Marc Couture, Camp Director – [email protected]
Marc has been the Director of Camp Potlatch since 2009, having previously overseen operations at accredited summer camps in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. Camping is a part of who Marc is and he has over 20 years of experience to back it up. Marc’s life has drastically changed during his time as Camp Director – he started out a lone wolf in a new camp but quickly got married, purchased a home and started a family. You might catch a glimpse of Marc with both his little guys, Russell and Charles, around Potlatch in 2018!
Harry Constantine, Outdoor Centre Coordinator – [email protected]
New to Camp Potlatch in 2018, Harry is an avid outdoorsman who brings a wealth of experience from a variety of summer camps and outdoor centres throughout the UK and BC. At Potlatch, Harry’s role is to oversee the spring, summer, and fall rental seasons. He works with each rental group individually to design and implement a custom camp experience that’s uniquely their own. Harry also provides key leadership and support to Potlatch’s summer camp programs alongside Katie and Marc. When he’s not at camp, you can find Harry prowling the backcountry searching for powder, or cycling the open road.

Now in her third year with Camp Potlatch, Katie is a camping professional with over a decade of experience in a variety of Ontario-based summer camps.

Katie brings a strong background in Girl Guides camping from Ontario, where she led programs that developed self-esteem, supported personal development and empowered young girls to grow into strong women. In her free time, Katie can be found catching up on all the sports highlights and Toronto Raptors games she can!
