Jackie has spent most of her summers at camp, most likely to be found in a canoe, building campfires, or telling stories while tumping wannigans. Her years at camp have sparked her passion for connecting with people and nature. Jackie now enjoys watching campers grow up to realize their unique strengths. Her biggest takeaway is the strength of feeling acceptance, belonging and connection that a camp community provides. Jackie believes that this makes a camp culture positive and is transformative for young people. Throughout her career, Jackie has enjoyed various leadership roles and has been fortunate to work in extraordinary schools, camps and communities throughout Canada and internationally. Currently Jackie lives in Creemore, Ontario with her partner Steve, and has two daughters who are exploring the world.

Camp Kandalore recognizes that its work takes place on traditional, ancestral land that has been inhabited by Indigenous people for thousands of years. We are located on Treaty 20 territory, known as the Williams Treaties First Nations: Curve Lake, Rama, Hiawatha, Alderville, Scugog Island, Beausoleil and Georgina Island First Nations.

Kandalore canoe trips also travel through many traditional Indigenous territories across the provinces, predominantly through Treaty 9, Nishnawbe Aski Nation.

We respect their past, present, and future generations, the land, and their traditions. We are grateful for the opportunity to gather, learn, and travel on these lands and waterways.
