DREW GUYLAS - PRESIDENT

What was the first time you were noticed and appreciated by an adult that wasn't your parent?

"As a child, I was fortunate to have lots of adults in my life who helped me to grow. At Camp, I remember a leader from an early canoe trip I went on. His name was Dan and I remember him coaching me through learning how to stern a loaded canoe."

Why is working at summer camp important to you?

What was the first time you were noticed and appreciated by an adult that wasn't your parent?

"It was the first day of my Counsellor In Training program and we were doing a team building activity.  My C.I.T. Head took me aside afterwards and told me that I was a natural leader.  No one had ever said that to me before and it made me change the way I saw myself."

Tracy Morley - Membership

Why is working at summer camp important to you?

"Camp is where I formed lifelong friendships, gained independence and confidence, learned to appreciate the great outdoors, and it shaped the person I am today. I passionately believe every kid should have a similar experience – and the world will be a better place for it!"

BEV UNGER - AWARDS

What do you hope kids get out of camp?

"Positive memories that will help frame who campers are as adults – memories of support and feeling good about themselves; memories of leaders making each camper feel respected and appreciated; memories of endless days of laughter and fun. I like to see new friendships that last a lifetime – those friends who never seem far away no matter the distance. I want kids to be challenged to reach just outside of their comfort zone and explore new opportunities."

Travis Allison - Website, SPeaker Support

What was the first time you were noticed and appreciated by an adult that wasn't your parent?

"It happened at camp (of course!). When I was 11 years old, my counsellor Ian McLean took me outside of our cabin at rest hour one day.
I was scared that I was in trouble but I could not figure out what for.
Ian took just 30 seconds with me and set me on a course for the rest of my life. On that sunny afternoon on Cabin Hill at Kintail he said to me "Travis, you will be a great camp counsellor one day". Up to that point, I don't remember a time that an adult had taken time to see what I was good at and encourage me so directly."

Don Bocking - Member-at-Large

Why is working at camp important to you?

"Working at camp is my life.  Simple.  A chance to impact so many lives of children and youth in such a profound way. Kids should love camp and see it as a second home where they learn skills for life, make friends for life and make memories for life.
