Executive Director Gerrit Leewes, or "Wind", has been with camp since 2004.

He began his career with Camp Warwa as a instructor and worked as Program Director before becoming Camp Director and then Executive Director. He is the Past President of the Alberta Camping Association and would like to invite all our families and clients to never hesitate in contacting camp with their questions.
Gerrit, his wife Faith and his two boys Erik and Connor are looking forward to another year filled with great memories!

No one works harder to train our staff and keep our amazing facility running in tip top shape.
