Meet Our Staff

Jacky
Creative Director
To me, buildings affect how people live, learn, and work. I’ve always wanted to learn how to make buildings stand and look beautiful. I’m now going into my 4th year of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto. My hobbies include gardening and playing music. A fun fact about me is that I can reach ten keys on a piano.
Megan
Program Director
Did someone say Vogue? I am currently in my 3rd year of Fashion Design at Ryerson University as creating and designing has been a passion of mine since elementary school. I am interested in the process of textiles manufacturing, and how the industry can change to promote sustainability and ethical production. A fun fact about me is I really like mayonnaise so I put it on almost everything!
Claire
Camp Unit Head
I’ve always been a very creative person and knew from a young age that I wanted to go into a design field. I’m now in my 3rd year of Photography and Integrated Digital at Ryerson University. During my spare time, I like to read and go on outdoor adventures. A fun fact about me is I designed a banner on Yonge Street for Canada’s 150th Anniversary.
Heidi
Camp Unit Head
I’ve always been so fascinated by the brain and I’m very passionate about mental health. Now, I’m going into my 3rd year of Biology and Psychology at Queen’s University. During my spare time, I enjoy watching raptors games and playing with my new puppy. A fun fact about me is that I drink a can of diet coke (almost) every day. 
Liz
Camp Unit Head
Since I was young, I was always fascinated by how tiny invisible microorganisms make us feel sick and how our body responds to fight them off. Now, I’m going into my 3rd year at McGill University and am currently studying Microbiology and Immunology. During my spare time, I like to spend time outside, chase sunsets and do photography. A fun fact about me is that I collect sand and love drinking green tea.
Paige
Camp Unit Head
Camp to me is all about building relationships and helping each other be their best, all while having fun. When I am not at camp I am in the Child and Youth studies program at Brock University where I get to learn how to help kids be their best! A fun fact about me is that I love musicals and have seen over 40!
Gareth
Robotics Instructor
From watching BattleBots with my dad as a kid to building my own robots in university, I’ve always enjoyed the creative and technical aspects of design. I acquired my degree in Mechanical Engineering from Carleton University in 2019. In my free time I enjoy playing strategy games with friends either online or in person. A fun fact about me is that I am left-handed.
Joseph
Virtual Camp Instructor
In the fall, I’ll be attending Mcmaster University for Civil Engineering. Learning about history and space have always been my passion and some of my hobbies include reading, graphic design, and photography. If you ever want to talk to someone about Star Trek, I’m all ears. 

-Live long and prosper.

Perry
Virtual Camp Instructor
Growing up, I always enjoyed learning about different types of tools and how everyday objects function. Now I’m in my 3rd year of Mechanical Engineering at McMaster University. During my spare time, I like to play sports and cook. A fun fact about me is that I used to play chess competitively.
