Megan Kis - Summer Arts Day Camps Director (Ages 5-8)

Hi everyone, I'm Megan! I am so excited to join you this summer to be creative and have a blast! I'm big into sports! Hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, you name it, I love it! I am currently studying Nutritional Science at the University of Manitoba, with hope to become a Registered Dietitian! I enjoy spending time at the lake, camping, or hiking in the mountains when I get the opportunity! Last but not least, my favourite food; hot dogs! Can't go wrong with a good BBQ on a summer evening!

Savana Madrid- Summer Arts Day Camps Director (Ages 9-12)

My name is Savana! I am a second-year student at the University of Saint-Boniface. My whole life, I have had an aptitude for the arts, especially in music. During my middle and high school years, I have learnt different dance styles, sang in choir, and have played for many concert bands on flute and alto sax. On top of my love for music, I enjoy making things with my hands. From sketching to sewing, my creativity motivates me to try new things from different cultures and medias. I love travelling, playing video games, and painting galaxies.

Stacey Sawatzky - Summer Arts Day Camps Assistant Director (Ages 5-8)

Hello! My name is Stacey Sawatzky and I am very excited to start my first summer at the Steinbach Arts Council. I have been an Educational Assistant at Arborgate School for the past 4 years and have loved my experiences working there. I have been a very creative person all my life and have found my passion in painting. I also like to stay active and keep busy while playing sports like volleyball and baseball. I can’t wait for all the fun activities we’re going to have and all the new faces I will meet.
