Elijah-sm-300x294.jpg

Elijah graduated from McGill University in Montreal with aspirations of becoming a children’s dentist.  After having spent his summers growing up as a camper, counsellor, specialist, Head of Sailing and Program Director at Camp Arowhon in Algonquin Park, his life-long dream of becoming a full-time Camp Director became a reality when he accepted the position of Assistant Director at Camp Arowhon in 2007. After 18 years at Arowhon, he looked to diversify his experience becoming the Associate Director at Camp Manitou and being on the leadership team at Bayview Glen for a summer. Elijah has spent almost 3 decades at camp! He has served on numerous committees with the Ontario Camps Association and spoken at several OCA conferences throughout the years.  Elijah is also an accredited OCA standards visitor, which allows him to keep up with the latest best practices in the camping industry. Elijah is a dynamic and creative leader with tremendous enthusiasm and energy for camp. He is seldom seen without a smile on his face and you can always count on Elijah for a laugh! Elijah knew from a very young age that camp was his happy place and is excited to share his favourite place with his wife Jordi and two boys, Charlie and Max. Camp gave him the confidence to try new things, challenge himself to do better, and to treat others with respect - all while caring for those around him. Elijah is deeply committed to the growth and development of all our campers and staff and is excited to have begun his journey with Tia as a Co-Director starting in 2020.
