Cara Casey O'Loughlin
Mark and Cara live in Calgary with their two children Molly and Audrey. On top of running a successful Irish Dance school for many years they have been running Reels in the Rockies for over 5 years now. They are proud to bring Irish Dancers together in a non competitive environment to enjoy nature and make life long memories and friendships. After a few difficult years during Covid-19 and a forest fire that led to cancellations, Mark and Cara are excited to host campers again at the full scale Reels in the Rockies camp for many more years to come.
