Phoenix – LIT Director

What is the story behind your camp name?

There's no inspiring story for my camp name, unfortunately. I simply wanted something awesome and fantasy-like, and a mythical fire bird satisfied both criteria. It turns out that the Phoenix can also represent my burning love for campfires.

What is your position this summer and what excites you the most about it?

I will be reprising my role as one half of the Phoenix/Surf Leader-In-Training Director duo this summer. Besides the obvious fact of just being at Camp Douglas all summer, what excites me the most about this position is watching the LITs discover and hone leadership abilities and character traits that they didn’t know they had within them!

What do you love most about Camp Douglas?

What I love most about Camp Douglas is how easy it is to feel God's presence even in the midst of what can be busy and stressful circumstances. The combination of environmental beauty and the strength of community make Camp Douglas both a fantastic place to spend the summer and a profoundly important influence in my life.


Tone – Assistant Worship Director/Program Assistant

What is the story behind your camp name?

Music has always been a huge part of my life. My whole family sings and plays music and I have been studying it since I was five years old! Now in university, I study Music Education. So naturally, I had to find a camp name that played to that part of me. A musical “tone,” being the first thing we learn to play or sing, seemed to fit nicely!

What is your position this summer and what excites you the most about it?

My position this summer is Assistant Worship Director/Program Assistant. I am so excited to share my musical abilities and my faith during camp bible studies, campfire and wherever else as needed. I am also excited to help lead many of the activities for our campers this summer as a Program Assistant. One of my favourite things about teaching is finding a way to make sure that everyone enjoys themselves and is engaged. It’s going to be a lot of fun for everyone!

What do you love most about Camp Douglas?

Camp Douglas is a place where you are surrounded by a plethora of God’s wonderful creations: amazing staff, cool campers, and mesmerizing nature. My favourite day every week is when we all come together at the beach for a BBQ, frisbee, and a swim in the ocean!
