This year's conference was a tremendous success with close to 150 camping professionals who gathered together for a day or more for community building and professional development.
It was great to see many returning faces and meet many new folks who have joined the camping industry!
We hope all who attended felt rejuvenated from gathering in person with our community after 3 years apart.
There are countless people to thank who pulled off this amazing event but here are a few in particular...
Thank you to the BC Camping Conference Committee of Cassie Bloy, Justin Denny and Dave Horton who have been working year-round to make this event happen! We are also thankful to Paul Bailey for all his work on the committee before leaving on sabbatical in the fall and thanks to Lucas Parmenter who stepped up to fill Paul's place! We are also grateful to Lauren Marghetti for managing the conference website and to the team from Ness Lake Bible Camp for all their support on the auction and with conference tech support for our Keynotes and Workshop presenters. Special shout-out to Cooper Horton from Ness Lake and Robert Harris from Rocky Mountain College for the last-minute support with name tags :)
Another huge thank you to our Keynote Speakers. BCCA Keynote Dr. Chris Thurber and FCC Keynote Sid Koop, our Head Start facilitators Robin Fairley and Matt Castle and close to 30 workshop/roundtable leaders!
