Ryan - Ryan Chang, 20, loves ultimate frisbee and will make sure you know it. Tynehead’s very own Tarzan without the abs but with the appropriate camp clothing.  Does not like being called Brian. Still has not caught the spirit after 7 summers, maybe this summer will be his summer. Primary suspect of the disappearance of a certain cheese grater. Super excited to help build tents for campers. Please don’t call him Brian.

Selina - This is Selina’s first year as a Mentorvisor and part of the CTS program overall. Selina loves nature, animals, and all things outdoor related. She grew up in Squamish and developed a deep love for the environment and creating community. After this year she will be going into her final year at the University of Victoria, studying Environmental Studies and Geography. She looks forward to getting to know you all this summer!
