Trish McKeough, MSW, RSW.
Camp Director and Manager of Therapeutic Recreation Programs at CDI

Trish is absolutely delighted to be returning to Towhee this summer in her new role as Camp Director. As a lifelong camper, canoeist and outdoor enthusiast, Trish has worked in the camping industry for nearly two decades. The highlight of her camping career is hands down the 10 years she worked at Towhee from 2002 – 2011 in progressively more senior positions including six summers as the year-round Assistant Director. Since leaving Towhee, Trish has stayed with the Integra Program at CDI, first as a Child and Family Therapist and most recently as the Mindfulness Martial Arts Coordinator since 2014. Trish is excited to return to the sunny shores of Haliburton this summer and can be reached at tmckeough@childdevelop.ca.

Madison Turpin
Assistant Director, Programming

Maddy started her journey at Towhee in 2015 as an EXCEL programmer, which built a foundation of love for adventure and wilderness based therapy that only grew over the next three summers at camp, where she fulfilled the roles of EXCEL programmer, Taste of Towhee programmer and EXCEL supervisor. Maddy holds a BA in Criminal Justice and Public Policy along with a minor in Family and Child Studies from the University of Guelph. In her spare time, you can usually find Maddy rock climbing, watching the hockey game or reading a good book! Her hobbies and education have led to many extraordinary work and volunteer opportunities in athletic coaching, sexual health education, fostering literary skills and facilitating social groups for young people. Maddy has also recently joined the team at Pine River Institute in Shelburne Ontario. She is excited to continue to learn and grow this summer as Towhee’s Assistant Director of Programming!

Harry Wenban, MSW, RSW.
Assistant Director, Counselling

Born and raised in Toronto, and summer’s on Georgian’s Bay, Harry grew up with an appreciation of nature that rivals his love of Star Wars. He first became involved with Integra CDI at the age of 12, as a client, in their Mindfulness Martial Arts and Towhee programs. After several years as a camper at Towhee, and earning his Junior Black Belt in MMA, Harry left for Mount Allison University to major in psychology and sociology, but he just could not stay away. Harry began working with the Towhee Program as a staff in 2012, and over the past six years has been an EXCEL programmer, counselor, support counselor, counselor supervisor, and the assistant director of counselling. Harry has also returned as an instructor in the Integra MMA program and is passionate about providing the quality of service that helped him to be here today. Harry is excited to be continuing his work with the Towhee Program as the Assistant Director of Counselling again this year.
