Émilie Trudeau — Media Coordinator

First year at camp?

2006: I was a junior counsellor and had never really been to a camp before. 

What are you most excited about returning to camp for?

I'm really looking forward to the Girls Matter program. We've been thinking about it for years so it's pretty amazing to finally see it come to fruition! I also can't wait to eat the food, see the people, swim in the lake... but mainly, I can't wait to be able to sing out loud outside again. It's not something you get to do in the city that much. ^^; 

What's something you're into right now?

Everything Cheryl Strayed. I saw the movie WILD a few months ago, which is based on her experience hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, and I've been obsessed ever since. Her Dear Sugar column is so wise and calming. She seems like such an amazing woman.

Being a counsellor. Thoughts?

It's kind of... AWESOME! You get to meet all these amazing young girls who, somehow or other, teach you something new every year. Having been at camp for a while, I also get to see some of them grow from year to year — I feel ridiculously privileged to have the opportunity to be witness to that. 

Any last words?

No, actually... I don't.

Wait yes! Check out 2 Camp Friends! It makes my brain happy when people watch it! ;)
