 Campbell "Cam" Saunders (1997-2013) was a sophomore (Grade 10) at Degrassi Community School. Like his Junior Hockey teammates, Cam was handsome and athletic. Unlike his teammates, Cam was gentle, shy, and sweet. But whatever confidence he lacked in social settings, he more than made up for on the ice with his dominating skill. He got along with almost anyone, but was awkward with girls. Not too good at holding grudges, he believed in giving others second chances. Yet he started to grow a dislike for hockey. He tried to be himself at all times, but it's was difficult since everyone is counting on him to be their perfect image, when he just really wanted to fit in.

He was friends with Mike Dallas, Aria Monroe, Trent Michaels, Danny Smith, Ashli Fellom, Hadley MillsTristan MilliganTori Santamaria and was in a relationship with Maya Matlin for the majority of his junior year. He had a conflict with Austin Matthews and they became on good terms, but they eventually became enemies again. Cam was on the Toronto Ice Hounds hockey team as their leading star. He committed suicide following the events of Forever Young (1) due to stress, anxiety issues, loneliness, depression, and a psychological disorder. His suicide is leaving a trail of devastation in its path with school students in pain, wondering what they could have done differently to have helped him and motivated them to help fellow students like him. He was portrayed by Dylan Everett.
