Get To Know Your Conference Co-Chairs

Jordanna Grossinger (she/her) – Director at Camp Robin Hood

Rachel Kent (she/they) – Regional Manager of Overnight Camping for the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario

Jordanna and Rachel are to return for a second year as conference co-chairs! A note from our co-chairs:

We are thrilled to be returning as co-chairs for the upcoming conference! For us, the opportunity to continue this journey with all of you is one we couldn’t pass up. Get ready for another round of laughter, learning, and maybe a surprise or two along the way. We’re committed to making next year’s conference even better. That means more inspiring speakers from near and far, more engaging roundtable discussions, and more of the topics that matter most to camp leaders like yourselves. We are so grateful to our OCA community, for the endless support and enthusiasm. Together, we’re not just shaping the future of camping – we’re creating memories that will last a lifetime. Here’s to another incredible adventure ahead!
