After attending the Trillium Lakelands Arts Camp (TLAC) for the past six years, Trent Vokins (pictured above with TLAC Head Counsellor Nat Gimon and TLAC staff) thought he was saying goodbye to his “home away from home” last year, but we’re excited to have him back for year seven!
After graduating from the Lindsay Collegiate Vocational Institute (LCVI) last year, Trent is now studying at Laurentian/St. Lawrence College to earn his Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN). He’ll be returning to TLAC to support our on-site registered nurse at camp.
Here’s what Trent has to say about his TLAC experience:
What does TLAC mean to you?
“TLAC is my second family, it is my home away from home. It is a place where you can be yourself and let your imagination thrive. It is a place to build friendships that will last a lifetime.”
Why have you decided to return to TLAC this year after graduating from high school?
“TLAC is a part of me. It’s something I look forward to every year. The past six years when I was a student, the amazing staff have made TLAC what it is. I feel like being able to come back and be a TLAC staff member, I can give back and make the camp experience fun and enjoyable for a new student.”
TLAC is for Trillium Lakelands District School Board students in Grades 7 to 12, and offers specialized instruction for Music, Drama, Music Theatre, Dance, and Visual Art within an exciting camp experience. This year, TLAC is taking place from May 19 to 24 at Camp White Pine in Haliburton. Visit tldsb.ca/tlac to learn more about this exciting event.
