Year-Round Staff Team

Alex Meeking

 

Interim Team Lead

 
After growing up in Vancouver, Alex spent almost a decade serving in Summer Camp Ministry, while studying and travelling as much as possible. This all led to a move to Ontario and marrying his wife, Michelle, in 2014. After a few years in Ontario running drop-in programs at a local Youth Center, Alex and Michelle transitioned back to the West Coast.

 

While leaning into his growing passion for Youth Ministry, Alex ended up back in Vancouver working as the Student Life Coordinator at a local Christian Secondary School, and Michelle continued work as an oncology nurse.

 

Then, in 2018, Alex joined the Pioneer Pacific team as Program Director. Years later, his role has changed, but his heart for this Team, our Camping Ministry, as well as our greater Pioneer Pacific Community has only grown.

 

Alex loves the work that we do, and is especially excited to see the continued growth of our Youth Leadership Programs. He is keen to grow in this community as he serves and leads.

Year Round Program Directors

 
Harrison spent the first 12 years of his life living at a camp! He also has many years of ministry experience at camps, both as summer staff and 4 years in year-round positions. He is married to his beautiful wife Alli, who grew up going to Pioneer Pacific and eventually was on summer staff there. They are both from Alberta, but they have always loved going out to the west coast. Harrison has recently finished his Bachelor of Commerce from MacEwan University with a major in management and a minor in accounting. Alli has been a teacher for the last 7 years. The goal of their ministry, and life, is to create space for people to connect with God, others, and themselves.

Each year, Pioneer Camp welcomes many young adults to our Summer Camp programs to teach, guide and support campers and oversee activities. These dedicated youth are the most valuable resource that we have. Positions available vary greatly but the same commitment and hard work is necessary for all.

We look for energetic young people who have a heart for God and who are willing to give of their time and energy to be models and mentors to the many campers who come to Pioneer Camp. Check out Summer Staff & Volunteer opportunities below.
