Greg Ablisser - Camp Director, AhmekGreg first attended Ahmek as a Mountaineer camper in 1988 (and went on to be a long canoe trip camper and lead a long trip as staff). The friendships and experiences seeded in that first year forged deep, lasting roots and have had major influence in every area of his life. The teamwork and camaraderie experienced on Greg’s canoe trips led him to a career in teaching and a passion for coaching.  Since acquiring his Ontario teaching certification in 2007, Greg has taught and coached students of all grade levels. He currently teaches secondary school in Muskoka focusing on Canada and World Studies, Communications and Media Art. A recurrent theme in all of Greg’s teaching is an appreciation for outdoors and a respect for nature and the deep wilderness. Greg met his wife Katie at TSC and their mutual love of camp life, outdoor adventure and simple living inspired a move from Toronto to Muskoka. They have two young children, Oliver and Annie, and are thrilled to bring their family each summer to the shores of Canoe Lake and pledge their hearts to the Spirit of Ahmek.
