Alain’s first year at Camp Ahmek was in 2004 as a Bantam Counsellor. Being born in South Africa, and immigrating to Canada in 1994, Alain never knew about camps first-hand and his only experience with camping (in North America) was with his family’s annual trips to Algonquin Park. Over the past 11 summers Alain has worked as a Counsellor, Resident Artist, a Section Director, a Long-Trip Guide and Assistant Director of Ahmek. Since 2013 Alain has been working full time in the camp office as the Head of Personnel, Tripping, and Operations. Outside of camp life, Alain has put his teaching degree to the test by working in schools across the TDSB as a mentor and counsellor for at-risk-youth as well as youth leaders in their respective communities. He is an avid painter and has been classically trained in visual arts. Canoe trip, Canoe Lake, TSC, and Algonquin Park have all influenced his life and, naturally, his paintings.
