Camp Volunteer Staff
Most of Oak Grove Family Camp activities are run our site host Camp Otterdale’s staff. However, Ten Oaks has a team of amazing Child Wrangler Extraordinaire volunteers who will be around to provide childcare for parents and guardians to attend some adult only activities and workshops. Our families who are present at camp, Programs Manager and Executive Director run the rest of community groups and workshops.
Erica has been involved with the Ten Oaks Project since 2011, and is very excited to be a part of the first Oak Grove Family Camp. She works in human resources for a nonprofit housing provider and is passionate about ending homelessness. Erica holds a Master’s degree in Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership, a BA in Women’s and Gender Studies, and a diploma in Public Relations. She loves nothing more in her spare time than watching awful reality TV with her wonderful wife, Heather, and the three fur children that run their lives: Dora, Ollie, and Rosie. Erica has cultivated an impressive collection of unicorns, is a fan of anything sparkly, and has been known to get extremely competitive on board game night.

Kaeden Seburn (They/He) is a first year Social Work student at Carleton University. They are a camp counsellor in the summers, and are heavily involved in queer and trans organizing and activism during the year. Kaeden’s activism has included running their high school Rainbow Alliance for two years, founding Kind Space’s High School Student Alliance, and delivering presentations on gender diversity. They have also completed co-op placements with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board, the Ten Oaks Project and Kind Space and are involved in activism related to trans health as a member of the Champlain Regional Planning Table for Trans Health Services, the Ontario Provincial Trans Health Expansion Project and Trans Health Information Ottawa. Through these initiatives they have become connected with and have helped to support many other queer and trans youth, adults and families and enjoy connecting and spending time with other members of their communities. In addition to activism, Kaeden has been attending summer camp since the age of 11 and has been working at their childhood summer camp for two summers. Kaeden also enjoys spending time with friends, outer space, and camping. They can often be found having climbed to the top of the nearest tree.
