YMCA Camp Elphinstone's reply:Hi Aaron,
Team of YMCA Camp Elphinstone
I oversee all private event and outdoor education operations at YMCA Camp Elphinstone. Originally from Ontario, I moved to British Columbia and started at Camp Elphinstone in 2018. I love to see couples turn their perfect day into a perfect weekend, making the most out of our picturesque oceanfront property, lush rainforest, and outdoor activities.
Assistant Director, Private Events
As the Assistant Director for Private Events, I work closely with every couple, starting with the first tour and some dreams and ideas, to build the perfect wedding, and making sure every detail is flawless right down to the goodbyes. I'm originally from Ontario, but call the Sunshine Coast home now. I've been with Camp Elphinstone since 2018. Like every couple, each wedding at Camp Elphinstone is unique and I love the challenge and diversity in what we do.
