I have been part of camp Narnia for as long as I can remember – since 1993 in fact! That is coming up on 30 years! Woah! I have been a camper, an LIP, a counselor, program staff, and I am now a director and owner of this wonderful business. Oh, how things progress! I have been so lucky to be part of this family for so many years, and it has really shaped my life – always for the better! I always choose jobs with kids around and continue to.
Currently I coach gymnastics for ages 6 months to 8 years, and, with a little bit of luck, I will be starting teachers college in September of this year. I live in Vancouver, with my small, wonderful family that includes my partner Kat, and my 2.5 year old son Leo (or Babslan as he is called in the summer).
I love music, soccer, the outdoors, singing, and eating double baked almost croissants. Coffee is good too! I am looking forward to the upcoming years at Camp Narnia! Remember – keep the magic alive!
I have been a part of the Camp Narnia team since 2001, when I arrived at the age of seventeen as a counselor. Despite never having been to the camp as a child, I was a born Narnian!
For six years I returned to Narnia from my various adventures abroad (Hong Kong, Holland, Japan, England, India, and others) to work as Program Staff and the Teen Program Coordinator. When we re-opened camp in 2011, I came back as a volunteer and signed on as a business director in 2013 to help develop our longer-term dreams for Camp Narnia’s future.
When not at Camp Narnia, I have spent most of my time working with non-profit organizations at home and abroad, supporting vulnerable children and families. On the side, I have been a farmer, a youth worker, a fundraiser, and a project manager… but in my heart I am and always will be a camp counsellor.
I come back to Narnia every year because I see the joy it brings to so many kids, including me, the big kid in his 30’s who still looks forward to summer camp each year!
Known to many as Ooby or Oobs, Abby has been coming to camp for many years, and last year finished her 2nd LIP year. Already a cornerstone of the community, we’re so excited to have her back this summer as a first time counselor!
Fiona has been coming to Camp Narnia since she was but a wee bab. One of the senior staff, Fiona has filled almost every role at camp: counselor, cook, camper or coordinator. This year, she is coming back for the full summer as LIP Coordinator, Program Coordinator and Teen Counselor
Shaylee came to us first in 2011 at the age of 13, and has been a counselor at Camp Narnia for 3 year. Best known for being cool with the teens, Shaylee brings hilarious energy and generous empathy to her groups of teens. Look out for her this summer in the wabin circle!
Emma was a counselor last summer, and her kids had a blast, so we’re so excited to see her back again this summer. A long time camper, Emma is committed to showing her campers all the magic of Narnia she got to experience as a child herself. Welcome back Emma!
