Mara is an active clinician in the Department of Pediatrics at St. Joseph’s Health Centre and has a private practice in midtown Toronto.

They have made wonderful memories at camp, and can’t wait to make many more for years to come!
Dr. Karen Mandel, MD
Karen has done many things in her 30 year career as a Pediatrician. She is currently the Founder and Director of Durham KidsKare, a comprehensive Pediatric Clinic in Whitby. After working far too hard for far too long, she has decided to come back to Wahanowin during the summer! During the Winter, when she is not working, she likes to fly on the Trapeze!
Dr. Karen Swirsky, MD
When Karen is not at camp, she’s catching babies at St. Michael’s Hospital in downtown Toronto or taking care of families at the family practice clinic across the street. When Karen is not in the Health Centre, she loves to be out and about in camp and integrating into the FUN! She is so excited to be at camp with her family and continuing her forever dream of being a camp doctor!
