Meet S'more Camp Counselors!

Happy May!  In exactly 1 month and 2 weeks summer 2015 will begin.  To help pass the time we’ll be introducing different counselors each week, they are SO excited to share summer 2015 with all of you! 

Meet Ellie, Katie, Brandon, Maggie and Sarah!

HEY EVERYONE! My name is Ellie and this summer will be my 2nd on staff and my 8th on Big Blue Lake. I'm from right outside Chicago, but come fall I'll be headed to the University of Kentucky. When I'm not at camp, I love to keep busy with school, cooking, hiking, and scooping ice cream at my other job. I've had camp's starting date circled in my planner for months now and I could NOT be more excited to be coming back. I can't wait to sing all my favorite songs (zulu king forever!), play some CTF, cook over roaring fires, and best of all meet friends, both new and old. I know that this summer is going to be fantastic and I'm thrilled to be able to share it with all of you!

Hey there! My name is Katie and I am a student at Grand Valley State University studying Clinical Exercise Science. I am from Northville, MI and I am so pumped to spend my first summer at Camp Pendalouan! I've been a camp counselor at several different camps since I was about 13 years old, so I'm definitely in love the camp atmosphere. When I am not in school you can usually find me running, slacklining, camping with my family, sleeping in a hammock, listening to music, or eating ice cream! I am hungry for adventure and can't wait for all the great memories we are going to make at camp together this summer!

Hello everyone!  My name is Brandon and I am so excited to be a counselor again this summer. This will be my 10th year at camp and I’m just so excited to meet new people and see familiar faces.  I Love to fish and play scatterball. My Favorite camp game is Capture the Flag and my favorite activity to teach is Survival. Can’t wait to see everyone at camp!

Hi my name is Maggie! I’m from Western Springs Illinois and go to Lyons Township High School. My favorite color is pink, I love anything with chocolate and I’m obsessed with elephants. I have always been a lover of the arts and cant wait to help with the drama class this summer! I’m so very excited to be working at Camp Pendalouan and cant wait to go canoeing, try new crafts and sit around the campfire all while putting god first others second and myself third.

Hey everyone! My name is Sarah and I am a student at Grand Valley State University. I really enjoy photography and spending time with friends and family.  While I spend most of the year in Allendale, Hesperia Michigan is my home. Growing up I spent many Girl Scout and band camps here at Camp Pendalouan, but this is my first year as a camp counselor. I am super excited to spend my summer on the shores of Big Blue Lake getting to know all the amazing campers and counselors while having the best summer ever.

Keep an eye out for the reveal of more counselors next week!
