Zach is very excited to be coming back this summer as the Bantam Boys Section Head! This will be his 7th summer at camp, and after some reflection, he has determined that it is the connections that are made at camp that bring him back every year. Outside of camp, his passions range from playing hockey to jamming out on his ukulele. Zach believes that the Bantam Boys are a very energetic and tight-knit community, where fun is the thing they do best. He is extremely excited to do everything from screaming dining hall cheers to sharing his enthusiasm for being at camp with some new (and returning) faces this summer!

She is honoured to be working with her tallest and kindest friend, Gavin, and hopes all the LIT 1s are preparing themselves for one of the best summer's of their life!
