Ben has been guiding at Camp Temagami since 2008, after seven seasons of being a camper. What he loves most about guiding is participating completely in the present moment, feeling highly attuned with his surroundings, being part of a system larger than himself, and eating his favourite trip meal, Chili Mac. Though his home is Toronto, when summer ends, Ben tends to remain in the Temagami region, leading school programs through the fall and winter. He spends his free time playing music and staying active through cycling and travel. Ben has paddled approximately 5000 kilometers.
