Open House (THIS SUNDAY!) and More Staff!

Itching to get back to Pendalouan?
Can't wait for summer?
Need to see Big Blue Lake, the Council Ring of the Great Bear, the Sandlot, or Nikana Lodge at least once more before Summer starts?!?!

Well guess what?
This Sunday is Pendalouan's Spring Open House! This Sunday, May 1st from 1:00pm to 3:30pm, we'll have staff on hand to provide you with everything you need to prepare you for this upcoming summer or to reconnect with this magical place. Take a tour, speak to directors, go on a canoe ride, shoot an arrow, eat a cookie, and, if you haven't already, sign up for summer camp! Staff will be available to answer questions and explain our ability to help kids make friends while learning about the camp motto, “I’m Third” and the YMCA's four core values of Honesty, Caring, Respect and Responsibility!

We hope to see you there!
But before then, let's meet two more 2011 Summer Staff members, Hannah and Lila!

Hello from Minnesota! I’m Hannah and I cannot wait to be back at Pendy for my second summer! Just thinking about foil dinners and juice pops is making my mouth water. I go to Macalester College in Minnesota and I am studying psychology. Some of my favorite things about camp are groove boarding on Big Blue, singing songs at meals, the square dance, and meeting new people. Only a few short months until the magic begins!

Hey there, campers! I’m Lila and this will be my seventh summer at Camp Pendy! It will be my first year as a counselor. I’m SO excited to spend the summer in the sand lot or on the T-dock or in the Gaga pit. I’m busy finishing off my junior year at Oak Park River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois and, of course, working on my singing voice for camp. I’m looking forward to spending my time in the Craft Shack or at the barn and meeting new friends the entire summer. I’m counting down the days! Hope to see you there at Big Blue!

Hannah and Lila are pumped for Summer 2011! Aren't you?!?!

Don't forget about this Sunday's Open House! If you have any questions, feel free to call the office at 231-894-4538. If you need directions, our office staff can help you, or you can check out the website at!
