catherine meloche-camp supervisor & inclusion co-ordinator
I have been a part of the Redwood family for over 20 years. Having always called Redwood my summer home and after spending a few summers away, I am very excited to be back. This summer I am thrilled to take on a new role as Camp Supervisor & Inclusion Co-ordinator. Throughout the year, I work in a Resource department at a private elementary school in Montreal. I hold a BA in Child Studies and a Masters of Educational Psychology. I am looking forward to working with the section head team, staff members and directly with the campers to ensure that each child has an unforgettable camp experience. I truly enjoy getting to know each camper and working hands-on with the staff to ensure that all of our campers are well-integrated and creating strong connections with their bunk mates and counsellors. Every child is unique and camp is an amazing place for them to grow, and develop confidence, independence and strong relationships. I can't wait to greet each camper on the their first day of camp!
