Hello campers! I hope you are getting ready for a fun-filled summer at YMCA Camp Pendalouan! My name is Katie and I am thrilled to be returning to the beautiful shores of Big Blue Lake as your 2013 Program Director. Some of the things I am most excited for this summer include playing capture the flag, re-connecting with old friends and meeting all of you, and laughing and singing around one of our memorable camp fires. I love the famous camp cookies, tin foil dinners, and sailing on Big Blue. This will be my 9th year at Pendalouan - and I couldn't pick a better place to be returning to this summer! Currently, I am working as a High School Physics & Biology teacher in Southern New Mexico and will be making the trek back up to Michigan for summer 2013. See you soon!

Hi there! My name is Courtney and I am thrilled to be this summer's Day Camp Director. This will be my first summer at Camp Pendalouan and I am counting down the days until it begins. I am from Ontario Canada, but have spent most of the last few years in college in West Virginia. I am currently working at Camp getting ready for summer and working with school groups in Pendalouan's Outdoor Education program. I love being outside and am so excited for Day Camp this summer! I can not wait for the campers to arrive!!

Hey everybody! My name is Elizabeth, and I'm so excited to come back to Pendalouan to be the Health Officer this summer! I've been wandering around the shores of Big Blue Lake for eleven years now, but this time, I will be armed with bandaids to spare. This year I'm graduating from the University of Notre Dame, so taking some time away from the books to spend the summer at Pendalouan is just what I need. Some of my favorite things about camp are foil dinners, archery, fun skits at chapel, and spending time out on Big Blue. I can't wait to sing to Mr. Zip Zip and sit around the campfire making memories with all of you this summer! See you soon!

We are thrilled to have Katie, Courtney and Elizabeth joining us this summer at Pendalouan in three of our leadership positions. We'll keep introducing staff here on the blog... so stay tuned to meet more amazing Pendalouan Summer 2013 Staff!
