The Yearley Team

The Yearley staff ensure that the student’s time at Yearley is safe, fun, and memorable. We may have a small staff, but we are mighty! We come with years of experience at working in the outdoors, with children and adults, in an engaging and knowledgeable way.  All of our staff members have up to date certifications in ‘ORCKA canoe instruction’, ‘Standard First Aid’ and ‘National Lifesaving (NLS)’ in order to keep everyone safe while enjoying our many outdoor activities.

Since 1998, I have been very fortunate and blessed to work at the Yearley Outdoor Centre. It’s been amazing to pursue my passion for the outdoors and nature while sharing experiences with many children and adults over the years.  I can’t think of a more wonderful place to be!  I look forward to meeting you for a time of sharing stories, games, activities, nature, and some wonderful life moments to be remembered.

I feel so fortunate to have been a part of the Yearley team since the winter of 2013. I couldn’t imagine a better job, connecting with nature every day and sharing this passion with others. I look forward to seeing you out here, having tons of fun together, and taking part in so many Yearley adventures that have created lasting memories for thousands of students before you!”

Hi, my name is Stepaen but you can call me “Step”, or you can try and say my name ;). I am very excited to be part of the Yearley team as the Evening Program person. I just started here in 2015 but have been teaching outdoor activities to kids for many years. While I am not at Yearley I am an Education Assistant with Trillium Lakelands District School Board.  I am looking forward to providing a fun, safe, and educational environment for you here at Yearley, but mostly fun. See you soon.

Joy started working as the Yearley custodian during the fall of 2015.  She knows the facility well as a neighbour and former custodian from years ago. It’s wonderful to have her back! Her cheery disposition, attention to detail, and excellent skills are a great asset to the Yearley team.  If you see her smiling face, say ‘hi’!  She loves to meet our visitors!
