Valedictorian Lauren Weinberg

Lauren is graduating from the Recreation and Leisure Services diploma program. Growing up in a family of campers, Lauren has been attending camp ever since she was three years old and has worked as a camp counsellor for the last 10 years. In fact, she is currently in her second year as a senior staff member, coordinating and facilitating leadership programs. After finishing her undergraduate degree at Queen’s University, Lauren came to Seneca to turn her love of camping into a career. Her education at Seneca provided a valuable complement to her experience as a camper and counsellor. She believes attending camp allows children to learn essential skills, such as confidence, leadership, and even survival skills, in a holistic environment. In addition to working as a camp counsellor, Lauren was co-ordinator of Clubs & Associations for the Seneca Student Federation, a Seneca SMILE mentor and gave tours of the Seneca King Campus to prospective students. She is also a recipient of the Seneca King Student Administrative Council Award for Leadership. Lauren wishes to spend the rest of her life working in a camp environment, one day even directing her own summer camp.
