G’day guys, I’m Matt. If you get a call, text or email after signing up it’s likely to be from me! Having lived and worked extensively in both the US and Canada, I’m more than happy to help out with any questions you may have, even if they aren’t camp related!
Hey folks! My name is Nikki and I’m based down under in Melbourne. I have the privilege of interviewing our special Aussie applicants and assisting them throughout the entire application process to prepare them for placement. Having completed 6 summers myself in the US, 2 of those spending majority of the time in Canada has left an indescribable impact that I only hope for all future applicants to experience.
Hey Hey! My name's Jonathan and I grew up In Michigan, but spent every summer, except for one, in Canada. I'm constantly energized and driven by the impact that the organized camping industry has on people's lives and it's ability to foster a strong sense of community. I love doing yoga, riding my bike and spending time with my family. I feel so fortunate to get to work with such an amazingly talented and dedicated group of people and it's inspiring and refreshing to meet and greet all of the incredibly excited participants that come through the Camp Canada program each year.
Hi Everyone! I was born and raised in Canada and spent my summers growing up at a camp in Northern Ontario. I met my husband at summer camp when I was working there as a Counsellor and we now have three incredible daughters together. We also work together at Camp Canada to help people around the world experience the magic of summer camp. I am an Immigration Consultant and provide immigration support for our camps and participants.
Hi! I’m JC and have been part of the placement team at Camp Canada for the past 6 seasons. Originally from the UK, I planned to go to camp for just 1 summer, but spent 5 summers working on an island-based camp in Ontario. My summers led to me having the greatest adventures of my life, and meeting the most incredible people. I’m now proud to call Canada my home, and I love introducing fellow internationals to this beautiful country.
Hey friends! I'm Camilla and I'm from Leeds, UK. I moved to Canada in 2009 on a working holiday, never left, and am proud to call myself a Canadian citizen since 2018. I worked at camp in the USA for four summers before joining Camp Canada by Nyquest, and that was a huge gateway for me into the power of cultural exchange, jumping outside of your comfort zone and having the courage to go further. Outside of making dreams happen in Canada, I love to bike, hike, and knit!
Ay’up me ducks! I’m Sammy and I was born in Nottingham in the UK. I went to a special needs camp for 3 summers as a drama instructor/general counsellor in Ontario. Some of my favourite moments at camp were running campfire skits and helping build campers self-confidence through my program! I now lead the Community Success team in Toronto. I love to spread positivity and help others feel supported and this job gives me that chance! When I’m not working, you may find me attending/performing in the theatre, out on Lake Ontario paddling for a dragon boat team or exploring the Canadian countryside.
Hi there, I'm Taylor! I was born in Toronto, but spent 9 years living in Tennessee. My love of camp started when I was 8 years old, and attended camp for my first summer! Having moved from Toronto, to Tennessee, and back again, I guess you can say that summer camp has been the most consistent (and best) thing in my life! I attended a camp in Ontario for 22 years and have been lucky enough to see camp from many different perspectives, as a camper, counsellors, unit head, and eventually worked my way up to being the staff coordinator and camper tracker. I am on the Placement Team here at Camp Canada and can't wait to share the magic of summer camp!
Hey guys! My name is Aly and I was born and raised in Wicklow, Ireland. I've been working at a camp in Quebec for the past four summers and have done a variety of different jobs there; I was a camp nanny, a head counsellor and most recently the head of programming. I absolutely love working at camp, and I'm so happy to be working on the Placement Team so that others can have the same amazing camp experience!
Hey! I'm Rob and I've been working on the Camp Canada program for three years, helping coordinate the joining of NYQUEST and Smaller Earth into the premier Camp brand in the Canadian market, with offices in over a dozen countries. Prior to this work I ran the Smaller Earth office in Australia, sending hundreds of incredible Aussies on cultural exchange experiences, and trying to get to grips with what's going on in an Aussie rules football game. We're so excited about the potential of this team & program and the incredible experiences we can create for young people all over the world and Canadian Camps.
I’m Harry! I am originally from the South Coast of the UK but I have been hopping around the world for the past 5 years doing everything from climbing mountains, snowboarding, boarding down volcanoes and best of all, working at camp. I now call Toronto my home and am part of the placement team working with the camp directors making sure we find the perfect placement for you! When I am not in the office, you can find me yelling at the TV pretending I know stuff about basketball. Go raps!
Hello, my name is Aidan and I’m from a city in northern England called Carlisle. I came to Canada in 2015 to work at a summer camp in Ontario as a counselor and ended up having 4 life-changing summers there. Right now, you’ll find me in the Toronto office as part of the community success team or in a random city restaurant putting way too much gravy on my chips (fries). Controversially, I’m not a fan of maple syrup, my passions lie with football (soccer) and camp! I’m beyond excited to be a part of this team!
