Most of you will know him better as Mr. P. Last year, Mr. P marked his 50th summer in the camping industry and this summer will mark his 41st summer at NBB! Mr. P’s background is as a teacher, teaching for many years in the Toronto District School Board in grades 5&6 and in special education. His other unofficial job is as our camp photographer, so we have Mr. P to thank for our wonderful photo albums and slide shows. Mr. P can’t wait to put on his shorts and open the camp gates for another wonderful summer at NBB!
