4th of July on Big Blue Lake! Plus 3 More Staff!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend 4th of July at Camp Pendalouan? Traditionally, the 4th of July lands right in the middle of our Family Camp. But this year, due to the calendar, we will be celebrating 4th of July in the middle of Session Three of our Summer Camp!

What does this mean for Session Three Campers? It means that in addition to all the fun camp activities that experience during their time at Pendalouan, they will also enjoy our 4th of July celebrations! We will have a barbeque cook out, a party in the sandlot, and end the evening with Fireworks! Uncle Sam may even stop by for some games!

Session Three is a day shorter than all of our other sessions. It runs from Tuesday, July 3rd to Friday, July 6th and is $100 cheaper than our other full-length sessions. This is great for both the inexperienced and seasoned camper!

Are you ready for more Summer 2012 Staff bios? Let's meet Fenton, Ruth and Kathleen!

Hello from Saginaw Valley State University! My name is Fenton, but you can call me Simba. This will be my second year working at the wonderful paradise known as Camp Pendalouan. When I'm not at camp, I actually work in a library - that's right I'm a librarian - not the boring type either! My favorite hobbies include playing soccer, eating and, of course, reading. I can't wait to see you guys! I'm literally counting down the days till we're singing to Mr. Zip Zip or playing an intense game of Capture the Flag. My favorite camp dish from the wonderful kitchen staff is hashbrown stars. They really know how to make a guy smile! :) I bid you farewell, until we meet again... maybe over a game of Ninja!

Hey everyone! My name is Ruth (next to my buddy Buzz), and this will be my first summer at Camp Pendalouan. I can't wait to get started! I'm currently a Junior at Central Michigan University, majoring in Therapeutic Recreation and minoring in English. I have an ever growing list of hobbies, including running, reading, and crafts. I absolutely love Michigan summers, and am looking forward to spending this one with all of you!

Hi Everybody! My name is Kathleen and I am so excited to be returning to Camp Pendalouan this summer! This will be my 12th summer, and 2nd year as a counselor. I am really looking forward to getting back to camp for some fun Cabin Activity Times, such as the watermat and ice cream making, and also the foil dinners and campfires! There's nothing like spending an entire day outdoors with friends and activities! Hope to see you all soon on Big Blue! 

Fenton, Ruth and Kathleen are already getting ready for Summer! Less than 3 weeks until their Staff Training! Parents, make sure your child is able to experience all the fun and character-building that these counselors and all the other staff will provide. Sign up for Summer Camp today; before more sessions fill! Call us if you have any questions at (231) 894-4538.
