Less Than One Week!
In less than one week, the Summer 2011 staff you’ve met all spring here on the camp blog descend upon Beautiful Big Blue Lake and begin our Staff Training. Some of our staff are already up here working with school groups, advancing towards their lifeguard certification, or getting trained in CPR/First Aid.
Pendalouan’s Staff Training is an intense experience. There is a lot to learn and much to be done during that week's span. We work hard to make sure our staff is getting the best training out there. We do, however, make sure that it is done in an enjoyable and meaningful way as well. After our week of training and orientation, excited children pour into camp and Session One begins, officially kicking off Summer 2011!
Throughout the summer, please check back and look for periodic updates about how camp is going. There will be about one or two updates per a session. We’ll try to include some pictures too! If you have something you want to see or hear about, let us know in the comment page or on our Facebook wall!
BUT, before we get too ahead of ourselves. Let’s meet the remaining Summer 2011 staff.
Hey everyone, my name is Joselito Robles. I am a junior at Central Michigan University who is currently studying Recreation. This will be my first year on staff at Camp Pendalouan. I’m excited to do ropes course and rock wall belaying. On my free time, I enjoy playing volleyball and riding my longboard. I cannot wait for summer to start because by the sound and look of it, I will have a blast.
Hey everybody! My name is Jack, and I'm very very excited to be returning to work my second year at Camp Pendalouan. I am a graduating senior at Oak Park River Forest High School in Illinois, and will be attending DePaul University in the fall. I love to explore Chicago, play basketball, and hang out with awesome kids! I'm confident that this will be an amazing summer.
You’ve met the 2011 Staff, you’ve heard about our Staff Training, and you’ve gotten updated on what the blog will be like this summer. But have you registered for a session at Pendalouan this summer yet? For information on registration or any camp inquiry, take a look at the Pendalouan website or give the office a call at (231) 894-4538.
That’s it for now!
Peace, Love, Pendalouan.
