Mel Birtles — Senior Unit Head

First year at camp?

2007: its been 9 years!!!

What are you most excited about returning to camp for?

I'm really excited to discover a whole other side of camp, being in a new position and all! I'm also really excited to sit by a fire and share simple moments with the girls I'll meet this summer.

What's something you're into right now?

I'm really into film photography with old vintage cameras. Things like “cult cameras” such as the Diana or the Holga.

Being a counsellor. Thoughts?

I absolutely LOVE IT! I've had the chance to meet incredible girls over the summers. At times, it can be crazy but... it's totally worth it

Any last words?

I'm kind of trying not to hyperventilate I'm so excited for the summer!
