Staff Directory

Danielle McVicar

Summer Camp Director/Manager

Danielle is excited to join the Camp Goodtimes team as Camp Manager after playing numerous roles in the camp world. Starting her path long ago as a camper in Ontario, she felt inspired to work various positions for ten seasons at her home camp. She then furthered her experience, running multiple camps for kids and families affected by type 1 diabetes across all of Western Canada. She is passionate about creating an empowering atmosphere that facilitates personal growth and improved self-esteem. She believes Camp Goodtimes should be a place where kids are not defined by their diagnoses and feel a strong sense of community. While not immersing herself with camp ins and outs, you will find her outside coaching skiing or climbing mountains on her skis or bike.

Talk to Danielle about anything relating to your Camp Goodtimes experience.

During that time Jenn has also obtained a degree in Fine Arts, taught art to children and developed a love for Camp Nursing as the Camp Nursing Coordinator for specialized camps in Ontario and BC.

Holly Campbell

Youth Leadership Coordinator

Holly is from Ontario where she has spent most of her summers being a camper or a camp counselor. For the past few years in the spring, fall, and winter seasons, Holly worked as an outdoor education program facilitator at an outdoor education centre near Algonquin Park, and in the summer led white water canoe trips around Ontario and Quebec. Working for the CNIB Lake Joe Centre in the summer of 2017 ignited Holly’s passion for using outdoor recreation to foster independence and individual growth. When Holly is not working she is probably out seeking fresh snow to ski, rapids to paddle, or new forest trails to explore.
