OUR SCAMPs INSTRUCTORS

All our instructors have many years experience of working with children teaching creative thinking, self expression and community awareness. They all hold Criminal Background Checks for safe working with children and the vulnerable sector.

We provide all-inclusive, non-judgemental and encouraging programming, aimed at all abilities. Each day’s activity will normally provide a take-home creation as well as the experience.

Chantal Vincent

Chantal has taught art in all mediums to kids of all ages for many years. One of Sunbury Shores favourite instructors—generations of children have received her enthusiastic and generous teaching through our CLASS program, working with our local schools. She includes learning about our environment, indigenous peoples, native plants and animals and speaks both English and French.

Genny Simard

As a biologist, Genny worked with the local aquarium and some of the whale watching tour companies before starting Turtle Shore Adventures, focusing on the local wildlife and the fascinating history of our area. She is joining our SCAMPS program this year, providing fun, learning and creativity on our local Trails. Genny has great enthusiasm, going above and beyond to create lasting memories. She speaks both English and French.

Geoff Slater

As an artist, Geoff creates in all mediums – including the St. Andrews’ murals! A youth worker, Geoff was an art instructor at the Kiwanis Community School and Sir James Dunn Academy. As an intervention worker, he replaced Ritalin with paintbrushes, and taught students how to express their feelings in creative, constructive ways. His love of nature means much of his creative work happens outdoors. Geoff will be providing learning and creative inspiration on our local beaches.
