Meet the Rest of our Support Staff!

Last week, we introduced the first three members of the Summer 2013 staff! Today, we'll meet the rest of the 2013 Support Staff and next week, we start introducing our counselors! Let's get to know Tim, Leah, Robyn and Justine!

Greetings from Chicago! My name is Tim and I could not be more excited for another summer at Pendalouan! This will be my third summer working down at the beautiful T-dock as Waterfront Director. As a Pendalouan camper myself, let me tell you there is no better way to spend a week (or two!) of your summer than at Camp. When I'm not making sure everyone is safe and smiling at the waterfront, I love to spend time at the ropes course and beautiful Hiawatha beach. I recently graduated from Eastern Illinois University (Go Panthers!) with a degree in Elementary Education and am hoping to have a classroom teaching position for the fall. I am looking forward to helping everyone have a great summer! Get your towels ready, it's going to be a blast!

Hi! My name is Leah and I am this summer's Teen Director! I cannot wait to be at camp to work with the Counselors in Training (CITs) and Leaders in Training (LIT). I have spent the past 11 summers at Pendalouan, and this will be my fifth summer on staff! I am about to graduate from the University of Michigan with a degree in Biomedical Engineering. Next year, I am heading back to Ann Arbor to get a master's
degree in Engineering. I have been counting down the days until I am back on the shores of Big Blue Lake and I am so excited that camp is almost here! I cannot wait until I am back at Pendy singing, climbing, cooking foil dinners, living on the loose, and most importantly, hanging out with all of you!

Hey Pendy Pals!!! I'm back for year 17. My name is Robyn and I will be returning again as the Equestrian Director for Summer 2013! I cant wait until I am up at the barn teaching kids how to groom, feed, and ride our horses! Oh yeah... and how to scoop poop! Besides being at the barn, I can't wait to be at the waterfront on a hot day or adopting a cabin to eat with on cook out night (yummy foil dinners followed by a good ol' s'more)! I also love a good game of Capture The Flag and camp carnivals. Cant wait to see everyone on the steps of the lodge or around a campfire singing songs, doing skits, and making memories! Come make memories and be part of the Summer 2013 Pendalouan family. See you all soon!

Hi everyone! My name is Justine, I'm a recent GVSU grad, and I will be the Assistant Equestrian Director this year. I am looking forward to meeting all of the staff, campers, and of course our horses! I have been around horses and riding them from a young age and am excited to show our campers how wonderful working with horses can be. When not on horseback, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and spending time with friends. During the fourth grade my class went to Camp Pendalouan during the winter, and everyone had a great time. This is my first summer at Camp Pendalouan and I am so excited to experience it! See you soon!

That wraps up our Support Staff! But stay tuned... because we haven't yet introduced out 2013 Summer Camp counselors! Parents, make sure your child is able to experience all the fun and character-building that these staff will provide to hundred of kids this summer! Don't get stuck on a waiting list; sign up for Summer Camp today!
