The following remarks delivered by Jane McCutcheon describe Jeff Bradshaw’s exceptional contribution to camping – provincially, nationally and internationally.

You have been the President of CCA/ACC for the past 4 years…

You have sat as a member of the Steering Committee of the International Camping Fellowship since the 1997 Fourth International Camping Congress that was held in St. Petersburg, Russia…

You recently re-vamped and re-created ICF’s structure so that it can remain globally viable and ready to face the future….

You have presented workshops and leadership training programs worldwide on five different continents….

You have visited and spoken at Provincial Camping Association Conferences across this country…

You have spearheaded a Visioning Exercise to help CCA/ACC determine its future….

You have given thousands of hours of volunteer time to promote this great profession we call Camp.

This gentleman standing before you is an incredible leader and mentor to so many young camp professionals. When I think of someone who leads by example, I think of Jeff. When I think of someone who is always there to support, to listen, to offer advice, to give of his time, I think of Jeff.

So, my good friend, Jeff Bradshaw, on behalf of the Board of Directors of the CCA/ACC, on behalf of your friends in BCCA and across our other great Provincial Camping Associations, it is my honour and my privilege to present you with the 2011 Ron Johnstone Lifetime Achievement Award.
