We're thrilled to have Alex Leask back in Camping  and Outdoor Services, where she began her camping career as a summer staff member at Belwood in 2005. Over the summers, she also spent time at Ki-Wa-Y and the Outdoor Centre, in a variety of resource positions including Waterfront Director, L.I.T Trainer,  Outdoor Centre Program Instructor, Cook, and more. Most recently, Alex has spent the last four summers with the Stork Family YMCA and the A.R. Kaufman Family YMCA supervising the summer day camps. Now, she works in Outdoor Services, where she will oversee the day camping programs in Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo.

Alex has a degree in Physical Education from Brock, and during her studies, worked at the YMCA of Niagara in Aquatics and Children's programming.

As we begin to shift all of our day camps to become more outdoor and nature based, we are excited to have Alex on board, to share her personal and professional passion in kids' camping, and the great value of an outdoor experience.
