After a 4 year hiatus from working at Camp Kintail, I’ve returned and joined the staff of 2016! And it certainly feels good to be back. I had previously worked here from 2008-2012, serving as a counsellor, Program Director, Leader in Training Resource Counsellor, and Assistant Director. I’m currently serving as the Spring Kitchen Manager, and will then act as a senior resource staff member.
Like many staff would say, Kintail holds a special place in my heart. My experience here has been a defining time in my life. My best friends and family are all Kintail alumni. The decision to come back to Kintail was simple. I was looking to leave the city (I’m currently living in Hamilton), and be somewhere where I felt as though I had space for personal growth, the ability to reconnect with Christ, and the opportunity to develop new relationships in community. Camp Kintail checked off all those boxes.
I look forward to what this summer holds. Kintail is a magical place, with surprises around every corner. I hope to be able to share in some of this magic with you all, be it for a day, a week or even the entire summer! If you’re lucky, I’ll have a delicious dessert waiting for you when you arrive!
All the best,
Gianna ‘Guava’ Reinders
