Kim Sedore - B.A.(Hons.), M.A. History and Philosophy of Religion was born in the Newmarket Hospital, and then she was born again, before the age of 2, in a canoe.  She has guided many many trips ranging from overnight to 50 days long, all over Ontario and into Quebec, with the Taylor Statten Camps.  She has been a guide and the co-director of Camp Outlook in Kingston. She has led various camping and hiking trips in the Yukon through her work as a recreation programmer with Dawson City.  She was co-ordinated youth-driven mapping initiatives in Vancouver’s east side.  Her music, her writing, and her glass art are largely informed and inspired by her seasons in the bush, by her seasons in the city, by her studies in comparative religion.

Both Kim and Leslie are committed to holding a high standard in risk management and, if need be, wilderness first aid.
