Cierra Phillips - Owner/Director

I am from Barrie, Ontario where I still live, while not at school, with my parents and 2 younger brothers.  I graduated this June (2018) from the University of Guelph Child, Youth and Family program with a Bachelor of Applied Science and my ECE.  I started this day camp out of my cottage at the age of 14.  Since then it has continued to teach me so much about business, leadership and lasting relationships.   Last spring I started a new business called Travel Kid Care which has allowed me combine my love of caring for children and my love of travelling.  Through this business I have met a lovely family from Rosedale who I will be nannying for starting in October.   I spend winter weekends at the Toronto Ski Club.  In the past I have been a member, an athlete, a ski coach, a snowboard coach, an employee for member services and now I look forward to enjoying my weekends with friends and family.  In my spare time I enjoy all water sports, especially surfing, I love to challenge myself by trying new things, my family is extremely important to me and I wouldn't be where I am or be who I am today without them helping me out every step of the way!

I am entering my final year of high school at The Bishop Strachan School this fall and I have been elected House Head at BSS. Working at camp will provide me with the opportunity to apply my leadership skills and experience to make this a great summer for all of those attending. I'm looking forward to meeting all of the new campers and reconnecting with all of those who are returning for another season!!!
