Camp OverviewMeet the Camp Coordinator
Encana Badlands Science Camp welcomes Morgan ("Mogie") Syvertsen back for a seventh season as Camp Coordinator in 2014. He comes to us with many years of experience in mountaineering, backcountry camping, parenting, and professional counselling. As a former teacher and director of non-profit organizations, he brings to Camp a passion for community and a commitment to individual fulfillment.
Mogie’s learn-by-doing philosophy guarantees everyone who attends Encana Badlands Science Camp is given the opportunity to participate in palaeontology, not just observe it. His extensive background in community building and personal development ensures that Campers are safe to explore their environment and discover something new about themselves. Stories from his backcountry adventures – from surviving an avalanche to being pinned down for two days on top of a mountain – should prove entertaining, if not educational!
Don’t be fooled by the pretty face – behind that beard is a young man looking for adventure.
