Mackenna started coming to camp in 2012 as a camper in cabin five and she’s been hooked on summers at Ahmic Lake ever since! As a competitive swimmer when she was young and a runner throughout highschool, Ak-o-mak has always been Mackenna’s favourite place!
The past three summers Mackenna has been a staff member at Ak-o-mak working as a counsellor and as our waterfront director. When camp is in session, Mackenna can be found running on long cross, teaching paddleboard yoga, & out discovering what plant friends we have in our land community at camp!
Mackenna will graduate from Lakehead University with a degree in Outdoor Recreation, Parks, & Tourism with a concentration in therapeutic recreation this April. Mackenna is a teacher at a forest school in Thunder Bay Ontario during the year and staff at Modo Yoga Thunder Bay. She is eager to share her passion for the outdoors and wellness with all of camp this summer!
