Less than 70 Days Until Summer!

We had +80 degree temperatures in early March and we had snow falling hard this morning. What a whirlwind of weather this month has provided us!

But none of that changes the fact that we have less than 70 days until Summer 2012 begins!

We are very countdown focused right now here at Camp Pendalouan. And that's because we have a lot on the calendar for the next few months! Let me show you what I mean:

5 Days... Until Our Spring Volunteer Work Day
12 Days... Until Our First Camp Preview Day 
25 Days... Until Our Second Camp Preview Day
60 Days... Until Staff Orientation Begins
68 Days... Until Our First Campers Arrive & Session One Begins


79 Days... Until Family Camp Begins
93 Days... Until Mom & Kids Camp Begins
128 Days... Until Father-Son Camp Begins

Yahoo! We are excited for each of these numbers to get smaller and smaller as they weeks and days go by! We are super excited for Summer 2012 (we have some exciting developments to share) and we hope you are too!

But before these numbers get to ZERO, let's meet some more Summer 2012 Staff! Today, we'll introduce two more members of our Programming Staff, our Day Camp Director and Waterfront Director! (To read more Summer 2012 Staff Bios, click here)

Hello everyone! I’m Amiee and this will be my second summer here on Big Blue Lake. I spent last summer as a counselor, and this summer I will be returning as (drum roll please) the Day Camp Director! I am thrilled to be counting down the days to my graduation from Michigan State University, and to the days until I will be back on the T-dock! This summer is sure to be filled with crafts, crazy costumes, songs, campfires, and most of all, FUN! I am looking forward to meeting each one of you, hopefully the next few weeks will go by quickly!

Hello everybody! My name is Hannah  and I am the Waterfront Director for Summer 2012! Normally I live in Minnesota and study psychology and education at Macalester College in St. Paul but this semester I’m in Costa Rica for four months studying monkeys! Monkeys are pretty exciting, but nothing like hanging out on the dock at Pendalouan swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and having a great time! I love playing outside, laughing with friends, and eating s’mores with peanut butter. Can’t wait for another amazing Pendalouan summer! See you guys on the dock!

We are thrilled to have Amiee and Hannah back on the shores of Beautiful Big Blue Lake this summer! Are you registered yet so that can enjoy all the fun that Amiee, Hannah and our other staff will provide? Give us a call (231) 894-4538 or head to our website to register today!
