Get To Know Your Conference Co-Chairs

Tito McOuat (he/him) – Senior Director of Operations at Camp Wenonah
Rachel Kent (she/they) – Regional Manager of Overnight Camping for the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario

Jordanna, Tito and Rachel have a wide range of camp experience and are excited to be part of the continued growth of the OCA. A note from our co-chairs:

We are so excited and beyond grateful to be a part of putting on this year’s conference! The OCA conference is a very special time of year for all members, and the three of us have fond

memories from all of the previous conferences we’ve attended. Two big things we hope to accomplish as conference co-chairs are to make sure that the conference is relevant to people like you and the work that you do every day as camp leaders, and to ensure that we create opportunities for networking and connection amongst members. Coming out of the OCA’s 90th anniversary, there’s a lot of incredible wisdom in the minds of the camp leaders that have been working in camp for many years, and our goal is to unlock their wisdom in an engaging way while at the same time elevating and amplifying the voices of the next generation of camp leaders. We are going to work hard to make sure that delegates feel at home and would love your help in making that come true! Feel free to email events@ontariocamps.ca to get more involved!
