One of Beacon's greatest blessings is our amazing staff. To celebrate them, and introduce you to who they are, we feature them on our blog: Staff Saturdays!
Staff Name: Ben Guerzon
Camp Name: Baloo
Lives: Toronto, Ontario
How long have you been attending/serving at Beacon?
Since the summer of 2010.
What camp have you helped out at recently and what were some highlights?
Senior Boys 2015. Highlights of being a cabin leader are just the daily interactions with my cabin group. The kids are never a dull moment and it's always surprising to witness their maturity (or lack of, haha) in different situations.
What are your personal favourite food, place and activity at camp?
Food: Scalloped potatoes
Place: That rock in front of the tuck shop
Activity: The Y Game
What are you up to these days?
I’m currently working home renovations. I play hockey whenever I am able. I attend Rexdale Alliance Church and volunteer there in the youth ministries as well as the worship music ministry.
Why do you love volunteering at Beacon?
What better place to worship God than surrounded by his natural and beautiful creation with like-minded peers? And what better place to show the love and grace of Jesus to the kids? Also it's nice to breathe smog-free air for a week.
