Campbell "Cam" Saunders (1997-2013) was a sophomore (Grade 10) at Degrassi. Like his Junior Hockey teammates, Campbell was a strong athlete. However, unlike his teammates, Cam was gentle, nice, shy, cool, and sweet. He got along with almost everyone, but was awkward with girls due to being new in the romance department. Not too good at holding grudges, he also believed in giving others a second chance. Cam tried to be himself at all times, but it was difficult since everyone counted on him to be a perfect image when he all wanted is just to fit in. Whatever confidence he lacked in social settings, however, he more than made up for it on the ice with his dominating skills yet, ironically, he disliked hockey.
He was friends with Tristan Milligan, Tori Santamaria, Mike Dallas, and Alli Bhandari, and was in a relationship with Maya Matlin, who was his first love, for the majority of his stint on season 12. Cam disliked Luke Baker, and eventually became enemies with Zig Novak. Cam was on the Toronto Ice Hounds hockey team as their leading star.
He committed suicide following the events of Bitter Sweet Symphony (1) due to stress, anxiety issues, loneliness, depression, and an apparent psychological disorder. His suicide left 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.
