Meet the Summer 2014 Staff: Part 3
Another week closer to Summer Camp, which means... more staff bios! This week we are introducing Katie, Mara, Antwan and Margaret. All four of these Summer 2014 staff members at some point in the past few years have gone through our Counselor-In-Training (CIT) program, which introduces 16 year olds to what life is like as a Pendalouan summer camp counselor and teaches basic counseling skills.
Read on to meet these four great Summer 2014 counselors!
Hi friends! My name is Katie. Can you believe it’s almost Summer 2014!? It seems far away now, but before we know it, we’ll be meeting on the deck of the lodge to kick off the most amazing summer EVER! I’m currently studying marketing communications at Columbia College in Chicago, but as much as I love the Windy City, I’m itching to take some Sleepy Hollow hikes & look out at beautiful big blue lake! This will be my 10th summer at Pendy, and I have a hunch it will be the best one yet. I look forward to seeing all of you soon! Until then, continue to keep that Pendalouan spirit alive!
Hey there! I’m Mara, and I’m from Oak Park, IL (right next to Chicago). This will be my 7th summer at Camp Pendy, but my first year on staff! I’m a junior at Oak Park and River Forest High School. I love hiking (I have two dogs who love to hike with me), reading, playing piano, and laughing! I can’t wait to get back on the shores of Big Blue Lake for a summer full of awesome activities like canoeing, trips down to the spooky Sleepy Hollow, and hangin’ with the horses! I’m excited to meet everyone at camp this year. See you soon!
Hello! My name is Antwan and I'm from Muskegon, Michigan. I'm looking forward to my first year on staff and giving campers the same great experiences I was given. My favorite activities at camp are Scatterball and Four Square. I love camp tacos and my favorite camp snack is brownies! I also like the color purple, panda bears, and The Flash. This summer is going to be EPIC! I can't wait for campfires at Pendalouan... my second home!
Hi everyone! My name is Margaret and this will be my third summer working at Pendy! I am so excited to be able to spend another summer on the shores of Big Blue! Right now I am finishing my sophomore year at the College of Wooster in Ohio, where I am majoring in Spanish. I am excited for the snow to melt and for summer to start! See you soon!!!
