After landing at Kandalore in 2021 and leading 2 Explorer and many core canoe trips across the summers, Josh is excited to be leading the OEC team as the Program Director. Josh first caught the “outdoors bug” on a canoe trip through Algonquin in 2017 and he since hasn’t looked back. That canoe trip led him to attend Fleming College for Outdoor Adventure and Education, and subsequently to Kandalore. Alongside those summers, Josh has spent a handful of the other seasons facilitating outdoor education programs and guiding trips in various locations. Josh hopes to continue to build on the great program Kandalore currently offers.
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.
