Jesse Murphy

Assistant Director, Leadership

2023 marks Jesse’s 13th year at Camp Scugog. Jesse grew up at camp, and has always dreamed of turning his passion for camping into a career, which makes his new role as Assistant Director extra exciting. This year, he looks forward to co-directing Camp Scugog’s Year-Round Leadership Program, supporting Nature School programming, and helping to develop and operate the emerging Leadership Centre. In an effort to continuously grow his skills and knowledge within the camping industry, Jesse has worked at other camps in Ontario including YLCC and Camp Tanamakoon, and even had the opportunity to travel to Australia to work with kids at Kangaroobie. As programs at Camp Scugog continue to grow, Jesse has continued to expand his skills, which is why in the spring of 2023 he began working towards his certification as a Forest and Nature School Practitioner. Outside of camp, Jesse is passionate about sports and holds his diploma in Broadcast Television/Videography from Humber College.
