Tyler Hill Remembers

Jon Lieb and Jonte

Jonathan “Jonty” Gaines and his family are in the thoughts and prayers of Tyler Hill Camp at this time.  Jonty worked at Tyler Hill Camp in the kitchen during the summers of 1986-1990. He became the first Englishman to rise to head breakfast chef, even enjoying his own room as a reward.  Once Jonty’s time at camp camp to an end, he was always heard talking about his days at Tyler Hill.  He ended up becoming a wonderful mathematics teacher for many years. Jonty’s passion, engaging personality, and genuine care for all who crossed his path was unwavering.  Once you met Jonty, you would never forget him.  Tyler Hill Camp remembers him so fondly.

In the photo above, Jonty is pictured to the left of former camp owner Bill Heft.


  • Very sad..he was there when I worked at Tyler Hill….I was a waterfront councillor…(julie-anne douglas)

  • Great guy, a true character and I had the pleasure of spending the summer of 1989 there with him, his cousin Neil, my brother Mark, big Rob and young Giles. Very fond memories.
