Our modern facilities and unrivaled 1,100-acre grounds hold spacious dining halls and comfortable cabins, as well as exciting activities that get you up in the air, on an athletic field, or up close and personal with nature.

Lucas Durocher Schools and Groups Director Muskoka Woods

Lucas Durocher


Lucas grew up locally in the Muskoka area, which is where he developed his love for the outdoors. He started working at Muskoka Woods when he was 17 and hasn’t missed a summer since, taking on a range of positions from counselling to managing all arts and athletic activities. Lucas has a degree in Kinesiology from McMaster University and a Bachelor of Education from Nipissing University. His passions include healthy active living, education, sports, the outdoors, and raising up young leaders. He is an authentic leader who cares deeply about the purpose behind his work. Lucas met and married his wife, Kirsten, on the shores of Lake Rosseau and now calls camp his home. You may even see him training for his next triathlon along highway 141.
