Hey campers and camp families! My name is Olivia and I will be the Summer Camp Coordinator this year. I am so excited to be joining the PHCG team! I am going into my 4th year of honours psychology at the University of Guelph, and I hope to become an elementary school teacher! I have always loved working with children – I have been an artistic gymnastics coach for five years and I have worked at summer camps for the last 4 summers as a counsellor and inclusion facilitator. I am excited to help inspire staff and campers to grow in confidence, build new friendships, and to have as much fun as possible! I love summer camp and one of my favourite camp games is capture the flag! I am looking forward to getting to know all of the campers and their families, and to have an amazing summer!
Hi everyone! My name is Natalie and I am so excited to be part of the camp staff team this summer. I am currently in university studying science and I have worked as a lifeguard and swim coach.

Hello parents and caregivers! My name is Melissa and I will be one of the Summer Day Camp Facilitators for this year. I am very excited and eager to be working with your child(ren) this summer, and I want to ensure they have a fun and safe camp experience at the Preston Heights Community Group! I enjoy working with children of all ages as it is one of my passions in life. I will be sure to provide a positive and welcoming environment so that all children feel included and respected. Since I enjoy working with children, I pursued my career goal as an Elementary School Teacher where I am a recent graduate at Wilfrid Laurier University. During my five years attending Laurier University, I had the opportunity to be a student teacher and work with many children in the classroom setting. I have also been a tutor for young children, where I worked individually with them to support
their academic achievements. Working with children has made me become a stronger leader - I will strive to work hard in order for your child to feel cared for!

I am so excited to be involved in the summer camp at PHCG! I look forward to having fun with the children at the camp with the different games, activities and events that are being planned. I hope the experience will be positive for all who are involved!
