As the founder of Canadian Adventure Camp, Skip turned his vision into reality in 1975. His dream was to create a place where children could grow and develop within the fun and friendly environment of a supportive camp community. For those of us lucky enough to experience the magic of Canadian Adventure Camp, we are deeply grateful for the special community he created on Lake Temagami.

Skip’s reach and impact extended throughout the Canadian camping community. He was an Honorary Lifetime Member of the Ontario Camps Association. He took great pride in his continued dedication to the important work of the Canadian Camping Association, and the Temagami Community Foundation.

As Skip did for almost 50 years, we look forward to returning to Canadian Adventure Camp this summer. Together, we will honour his legacy as we reunite once again on Adventure Island.
