Camp Directors



Camp Manitou has been home to Corina since she started coming to Manitou as a camper over 20 years ago. Fast forward in time and this will be Corina’s eighth year directing Prospectors.

Corina has a loud, energic personality that keeps campers on their toes with all of her fun surprises and games.

Spending the week at Prospector will guarantee a fun filled week with all the activates camp has to offer. With a background in lifeguarding, Corina’s favourite actives are in the water paddling, kayaking, swimming and fishing. Corina aims to provide a fun filled week to create memories and friendships that last a life time. Camp is place where you can be yourself, be silly, make friends, and have more fun than you could imagine. The week wouldn’t be the same without her amazing team of volunteers and councillors who want to make camp a safe and fun place and provide the same amazing experiences.
