Meet The Team

Let’s make a few introductions.

Kyle Young

Founder & Festival Director

When he’s not trail running, skiing, or paddling of some sort, you’ll find Kyle working as a creative director and graphic designer ‘making pretty pictures for a living’.


Kyle has spread roots in the Southern Georgian Bay area with his wife, son, and Golden Retriever Maple. He believes there are few things better in life than a good day spent outdoors with family or friends, and a great craft beer.

Shannon Ambeau

Community Partnerships

Shannon has built a career in corporate sales and marketing over the past 20 years and is now channelling her enthusiasm into a cause she believes in.


Passions include fitness, nutrition, reading, and any activity that gets her out in the great outdoors, any time, any season.

Jessica Gilfillan

Social Media Maven

Jess is a freelance developer/designer/content writer and part-time instructor at Georgian College. When not typing on a keyboard, Jess is also an aspiring yogi and meditation practitioner.


Her happy place is anywhere in nature.
