Kezia Cowtan / Camp Director
Kezia Cowtan is our new Camp Director. Kezia started her camping days as a child at Camp Wabanaki in Ontario. She spent her summers canoeing, kayaking, swimming and out-tripping. When she wasn't at camp, she enjoyed summers and weekends at the family cottage on Lake Ontario. Kezia's family avidly sails both in Ontario and now on the West coast. Kezia has a wealth of experience working in the non-profit and social enterprise sector in Greater Victoria for the last 20 years. Her senior management roles include business development, operations management and marketing expertise. A decade of her work focused on delivering school-age environmental education and youth skill-building programs. Kezia has since worked with Recreation Integration Victoria in partnership with Recreation Oak Bay to facilitate inclusion for disabled children in their recreation programs. Kezia joins the Camp Pringle team to help build lasting camping experiences.
