Director, Camp Wapomeo
Clare began as camper at Wapomeo in 1989. That first Kiowa summer kept her mostly on the island, but as she grew, and her skills developed, she started dipping her paddle for ever more distant shores. Clare’s TSC adventures included canoe trips throughout Temagami, Barron River, Kipawa and Biscotasing regions of Ontario and Quebec. In pursuing her education at the University of Toronto, Nipissing University and Queen’s University, Clare has also traversed the Earl Grey Pass; completed field work in the Panamanian rain forest; and a honeymoon down the Stakine River. Amidst those journeys, Clare returned to camp intermittently as the Assistant Outpost Director, Fall Outdoor Ed. Canoeing instructor and most recently, in 2004, as a counsellor on a 50-day canoe trip. Currently a co-operative education teacher in Hunstville, Clare works in the field of experiential education year round. Clare, along with her husband Jeff Mann and their two small sons Ian and Alistair, are thrilled to be returning to camp.

Jay brings 18 summers of TSC experience to his role as Camp Director.
