Meet Four New Pendalouan Counselors!

Last week, we finished introducing the Summer 2013 Support Staff! Today, we'll meet the first four summer 2013 counselors! Every week, we’ll be introducing more and more Summer 2013 staff, so stay tuned! To see the bios of staff we already introduced, CLICK HERE!

We thought we’d start off our counselor bios with three new Pendalouan Summer Staff members. Some of them came to Pendalouan as campers, others will be joining the Camp family this year! Please join me in welcoming Karlene, Eric, Laura, and Liz!

Hello! My name is Karleen. I am a junior at Central Michigan University studying special and physical education. I am a part of the women’s water polo team as the coach and a player. Also, I am a part of Best Buddies at CMU; my buddy’s name is Suzie. She and I like to go to Big Boy on free pie Thursday! I love Adventure Time and Glee (I secretly want to be on Glee). When I first heard of Pendalouan, I fell in love. The grounds are beautiful and heard wonderful things about the campers and staff. I am so blessed and honored to work there this summer and to call myself a staff member. This summer, I am most excited to sing around the campfire and spend long days out on the water! See you soon!

Hi, my name is Eric. I'm from a small town near Camp Pendalouan. As a child I spent nine summers out at Pendy as a camper! Now things have come full circle as I have become a counselor. I'm excited to help create a fun environment for campers and help get them interested in new things! I am hoping that I will be able to teach kids about nature and camp. As an avid fisherman I hope to teach kids about the lake. I look forward to meeting all of you this summer!

Hi! My name is Laura and I am from Spring Lake, MI. I am attending Central Michigan University and I am going into elementary education. I love swimming, hiking, volunteering, and traveling. This is my first summer at Camp Pendalouan and I am so excited about it! I am most excited to meet all the campers and staff and have a great summer!

Hello! I'm Liz. I'm from a little town called Fruitport, Michigan (not too far from camp). I was a camper at Pendalouan for nine years, and it will be so fantastic to spend my tenth summer at camp with all of you! I like to read books, knit, and play four-square, and I most definitely cannot wait for the warm summer days and the yummy foil dinners! See y'all soon!

We hope you enjoyed getting to know the first four of our 2013 summer camp counseling staff! We’ll be introducing more staff as we get closer to summer... so stay tuned!
