Brent Cameron

We are sad to report that Brent Cameron, founder and Executive Director of SelfDesign Learning Foundation, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 20th in Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson, BC. He was 64 and had been ill with cancer for some time.

Brent was born in Calgary to Neil Cameron and Desley “Bunty” Hyde. With his passing Brent leaves his wife River, and daughters Ilana and Lia.

Over the past 29 years, Brent, an inspiring visionary, innovator, and award-winning educator, positively influenced the lives of thousands of children, young people, families and educators in BC and beyond through the Wondertree, Virtual High, and SelfDesign K-12 programs he pioneered.
