Daniel MacCallum is a 21 year old, who grew up as a pastors kid in New Brunswick, but is most recently from Kingston, Ontario. Daniel loves to be active as an avid runner, slackliner, and general outdoor enthusiast, but he is most passionate about the community that is found in any activity. He is a past Kaléo student who has over 7 years of camp ministry experience where he has developed a love for seeing spiritual growth develop in young people. He is specifically passionate about helping young men see how culture views manhood and helping them navigate what God desires for men, and what it means to move from boyhood, to becoming a man of God. Dan is a firm believer that the best place to learn what manhood looks like in the kingdom of God is through living raw unfiltered life in small community.
Sarah McQuarrie grew up in New Brunswick most of her life, she did some schooling in Iqaluit, NU, and spent lots of summers in Northern Ontario at camp. She grew up in camp ministry which has formed a passion to build into the life of young leaders. She attended the Kaléo program 2016-2017, since then she has attended Crandall University in Moncton, NB pursuing a business degree and would like to focus in conflict management. She is two years into her degree and after the internship she plans on returning to finish. She is passionate to get to work with students who have a desire to love Jesus more and push them out of their comfort zones into a life a little fuller as they learn to love Jesus deeper. The community aspect of Christian environments is something that she believes should be taken full advantage of, driving us to love people better as we discover a depth to God through vulnerability in community. Sarah really enjoys running, drinking tea, reading, being on the water, and traveling.
