Meet the Summer 2014 Staff: Part 8

Our first week of Summer Camp is going swimmingly and despite some rain here and there, our campers are having a blast! For pictures from this week, check out our online photo album.

Editor's Update: We have received a flood of registrations in the last two weeks and our programs and session are starting to fill up. In fact, we already have waiting lists for future sessions. Click here to see which sessions are still available for overnight camp!

But we still have more staff to introduce! Here are some short bios for Jose, Zach, John, Madalynne and Seth! Enjoy!

Hey y’all! My name is Jose and this will be my 5th summer at Camp Pendalouan! I have recently finished my junior year at Grand Valley State University where I am studying Advertising and Public Relations. In my free time, I love to run, take photos, and do all things art! I am excited to spend another summer on the shores of Big Blue Lake, playing in the sand, and teaching some crafts! I can’t wait to meet all of you! It’s gonna be the best summer yet!

Greetings Everyone! I can't believe summer is already here, and I'm looking forward to getting into the Pendy routine. My name is Zach and this will be my first year on staff. I can't wait for Opening Campfires that brings the campers together and everything else that comes with a week of camp. Each year, I'm always impressed how many incredible campers and staff members I get to meet. I'm eager to make new friends and live it up this summer at the place I consider my second home!

My name is John! I go by both John and Flanagan. This will be my first year being a counselor at Pendalouan, but my eighth year at Camp in total. I am from a northern suburb of Chicago and am heading into my senior year of high school. After school, I work backstage and construct the set for my schools theatrical productions. My favorite food has to be pepperoni pizza with mint chip ice cream for dessert. I love being outside and am thrilled to be working here this summer! See you all soon!

Hey there I’m Madalynne! I’m an upperclassman at Grand Haven High School and I’m so excited that, for the first time, I get to spend my whole summer at Camp Pendalouan as a counselor. As a kid I spent most summers at various camps making friendship bracelets and playing all camp games so it’s exciting to be able to revisit camp even now. Outside of camp I love to hangout with my friends and spend good quality time with my dog. I can’t wait to meet all you wonderful campers and make some memories this summer. See you on the lake!

Hey! It's me, Seth! This picture to the left is me with a large carrot in Guatemala some time ago. I like carrots, but I have other interests too! I go to school at GVSU and am studying Secondary Education and Social Studies.... a fancy way of saying I want to be a High School teacher; but don't call me Mr. S... that's my father's name. I love camping, swimming, hiking, reading, playing guitar, learning new things, meeting new people, and eating. 2014 will be my third summer at Camp Pendalouan. At camp, I get to do all of the things I love to do, with some of the greatest human beings on earth! I not only get to call other staff members my friends, but campers as well. If you can find a place where you can work, live, and play with hundreds of friends, then you've got yourself a nice gig, so I couldn't be happier! I look forward to making many new friends this summer, reuniting with old ones, and having an awesome time with all of them!

Well, there you have it! We only have one more post of staff bios to share with you all!
