Summer 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 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.
Summer Director, Camp Ahmek
Greg 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.
