Hello Unicampers!

I am excited to be returning to Unicamp for my 10th year as a Staff Member. I have grown and learned so much by working at Unicamp that has prepared me to be successful in my endeavours outside of camp. The Camp Director position has been split in two this year, the Executive Director and Camp Manager positions. This year I will be the Camp Manager. You will see me on property at camp working in multiple areas of everyday camp life. One aspect of this role that am really excited for is that I will be able to be very hands on in participating in camp work, as our wonderful Executive Director, Mel Horvath-Lucid, handles a lot of the administrative side of the Camp Director Role. Participating in what is happening and being offered at camp is the best part of working at Unicamp!

Something that I have found has stayed a constant at camp is the space we create for our staff to make mistakes, learn, and grow in. It can be difficult for youth and young adults to create these connections and bonds with someone in a mentorship capacity. I have been so fortunate to have found such amazing mentors and positive role models at Unicamp while on staff. This summer I would like to put a personal focus on fostering that safe space for staff and an environment for those connections to grow. A lot of my mentors and role models from camp have turned into close friends, people I can trust and go to to talk about anything. Many of our staff are already such important role models in the lives of our campers.

I am looking forward to some of the exciting changes that are happening at Unicamp this year. Our staffing team is already slowly filling out and looking very promising. See you when the days are warmer and filled with sunshine!
