Who is yoyojoe? Well it is me – Joe Richards.
I am a Camp Management Professional with experience in:
Public Relations – Marketing – Staffing – Site Management
Here is how I describe myself on my resume:
Dynamic camp professional with 10 years of management experience and degree in Outdoor Recreation, Parks & Tourism. Skilled in marketing, promotion, personnel recruiting & development, site management, budget control, web design & program development. Professional recognized speaker, presenter & entertainer at numerous camping conferences with superior communication & presentation skills.
I can also tell you about my wife and kids and how I make a living working at summer camp…
You might like to know that in the past I’ve been a DJ, a vacum cleaner salesman, Santa Claus and a professional clown…
What am I passionate about? I’m passionate about making sure that every child has the opportunity to experience summer camp. I believe in summer camp with all my being. My parents met at summer camp; both my brothers met their wives at the same summer camp; I met my wife while at Lakehead University – taking Outdoor Recreation – so I could work at camp for the rest of my life. I now live on-site at a summer camp and retreat facility that is part of the United Church of Canada’s camping network. The United Church Camping Network is the largest single residential camping organization in Canada.
