Summer Camp Director - Devin Kellaway
My name is Devin Kellaway, the Summer Camp Director at Youth University and I’m looking forward to a graduate level education program in education administration. When I’m not working or studying, you’ll catch me biking around the Bruce Trail or practicing piano. I am passionate about making elementary subjects fun and exciting for all students. Youth University has been a fantastic part of my Brock experience since 2009, and has allowed me to experience first-hand the many fantastic experiences that are possible at camp.
