Spring is in Full Swing... And Two More Staff!

Even though it was snowing just the other day, Spring now seems to be in full swing!

Some signs of Spring around Camp Pendalouan:
  • The "Color of Camp" is starting to turn from brown to green with all the new vegetation and leaves!
  • Our Spring Outdoor Education season is jam-packed with school groups (about 20 kids who are here for OE this week went for a Polar Bear Swim this morning, brrr!)!
  • We are helping wake up camp from the Winter in our Spring Volunteer Work Day this Sunday (it's not too late to RSVP, by the way)!
  • We are getting ready for Summer Camp by starting to train staff, planning All Camp Games and Themed Events, buying supplies (archery equipment) and making sure every toilet, shower and faucet works!

Let's meet some more of our Summer 2012 Staff! Here are the bios of our 2012 Wellness Director and Equestrian (Horse) Director!

Hey Everyone! My name is Marissa, and just like last summer I will be the Wellness Director. You'll see me roaming around camp giving out band-aids and smiles. I am so excited to be back for my fourth summer at camp. It's crazy, because when I started as a counselor in 2009, I only planned on working one summer! During the year, I go to Xavier University in Cincinnati and study non-profit management. Even though I love school, I am so ready to put down the books and make new friends and memories this summer. I can't wait to sit and talk around campfires, look at the stars, swim in big blue, paddle board, and see everyone's smiling faces. See you this Summer!

I'M BACK!!!! Yes, another great summer at Camp Pendalouan!!! For those who don't know me, I'm Robyn! This is my 16th year at this memory-making place. I'm so excited to be the Equestrian Director this summer! I have some great new ideas for camp to be more involved with horses and the barn! I love camp so much - gaga, the waterfront, meals, CTF (Capture The Flag), the rustic feel, the traditions and the feeling of being me!!! Come join me and the rest of the staff for an amazing week or weeks at camp! Hope to see you soon!!
