Becca Birnie: Camp Mom / Director

Becca Birnie

The summer of 2018 is Becca’s 15th year at Arrowhead Camp! Before coming to Arrowhead, Becca was a Program Director for Camp Tawingo’s Outdoor Centre, and a grade 3/4 teacher at Tawingo College.

During the year she works as a Librarian at the Dwight Library and has been a supply teacher for the Trillium Lakelands District School Board. At Arrowhead, Becca has been the nature/crafts director, and the camp registrar and works part time in the camp office throughout the year, while staying at home with her and Pats three boys, Jack (9), William (7) and Jeremy (3).

Her favourite spot at camp is in a canoe on the water, and she loves taking the boys for hikes on the biking trails in the camp’s 23 acres of forest.

Our Camp Staff

Our staff consists of exceptional young people who have been very carefully chosen based on their qualifications, personality, maturity and sense of responsibility.

Most of our staff have themselves been Arrowhead campers, and have ‘grown up’ with us. All are certified in First Aid and CPR.

All Arrowhead staff have as their goal the safest and happiest camp experience possible for every camper. Because our counsellors are also instructors in one of our activities, they get to know every camper.
