Yowochas Staff

YWCA Edmonton has been providing summer camp experiences on the shores of Lake Wabamun since 1916. Yowochas believes in the incredible power of summer camp and we challenge our campers every day to push themselves outside their comfort zone, to make new friends, and to try new activities. Our staff also helps each camper discover their potential by encouraging them to be courageous, make decisions, solve problems, communicate and connect with one another. It is our mission to teach our campers respect for themselves, others, and the environment.

Terry believes strongly in the experiences and outcomes of summer camping and experiential education. He is driven to ensure that no camper is ever overlooked. He particularly enjoys seeing campers return year after year and watching them progress through our leadership programs and into staff roles. Terry, with his wife Krista, daughter Ruby and son Luke, are excited about being part of Yowochas present and future.
