Busy as Bees This May!

What a month it has been at Camp Pendalouan so far! Outdoor Education season is in full swing and we here at camp are working hard to give school groups an incredible experience as they finish up their school year.

As we provide school groups with a learning experience that the classroom cannot provide, we are simultaneously preparing for Summer Camp! Did you know that we have some great new activities and programs this summer? First is our Fine Arts Specialty Camp during Session One and Session Five. Campers will be exposed to a wide variety of different art mediums, including ceramics, painting with acrylics, and drawing with pastels, charcoal and pencils. Campers will be bringing home their projects to share with the family. Second, we are in the process of developing a Water Polo program at camp. This exciting new feature would be available during Cabin Activity Time, Rendezvous (our "Choice Time"), Aquatics Camp, and other Special Waterfront time. Lastly, we are currently fishing ideas from our new staff about new activities to offer based on their unique talents and abilities. We have already talked about a Gymnastics class, a movie making class, and a new and improved nature class with some of our Summer 2011 Staff Members. Can you say, exciting?!

But let's continue our Meet The Staff series! Today we have Tatiana, Myk and Kelly!

Hey everyone! My name is Tatiana and this will be my second year work at camp! Previously, I was a camper for 2 years and a CIT. I am currently a senior at Groves high school and will soon be graduating to attend Michigan State University for education and psychology. I love to dance in the shower, sing in the car, and laugh with my friends. In my spare time I enjoy reading, drawing, and walking my dog. I can't wait for this summer! It's gonna be the best summer ever!!!!!

Hi! I am Myk! I love hanging out with my friends, working out and fixing things like my truck and tractors. I love working with my hands . I also love rockclimbing and doing other sports like wrestling and lacrosse. This year I coached middle school wrestling. We went 13-1! I grew up around animals all my life and I participated in 4H. I am also a hunter, I love to bow hunt. I don't do to much with a gun yet, but I still am good with one.I really enjoy working with kids. I hope from camp that I make a bunch of little friends and have a memorable summer counseling experience!

Hey everyone! My name is Kelly! I'm from Utah, but have spent my summers in Michigan for as long as I can remember. I'm currently finishing up my junior year at Salem Hills High School and can't wait to be done so I can come hang out with all of you at my favorite place ever, Camp Pendalouan! This will be my fourth summer at Pendalouan, but my first as a counselor. I'm so super duper excited!! I cant wait to swim in beautiful Big Blue Lake, play some gaga, capture the flag, eat juice pops, and sing songs! :)

Wow, 2011 is sure going to be one for the books. Won't you join us? Sessions are filling up fast. Check the Pendalouan Facebook Page for discounts, registration information and contact info!
