Ben Quinn - Operations Manager

Ben fell in love with camp at age 6, and has been
coming to Sasamat ever since. Starting as a camper, he
quickly realized that he is drawn to outdoor recreation
and camping. Ben has worked at Sasamat in several
capacities for 10 years now. Starting as a volunteer
and progressing through various roles from Day Camp
Counsellor to Program Coordinator, Ben has a breadth of experience leading children through the outdoors. He holds a Bachelor’s
in Business Administration and a Diploma in Human Resources
Management. When he’s not at camp, you’ll find him either
at the golf course or the hockey rink, depending on the time of year!
Bob Corbeil- Facility Manager
604-939-2268 Ext 2
Bob comes to Sasamat after a long career in various trades. He is dedicated to furthering Sasamat’s goals - to promote camping and positive outdoor experiences. But, it is the development of leadership he finds particularly intriguing. In his tenure at Sasamat, he has seen, first hand, how quickly leadership abilities (in staff and campers alike) can blossom and inspire others. Bob grew up without camp and never thought any more of it. Sasamat has shown Bob how enriching the camping experience can be and how much he really did miss.
Bob loves to read, mostly history, politics and crime or spy novels. He hikes and loves his garden, and his two dogs, Daisy and Zeus.
