Busy Week & Our Teen Staff!

With less than 60 days until Summer 2012 kicks off with our first campers coming for Session One, we are in high gear getting ready for Summer! Two days ago, we had our Spring Volunteer Work Day. This coming Sunday we have our first of two Pendalouan Preview Days. And then we have less than 50 days until our Staff make their way to Camp for their week of Staff Training! You'll be hearing about our Spring Volunteer Work Day and our Pendalouan Preview Days on our blog later this week, but for now, let's introduce more Summer 2012 Staff!

Today, we'll be finishing meeting our leadership team by introducing two long-time staff members, Will, our 2012 Teen Director, and Leah, who will the female Teen Counselor. Read on to hear about these two amazing staff members!

Hi! My name is Will, and I will be the Teen Director this summer. I was a counselor from 2007-2010 before taking last summer off to do research into wastewater treatment. I am graduating from Washington University in St. Louis with a degree in Chemical and Environmental Engineering, and I plan to someday become a high school chemistry teacher. While at school, I like to play my euphonium (small tuba), read with St. Louis kids, and going hiking and climbing with my friends. I am SUPER pumped to be heading back to camp this year, especially to run and hang out with the teen programs. Bring on the fun!

Hi! My name is Leah. This summer will be by 4th summer on Pendalouan staff, making this my 10th summer at camp! Until summer starts, I will be finishing up my junior year at the University of Michigan, where I am studying Biomedical Engineering. I am already counting down the days until I am back at camp having an amazing summer with all of you! I love playing on the ropes course and cooking foil dinners, especially if I am surrounded by amazing friends! I am very excited to hang out with the CITs and LITs this summer! This summer is going to be awesome!

Will and Leah provide a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to training our future counselors and leaders in the CIT & LIT programs. They also will have a very prominent role in Camp, so even if your child is not a teen, they will most likely interact with these two staff. Is your child registered yet so that can enjoy all the fun that Will, Leah and their Counselors-In-Training and Leaders-In-Training will provide this summer? Give us a call (231) 894-4538 or head to our website to register today!
