Jeff Kittmer 

Jeff owns and operates Wolf Den Expeditions.  He also keeps himself very busy throughout the year with other adventures that range from being a stay at home dad, "Mr. Mom", to yoga instructor, and shaman (Holistic Healer).  He is passionate about providing people with the opportunity to experience nature in its purest form; with the hopes that each person who travels with him will walk away with a deeper connection with Mother Earth and a feeling of being part of a larger family.  Jeff has a background in Outdoor Education, canoe and kayaking instruction, and is an expert in wilderness culinary.  He holds certifications in ORCKA Canoe Trip Leadership and as a Basic Canoeing instructor, Ontario Hike Leader, and Advanced First Aid through Wilderness Medical Associates.

Jenny Groom

Jenny has spent the last 12 years doing anything outdoors, growing up as a city kid in Kingston Ontario who could not wait to get outside. She has spent the last five years leading canoe trips and teaching camp skills to youth and adults alike.Currently she is working on a degree in Health Sciences at McMaster University that will be completed in 2016. Aside from school in the fall and winter months Jenny volunteers for the McMaster Outdoors Club where she oversees the organization and occasionally leads their hiking, whitewater and flatwater camping trips. As for now she aspires to travel, maybe use that handy dandy degree when it is done to get into teacher college and create good times and learning experiences for herself and those around her.
