Our Staff

Lord Somers Camp and Power House has a small but dedicated staff team to support the daily operations of our organisation. Our employees support our members and volunteers to develop and run our programs. This friendly bunch of people can be found both in our head office at Albert Park and at our campsite at Somers.


Bruce Simons has been an educator for over 30 years, having taught Mathematics and held several leadership roles including Head of Year 12 and VCE Coordinator

at Haileybury College, and then serving as Principal of The Hamilton and Alexandra College and later as Head of the Australian International School in Hong Kong.

Bruce has served on several not-for-profit organisation Boards including The Victorian Branch of the Associated Heads of Independent Schools Australia

AHISA, and with Independent Schools Victoria ISV. He has also chaired and served on the Board of the Victorian Ecumenical Schools System VESS. 

Over the years, many of his Hamilton students attended Lord Somers Camp, and he has known a number of members through family and other associations.
