Since 1984, the face and vitality of Camp Cavell has been that of Jill Laidlaw.  For the last thirty-eight years, she has made her indelible mark from the tops of our majestic trees to the ever changing shoreline of Lake Huron. Through her stories and quiet personal interactions with campers to silly songs and chocolate chip cookies, Jill’s presence at camp is undeniable!
