Vanessa Totten-Paris 

Vanessa grew up outside of Truro, and always dreamed to have a little farm of her own. She is the owner of Totten-Paris Family Goats, which makes all natural soaps and beauty products out of goat milk. She also takes her goats on the road with her to Birthday Parties, schools, daycares, and the goats have been in 4H with her children. Totten-Paris Family Goats has been in business for 4.5 years. Vanessa is also the event planner of Craft & Vendor Events at the Legion.

She has experience working with children over the last 12 years. She has worked with children as a Student Monitor, an Educational Assistant, and a Pre-Primary Teacher over the last 4 years. Vanessa thrives to help make a difference in kid’s lives and loves the unconditional bonds she’s able to form with them.

Vanessa is a very busy parent; she is actively involved in her children’s sports and activities. Managing her son’s hockey team has been her most recent and rewarding endeavor.

 

“My Daughter has attended the Girl Power Camps in the previous years and she loved it. I thought it was a great camp myself and when the chance came to be a leader, I was very excited for this opportunity to help show some Girl Power to the youth that will attend Girl Power Camp.”

How will online camp work?

Campers will be given a kit they can pick up at the centre before their scheduled camp week which will include any materials needed to complete activities. Kits will include login information for them to access to the online camp activities on the website as well instructions for all the self guided activities.

Participants will be able to pick and choose the order they do activities in and work at what ever time works fort them.

 

Each group of campers will also be invited to a special “Camp day,” (1/2 day of on-site socially distanced activities in person) where we will have activities for them to complete and celebrate their accomplishments from the week.

** Please note that anyone attending the in person 1/2 days will be required to follow our COVID policies and procedures. (Information will be provided upon registration)
