With Summer 2012 less than 75 days away, we're thinking it is about time to start introducing the Summer 2012 Staff! We are super excited for Summer 2012 and we having been working hard for the past several months to make sure this is one of the best summers yet!

I hope you are as excited as I am to see familiar and new faces. We have an awesome crew this year who cannot wait for summer. So without further ado... your Summer 2012 YMCA Camp Pendalouan Staff!

A BIG PENDALOUAN HELLO FROM BIG BLUE LAKE!! My name is Mark and I am thrilled to be spending another Summer at Pendalouan as Program Director. This summer will mark my 14th year at Camp Pendalouan! I was a camper for 7 years, and this will be my 7th year as a staff member. I was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois which is right outside of Chicago. Last June, I graduated from Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, which is all the way on the other side of Lake Michigan! My favorite things about Pendalouan are Kitchen Staff Parades, boating on Big Blue Lake, hiking to Sleepy Hollow, and Capture the Flag. Thoughts of campfires, s'mores, and singing to Mr. Moon also help me get through the colder months. Summer 2012 will be like no other! Can't wait to see you on the shores of Big Blue Lake!

Hello friends of Chief Pendalouan! My name is Drake, Director of Fun! As Director of Fun, I'll be making sure that every camper has a blast at Pendalouan this summer by organizing all-camp-games, planning different themes for every week, and just being a cool dude to be around. This year I'm graduating from Michigan State University (go green!) with a degree in History. When not at Pendalouan, I like to golf (both traditional and disc varieties), play guitar, listen to music, go for a run, or stay inside with a good book. I'm looking forward to my third summer at Pendalouan! Can't wait to see you there!

We are thrilled to have these two Marks back at Camp for another Summer!
