Executive Director, Cathy Cryder
Cathy (she/her/hers) lives in Vancouver, on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. She has worked with children, youth and families for over 35 years within the United Church of Canada; various alternate school programs; through summer camps; and with the North Island Crisis and Counselling Centre. This experience – combined with a Bachelor of Physical Education degree and a small business management certificate – have equipped her well to take on the role of Executive Director of Camp Spirit.
Cathy is passionate about our church’s call to meet people in their places of deepest need and believes that Camp Spirit is a faithful and innovative response to that call. She has been involved with Camp Spirit since its inception in 2011 – in fact she acted as site coordinator at the very first week of Camp Spirit in the summer of 2012.
Cathy is mother to three adult children. She loves to get to the beach as much as possible with her dog. Cathy enjoys taking time to be creative and appreciates the process of creating much more than the result. She loves to get outdoors; swim in the ocean; camp on the West Coast of Vancouver Island; walk with friends; and play cards and board games with her family.
