WELCOME TO CAMP JCC OUR CO-DIRECTORS

Hey everyone! My name is Spencer and I have just finished my fourth year at the University of Lethbridge, having moved into my new program of study, kinesiology! In my spare time I love to listen to music and play sports such as basketball, football, and even disc golf. This is my fifth year at camp JCC and I am very excited to get the summer started! I look forward to seeing some familiar faces as well as some new ones!

Hi! My name is Abi and this will be my fifth summer working at Camp JCC. Some of you may also recognize me from the Time for 2s, Kids ‘R’ Us, and Beyond the Bell programs throughout the year. When not at the JCC, I’m busy pursuing my Bachelor of Sociology at Mount Royal University. I am very eager to see all of the new and returning campers and look forward to spending a super-fun and wonderful summer with you!
