting a mean table, Sara also heads up the office, but, she still finds ways to spend an occasional day on the trail - either helping Jeff pack mules or leading trail rides.  Together, Jeff and Sara ensure that guests have an unforgettable experience while visiting Cornucopia.

Also shown in the picture is Josie, who we lost in August.  But... be sure and prepare for lots of puppy love from the new baby Border Collie, Pickett!

Tom Gonzalez, Maintenance & Guest Services

After a decade in the northeast as Park Ranger, Tom returned to his roots in the west.  He spent a year at a mine in Nevada before jumping at the opportunity to join the team at Cornucopia.  Tom assists Jeff with all things maintenance-related.  You may also see him helping with meals.  On his off time, he enjoys spending time with Jack, his 10-year old Pyrenees / Lab cross as they hike or ski the area.  Tom is passionate about the outdoors and loves sharing his knowledge of the area, as well as the environment, with guests.

Aleksey "Lexi" Huff

Head Horse Camp Counselor

An accomplished horse-woman, “Lexi” is also an experienced back-country group leader.  She grew up riding many types of disciplines- ranch/cow work, long distance endurance riding and some English, which makes her very relatable to campers from many types of backgrounds.  Additionally, she has been a 4-H member, orientation leader, led pack trips and day rides at a pack station in the high Sierra's of CA, and recently received her BA in Animal Science from California Polytechnic University (San Luis Obispo).  We are excited about having Lexi as our Head Counselor this year, and know she’s going to do everything in her power to ensure your camper has an amazing, memorable and safe horse camp experience.  Lexi will be with the campers 24/7 and will be responsible for all aspects of the camper’s experience, with the number one focus on safety.

Morianna Stephens

Asst Horse Camp Counselor

A “local” girl, Morianna also has “earned her spurs” growing up on her family's small ranch here in eastern Oregon, where she also spent much of her time helping neighboring ranchers, participated in Rodeo, English riding and as an intern for a veterinary hospital.  She has taken leadership courses, was active in 4-H and FFA.  Morianna enjoys teaching, hunting, fishing, and riding and she is looking forward to sharing her love of the outdoors and horses with all the campers.  Morianna will join the campers on all rides and will be staying in camp with them and Lexi.  She will also fulfill a support role (ensuring groceries are in camp, communicating daily with management, etc.)
