Mark and Katie
Hi! My name is Katie and this will be my fourth summer at Camp. Last year I was a CIT and I'm really excited to come back as a counselor this year. I love to swim, and spend as much time in the water that I possibly can! I also love running, biking, playing the guitar, and ultimate frisbee. Some of my favorite things to do at camp include playing capture the flag, kayaking, lake swims, and making s'mores!!! I'm looking forward to an awesome summer :)
Hey Everyone! My name is Mark! And unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the WHOLE summer. But I will be able to come to one of the last two sessions (or maybe even both!). I'm one of those really cool people from Chicago, although next year I'll be going to Carleton College in . I worked as a Junior Counselor last year and was a CIT before that. This will be my 9th summer! I live for Kitchen Staff Parades, opening campfire, special day, riding my bike around Big Blue on weekends, and the Bars at camp (the sand-bar and the rare cupcake bar). I'm so bummed that I won't be able to work for more of the summer. Can't wait to meet and see you all when I come!
(Editor's Note: I was once turned down for a job at Carleton College - which means I ended up at Camp Pendalouan!)
We are truly blessed to have Katie and Mark, even though it won't be for the whole summer. We have met almost all the staff for summer. There are only a few left. We truly have an excellent staff.
Memorial Day weekend Camp was taken over by Kayakers! The West Michigan Coastal Kayakers had their annual symposium for the 14th year here at Camp. They have been doing the Symposium for 18 years and as many of them said: It just keeps getting better. This is always a neat weekend to see all the kayaks on the lake.
There are barely any days until Staff Orientation and Session One! I can barely contain myself. There is much still to do, but Session One is going to be the amazing. All the staff, support and counselor, and all the kids are going to make this the best summer of all time.
I hope you're spending a week with us this summer, and if you aren't, what are you waiting for?
