About mary-kay amos and CONSULTING Services

Being a Day Camp Director for over 20 years has provided Mary-Kay with a variety of opportunities to learn from industry experts, and hone her own professional skills in the Day Camp industry in Ontario, Canada.  

May-Kay is an Early Childhood Educator who is also an Aquatic Management Professional with the Lifesaving Society and is certified as a Day Camp Director with the American Camping Association.  She began her career in the Health, Fitness, and Recreation industry at the YMCA Kitchener and went on to become a General Manager of a number of fitness clubs with a major fitness chain in Canada.  She then moved into the program creation side of the recreation and fitness industry by implementing camps and other recreational programs for children at exclusive Racquet and Health Clubs in Mississauga.  Over the years Mary-Kay has also owned a personal training company, been a freelance yoga and fitness instructor, and worked as an Educational Assistant with both the Halton and Upper Grand District School Boards.    

From marketing, and staff training, to policy creation and implementation, to curriculum and programming, and even facility zoning, planning, and construction, funding, and grant application submissions there is no area of the profession that she has not had an active part in developing professionally within at this point in her career.  

Dealing with the changes required in the industry to weather the storm of the 2020 and 2021 camp seasons with regards to Covid-19 risk mitigation, policy, procedure, and engagement with Public Health agencies has added to her knowledge and experience base.  

Mary-Kay is excited to bring all of that and her genuine enthusiasm for the industry to your camp, fitness business or program in order to help to make it a success!  

She is now also a Certified Forest School Director and is excited to bring this aspect of her training to the table to see how that can tie into working with existing Forest Schools, Outdoor Pre-schools, and Outdoor Education based programs as well.  

What an exciting time to get the kids OUTSIDE to enjoy a safe opportunity that has never had more meaning than it does at this moment in time.  Getting kids back to camp and connected to one another and outstanding programs is what it is all about!  Consultation packages can be customized or you can plan a meeting with Mary-Kay to review your program or facility on an hourly basis.
