New Silver Lake camp director appointed

Scott Alexander has an Okanagan-wide reputation for enthralling and educating kids and adults over local flora and creepy crawly fauna. And Alexander will now bring that experience to his new role as the Silver Lake camp director.

“We are thrilled that Scott Alexander has joined the Y Team as Silver Lake’s camp director,”  said Rhonda Zakala, the Y's senior manager of communications and camping.

“Scott holds a St. John’s Ambulance Society’s Award of Merit, the Federation of BC Naturalists Award, and the City of Kelowna’s Environmental Achievement Award…just to name a few! That along with Scott’s certifications as a white water/flat water rafting and canoe guide/instructor plus a wilderness survival instructor, children and youth are guaranteed to have a fun and safe summer this year at Silver Lake.”

The public is invited to meet and learn more about Alexander’s Silver Lake Summer Camp programs for kids ages 7-17 at the following upcoming open houses: Saturday, May 26, 9 am to noon at the H2O Adventure + Fitness Centre (4075 Gordon Drive); and Monday, May 28, 4 to 7 pm at the Kelowna Family YMCA-YWCA on Hartman Road in Rutland.

Silver Lake is also available to rent by school and private groups year-round. For more information visit  www.silverlakekidscamp.com or call 250-764-9621, ext. 304.
