Sharon Hampson: children's entertainer

Camp Kinderland alumnus

Sharon Hampson is a children's entertainer famous for the wildly popular Canadian TV series, Sharon, Lois and Bram's Elephant Show. She attended Camp Kinderland in Brampton, Ontario.

Our Kids: Why did you go to camp?

Sharon Hampson: It was part of the community we lived in and everyone went to the camp.

Our Kids: What is your favourite memory from camp?

Sharon Hampson: I loved the friendships and I loved the singing. On the last day after the first summer of shooting the Elephant Show, I said it felt like a camp goodbye. There was sadness saying goodbye to people you liked and with whom you had shared a powerful experience.

Our Kids: How had camp affected your career success today?

Sharon Hampson: At camp I discovered the joy of people singing together and that, of course, is exactly a fundamental of my career.

Our Kids: Why is summer camp important?

Sharon Hampson: I believe camp provides an opportunity for kids to develop their independence, learn to problem-solve without their parents and build friendships. I don’t know that camp works for everyone, but when it does, it is great.

Our Kids: What advice would you give parents that are afraid to send their kids to summer camp?

Sharon Hampson: Have faith in your children and give them a chance to build their independence.
