Summer Camp Director/Manager
Danielle has had numerous roles in the camp world and feels honoured to be part of the Camp Goodtimes team. Having started her path long ago as a camper in Ontario, she felt inspired to work in various positions at her home camp for 10 seasons. Danielle then furthered her experience by running multiple camps for kids and families affected by type 1 diabetes across western Canada. Danielle 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 feel a strong sense of community and are not defined by their diagnoses. While not immersing herself with the camp’s ins and outs, you will find her outdoors coaching skiing or climbing mountains on her bike or skis.
