James likes to take the road less travelled. James spent a lot of his youth travelling across North America, camping, and enjoying the protected parks with his family. This sparked a lifelong interest in the outdoors. Most days James can be found doing some sort of outdoor adventure, paddling, hiking, or camping with his partner and dogs. In 2023 alone he has racked up 165 days of tripping, 90 of them canoe tripping.

James is passionate about outdoor education, conservation, and providing transformative experiences for people through wilderness tripping. James believes that experiential outdoor education aids in personal growth, resilience, emotional well-being and instills environmental stewardship. James has experience working in a variety of outdoor related fields including natural resource management, adventure tourism, wilderness therapy, and wildlife research.

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.
