Eco-Adventure Camp

Staff

All our staff are Queen’s University students and have a minimum of Standard First Aid with CPR C, and our lifeguards all possess National Lifeguard Service (NLS) certification from the Lifesaving Society of Canada. Counsellors and staff are constantly working hard to ensure a safe and fun camp experience for our campers.

When not studying biology or leading trips for the Queen’s Outdoors Club, Kelly enjoys swimming, canoeing, reading, and making overly-ambitious origami projects. Kelly is excited to return for a third season as Director. Kelly looks forward to spending as much time in and on Elbow Lake as possible, and making sure everyone wears their sunscreen.  

 

Josh (Co-Director)

 

Having risen through the ranks as camper, Leader in Training, and counsellor, Josh is is thrilled to return to Eco-Adventure for his first season as Co-Director!

Josh is a world traveller, sailing enthusiast, and certified lifeguard. He is described by friends as being friendly, hilarious and charismatic. He is described by himself as being all of those things, but also humble. He looks forward to another great summer spent in Elbow Lake!

 

 Jordan (Counsellor)

Jordan is excited to return for his second year as a counsellor! As a biology student minoring in drama, Jordan is qualified to answer any question about nature or theatre campers can throw at him. Everything from “why do plants have leaves” to “to be or not to be?” is fair game.

Jordan is a Chief Scout and Medal of the Maple recipient with Scouts Canada, a swashbuckling swordsman with the Queen’s Fencing Team, certifié bilingue, and a pretty cool guy if he does say so himself.

Brianna (Counsellor)

Brianna is thrilled to be joining Eco-Adventure for the first time! When not studying biology or competing for the Queen’s Nordic Ski Club, Brianna enjoys basketball, hiking, and playing with her four-legged friends.

She is a certified lifeguard and enjoys a variety of aquatic activities. Brianna loves kayaking and canoeing and dreams of one day snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef.

Brianna is looks forward to meeting this year’s campers and is eager to combine both her science and outdoor skills to create an unforgettable camp experience.

Emma (Counsellor)

Emma is entering her fourth year of biology and her fifth year as a lifeguard. She enjoys hiking, video games, basketball (go Raptors!) and playing the ukulele. Her long-term goal is to hike Mount Kilimanjaro but she will stick to Rock Dunder for now.

Emma loves animals, her current favourite being birds (which she hopes to see lots of this summer!). She is excited to instil a love and appreciation for all things nature while imparting the wisdom she’s gained at Queen’s. She is looking forward to summer and meeting all the campers!
