Wondering about our KidsCamp staff?

Meet our team: Alexander, Caleb and Katelyn!

Hi, I’m Alexander (below left)! I grew up in Kincardine and moved up to the Owen Sound area in 2019. I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Arts at Nipissing University and I’m going into my first year of a Bachelor of Education. Outside of school, I like hiking with my friends, travelling, learning about history, and playing golf. I can’t wait to help make KidsCamp a fun filled summer for all the kids.

 

Hi there! My name is Caleb (below centre), I am going into my second year of a Bachelor of Education at Western University. Away from school, I love to fish, play soccer, walk my dog, and go on hikes. I have a 5-month-old Golden Retriever named Daisy, who keeps me constantly on my toes. I have lived in Owen Sound all my life and love the Grey-Bruce area. I am really looking forward to KidsCamp this summer and making it a fun and enjoyable experience for all kids.

 

My name is Katelyn (below right). I grew up in Sarnia, Ontario. I just recently moved to Grey-Bruce. I am a recent graduate from the Early Childhood Studies program from the University of Guelph. I have worked in the field for 10 years with various age groups as well as with children with exceptionalities. I am starting my first year of a Bachelor of Education this upcoming fall. My hobbies include travelling, going to the beach, and camping. I have a Yorkshire Terrier named Marley. I am looking forward to getting started with KidsCamp this summer.

I wanted to thank the staff of Grey Roots Day Camp for the great experience that they gave my daughter this summer. Jada loved the crafts, fun activities, and learning about the rain forest, Kings and Queens, and about pioneer life.

The staff were friendly, helpful, and energetic. The camp was well organized and the communication was perfect.

Jada said “ I like making the rain maker and growing my bean”. She has not stopped taking about the camp fire. She also said that she liked “playing with friends” and "being with Stacey”.

Thanks again. See you March Break & next summer!

My son is enrolled in the Grey Roots Summer Camp this week for "Vikings Week". He attended last week as well, and had made it very clear to the Camp Counselors that he was "Super Excited" to make Catapults during Viking Week.

First day of Viking Week, my son took ill (not seriously) and had to be picked up early from camp. This also happened to be the same day that the Catapult craft was scheduled for. The staff of the Grey Roots summer camp program went above & beyond by adjusting their scheduled plans for the day so the kids could do the Catapult craft the next day, when my son was back to camp and feeling better, as they knew how much he had been looking forward to it.

To know that the caregivers that your child is spending their day with are so compassionate and caring to offer to do that for my son, showed how dedicated they are to ensuring that all of the kids have great experiences and never leave disappointed while at camp and under their care.

Many, many thanks for making my son's day brighter, and his camp experience memorable. Feeling gratitude and not sharing it is like wrapping Christmas presents and not opening them, so I share my gratitude to you all.
