Christa's career with youth engagement began with an after-school program. She went on to work with youth in various capacities; including mentoring youth through outreach work in foster care and group homes, volunteering as a Youth Representative and Research Team Member assisting with youth-related COVID-19 research at the University of Saskatchewan, and participating as a co-chair of the EGADZ Ground Zero Youth Committee guiding the development and opening of a transitional home for at-risk youth. 

She then moved on to her role as Provincial Youth Engagement Coordinator for the Government of Saskatchewan. Her place in this role influenced many changes in the way Government youth services are created and delivered in Saskatchewan and spent time as a Youth Representative on the EGADZ Board of Directors during her time throughout. Now, along with her passion for camping, Christa has found her place as the Program Officer here at SCA and is excited to be a part of the cooperative community, as well as use her knowledge and experience to take Camp Kindling to a new level of fun! When Christa isn't cooking or going to the gym, she's likely curled up reading a book. 

Christa started as the Program Officer in October, 2022 and is ready to connect with everyone to make their experience with Camp Kindling the best it can be.
