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

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.
