Boulette is passionated by different types of things. Musique, of course, but also cinema, physical excercise, cooking and video games. He takes part in these activities not to pass time, but to cultivate his soul as much as he can. This means that he never chooses randomnly. Always at the look out for new experiences and informed of progresses made by his favorite activities, Boulette has a big inconquerable appetite for adventure. He hates resting, even though he knows it is often necessary, and time wasting. He strongly believes that there is always something important to do with the time we have. We have so little of it today, why not use it to the best of our capabilities!
"Koala" being her baptised name, she is probably the only animator to sport her real name! This phenomenon has probably also led her to her special carreer as an entertainer. Not knowing what the future held for her, Koala began taking theatre and dance classes at the age of four! She continued to practice these performing arts as passe times in order to concentrate on acting for seven years! Following this, she focused on dance and never stopped! She has also practiced the violin for four years, but a magical accident made her lose her talent as a musician. This was a very sad incident. Since that, Koala dances frequently at the UQAM univeristy, creates dances from time and time and goes to a lot, a lot, a lot of dance shows. Did I mention that she watches a lot of dance shows? Her goal: that a maximum of kids dance like they have never danced before! Her famous quote: "One dancing koala is better than two that are sleeping!"
Music, theatre, cinema, dance, arts and crafts, smiles....... yum, these words have the same effect on me as eating a piece of my favourite cake - total happiness. Since I was young I've had a passion for all the arts and I love more than anything else sharing my knowledge with kids to help inspire them to follow their dreams. This summer, we're going to have lots of fun sharing our interests. I'll be there to help you when you need it because hey, if I'm called Jedi, it's because Jedis are all peacekeepers just like me. Life is much more fun when everybody's getting along :)
Trèfle is ... Trèfle is... Trèfle is, well intelligentabubbly grumpy. She sometimes feeds on the brains of the youth and connects wires from creativity with logic. Most commonly seen giggling under bedsheets, in tents filled with pegs, or around the corner of a door surrounded with crumbles of wax, pencil residue or paint, Trèfle is a creature of her own kind. She teaches art, apparently. It is told that she is quite mature and cunning in her own way. Don't be disturbed by her silly walks or facial expressions, it truly is her cuddle factor!

The recipe is simple, all it takes is: - Two handfuls of imagination - A couple of activities mixed with laughter, sharing and an infinite amount of fun - Now blend these ingredients into your heart ad cover it with love.
Cappella is carried by the melody, no matter what it is. Kept back by nothing, only it’s own echo can stop it. Her versatility in the field of arts allows for many new adventures ! Her degree in theatre gave her the chance to see that everyone in the world has a voice, no matter what it is. It’s implication is as significant in the community as in the professional world, in the francophone as in the anglophone. Getting all rallied up, she is more than excited that the summer is here, to laugh, improvise, to create rhythms each crazier than the next…She impatiently awaits all the overflowing energy, to create universes, and characters which you will remember for a long time…Cappella is ready with a whole lot of harmony !
Stéréo for Stéréo Love! Stéréo adores music, rhythm and rhymes! Her passion: mixing different styles and art forms and creating. Stéréo's brain is a strange place where bizarre ideas, uninterrupted melodies and animated characters live together. Seeing a great big gang of kids singing and sharing one emotion bring a tear to her eye. Born in the middle of summer, she has been making music since she was little. Sunshine in her soul, Stéréo loves Camp!!
As my name implies, I love to cha-cha, shake and move in all kinds of fun and CRAZY ways! Dancing since before I can remember, I can't imagine a better way to spend my summer than by doing what I love most while exploring different styles of dance with energetic and creative campers. Having been a dance teacher for several years, I have tons of great ideas about how to share some of my favorite aspects of dance and movement in general! Expressing ourselves, interpreting sounds and following beats, this summer is sure to be filled with excitment!

Extremely rare specimen, the wild Kapow has no short fuse and is packed with imagination and fun! This mysterious creature is attracted by the sound of urban music and lights of big cities. We must be careful, the wild Kapow aims to tackle the full force of his imaginary enemies. Always ready for anything (like a Pokemon!), Kapow's not afraid of danger, and always comes out on top.
Odyssey is the name for a big adventure filled with magic and incredibly awesome events: it is exactly what I wish we will live together this summer at the camp! Odyssey is also the title of one of the first theatre plays ever written: you can guess that I indeed LOVE drama! I am currently studying Drama Education to become a Elementary/High School drama teacher: I found a way to mix my love for the arts and my love for children in one amazing career project! First you have to know that I love theatre just as much as Japanese people love rice: a lot! I also love to write, to play music, to enjoy a good movie, to visit art galleries, to take pictures and to read at least 2 books at a time. I also happen to work part-time an Tour Director for scholars groups visiting cities in North America: it is through that job that I discovered how much I get along with children and teenagers! You will witness yourself this summer that I am indeed a FUN-TASTIC person!
Colibri (french for hummingbird) is a prairie songbird from out West. She can be seen buzzing around McGill, where she is studying jazz voice and music education. Colibri loves singing, playing music, dancing, and choir more than anything. She thinks all styles are fun to sing, anything from classical, jazz, pop, rock, and musicals. She’s a curious bird, who hears music everywhere, loves to laugh, and believes anything is possible if you use your imagination. She can’t wait to sing with everyone this summer!
|Listen closely, I will tell you the tale of my camp name. When Mother Nature saw me for the first time I was student at the Management faculty, and she called me Rico. Many years later she came to visit me at the theatre school to watch my play "Winter". My character’s name was Snowman so she has called me "Rico the Snowman" since. After the play, we laughed all night, until my friend Laughter showed up and transformed me into a Human Resources Manager. Since that night, I have been having so much fun with my friends at Camp, and I am glad to be giving the CIT (Counselor-in-Training Camp) program this summer. Today, I declare in my warmest voice, and with my clown-y smile, that I am Rico the Snowman. I vow that I will always love bowties, that I will wash my socks all the summer long and that I will make sure all CITs experience the best camp experience so that they are ready to be next year’s top camp counselor. On your mark ... Get set... Go!!|
