Need Support? Part 2

Camp wouldn't be the same without this particular group of staff members.  You can find them up at the barn, in tent village and around Nikana Lodge.  Make sure to greet them with a smile, especially the person running around with a camera...
Meet Katie, Audrey, José and Christina!

Hey 2016 Pendalouan campers!
I'm so excited to announce that I will be returning as the Summer Director at Pendalouan for my fourth year. We have so many amazing things in store for you this summer and I cannot wait to greet each and every one of you as you come to spend a week (or more) of fun with us!
When I'm not at camp, you might find me taking classes at Grand Valley State University for my graduate program in School Psychology, running a race or competing in a triathlon, coaching swimming, or teaching a cycling class. I love to stay active and camp is the perfect place for swimming, biking, hiking, kayaking, and exploring! A few other fun facts about me:
1. My favorite dessert happens to be raspberry sorbet with kiwi and strawberries
2. My favorite type of animal is a snow leopard
3. I enjoy curling up with a good book whenever I get the chance!
 Can't wait to see you in a few short weeks

Hi everyone, it's Audrey! This will be my 4th summer on staff (whoa), and my 7th summer overall (whoa again). I'm the Teen Director at camp now, so I get to hang out with the CITs and the Session 4 Trailblazers, along with all the other campers of course. I'm currently finishing my second year at Miami University but I'm anxiously counting down the days until I can be back on Big Blue Lake singing songs, playing games, and hanging out with campers. I can't wait to get back to Pendy and already have a lengthy packing list. Hope to see you all there!!

Hey y'all! My name is Jose, I'm from Muskegon, and this will be my 7th summer at Camp Pendalouan! This past April, I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a major in Liberal Studies! Although I've been a camp counselor in the past, this year I will be serving the role of Media Pro, which means I will be taking all camp photos and videos and maybe designing some new Pendy gear ;) Some hobbies of mine include taking photos, watching scary movies, and dancing hip hop, so if you ever wanna dance battle, meet me in the sandlot. I also have a pet rat named Georgia, so that's pretty cool! ;) I'm excited to see you all at camp for an amazing summer! #Pendy2016

Howdy campers! My name is Christina, and that’s my “mane” man Winston in the picture with me.  You’ll be seeing a lot of this duo around this summer - we’re both coming to camp! This is my first year at Pendalouan, and my first experience being the assistant equestrian director, and this is Winston’s first time going to camp!  We’re from right here in Muskegon, where I am the local math superhero (Wonder Wilson) at Beach Elementary School in Fruitport, and Winston is my sidekick and head of his Halflinger herd at De Boerderij (my family’s farm - pronounced Deh Bore-duh-rye).  In addition to spending a lot of time with Winston, I enjoy reading, doing crafts, and gardening.  In addition to spending a lot of time eating, Winston enjoys more eating...apples, carrots, peppermints, pretty much anything edible.  I am really excited to spend all summer at camp hanging out at the barn and bringing out a little bit of the rodeo in everyone, and Winston is looking forward to searching your pockets for any hidden morsels!  We can’t wait!

The 2016 summer staff will be here THIS Sunday for a week of Staff Orientation!  Keep an eye on our Facebook & Instagram pages for all the details.

Hail Pendalouan!
