Open House Recap and Michigan Staff!

Well hello there! Happy Wednesday to you from Big Blue Lake! It is currently 60 degrees and Sunny here at Pendalouan and we are enjoying the nice spring morning while we think about summer camp. If it was a resident camp session, we’d be right about to switch from our 1st Activity Period to our Second. Maybe from Archery to Sports and Games? Or Canoeing to Nature?

Well we had our Spring Open House this past Sunday and it was a blast! We had absolutely amazing weather and offered boating, archery, tours, and the climbing wall for visitors to enjoy and experience. In addition to Alumni that stopped by to reconnect and revisit, we also had families and youth who had never been to Pendalouan before, who came to get a good feel of this wonderful place before registering for a Summer camp session.

Unable to make it last Sunday? Don’t worry, if you give the office a call at (231) 894-4538, you can set up a time to stop by Camp Pendalouan and get a tour and check us out!

But now its time to meet some more of our wonderful Summer 2011 staff. Last week, we introduced four out-of-state staff members, hailing from Minnesota to New Mexico to West Virginia. This week, we’ll be highlighting some of our Michigan born and raised staff! So without further ado, here’s Mishael and Julie!

Good day readers! I'm Mishael. This will be my first summer as a staff member but my 9th year going to summer camp. I'm so excited to work at camp. After this summer, I will be going into my senior year at Dexter High School. I love building stuff in my spare time and my passion is fixing anything that I can find thats broken. I've wanted to work at camp for as long as I've been going and I can't wait to see everyone there!

Hi everyone! My name is Julie and I am 21 years old. I love eating peanut butter cup ice cream, running, and water skiing. Right now I am studying at Grand Valley State University. I can’t wait for school to be over and summer to begin so I can get back to Camp Pendalouan! This will be my second summer on staff and I am so excited for summer 2011! I look forward to playing capture the flag, singing to Mr. Zip Zip, and swimming in Big Blue. I can’t wait to see you all this summer!

Julie and Mishael are just itching for summer to come and so are we. We hope you join Julie, Mishael, and the rest of us for a session (or two) of Summer 2011!
