Arika, Tim, Manuel, Kalin

I have been playing hockey since age 5. I played for NMU's Womens hockey team 05-06, Attending GVSU for Integrated Sciences/Elementary education I have 3 labradors, one of which is all mine :) I worked at camp last summer and loved it, worked some in the winter...I can't stay away from camp for very long!

Arika is also helping us this Spring with Outdoor Education and is doing a pretty great job so far.

This will be Tim's Sixth summmer at Camp. Tim travels a long way to be at camp each summer. He comes all the away from across lake Michigan from Chicago. His favorite things to do at camp are swim, mountain bike,
canoe, and hike. Tim started going to Camp Pendalouan when he was just a youngster and is now lucky enough to be a counselor. Tim is looking forward to an awesome summer!

My name is Manuel and this will be my second year as counselor at Camp Pendalouan!!! I`m from Colombia, where the best coffee of the world is produced!! I study industrial engineering and I love almost all kind of sports, so this is one of the reasons for which I really enjoy working at camp, besides all the great staff and campers I can meet there. My favorite activities at camp are the climbing wall, bikes, riflery and archery, and the best games are capture the flag and socks war. I'm so excited about this summer and it`s coming so fast, so see you soon!!

Hi Everyone! My name is Kalin, and I am so excited to be working at Camp this summer! This will be my first year at Camp Pendalouan. I went to horseback riding camp for 5 summers when I was younger and fell in love with the "camp" expierience. Currently, I'm just finishing up my first year as a broadcast journalism major at Columbia College in downtown Chicago. Originally from Northville, MI I have been a swimmer ever since I can remember. I absolutley love, music, singing, crafts, and anything having to do with being in the water. I really enjoy meeting new people and having fun so this summer will be a blast! I can't wait!

Two people from Columbia! Well, one is the country and the other the college...but still, it's fairly interesting. Truly we are blessed to have these excellent staff coming out to Camp for the summer.

Outdoor Education is going extremely well. We welcomed Park Elementary last week - their very first time at Camp! And they had an excellent time. Also true for Reeths Puffer and Woodbridge Elementary. Anyone visiting would have seen smiling faces and heard laughter aplenty.

Construction on the new cabin has begun. We currently have a nice square hole waiting to receive the foundation. Building will go on for the next few months, so everyone can see the progress.

Reminder: There will be an Open House on the 20th from 1-4pm. Come out to explore Camp and eat cookies. Many staff will be here for new campers and parents to meet. We are a friendly sort here at Camp.

Registration just keeps climbing! It looks like another fantastic summer lay ahead of us. We can't wait to see you here!
