She is passionate about working with children and will be returning to school in the fall to complete a Bachelors in Child Development. In her spare time, she likes to go hiking, on adventures with her dogs, and hangout with family and friends. Sydney is ecstatic for camp and hopes to create a meaningful and fun camp experience for campers, staff, and families, whether it be virtually or in-person!

Hi, my name is Hayley! This is my second year as a Camp Counsellor at the Sharon Temple. I have a degree in Biology and Geography, and just graduated from Teacher’s College with my Bachelor of Education! Aside from working with children, I love hiking, the outdoors, spending time with friends, and learning! I’m excited for another fun summer camp at the Sharon Temple and can’t wait to see all your smiling faces this summer!
