Meet the Counselors Part 4

Meet Austin, Bianca, Bella, Joe and Rylee!

Austin.jpgHowdy, Pendy People!! It’s your friendly neighborhood splashmaster, back again for my second summer here at camp! My name is Austin, and I’m originally from Beavercreek, Ohio. Presently, though, I’m studying Architecture and Environmental Science at Miami University! This summer I have the honor of being Co-Teen Director as well as counselor! I’m so excited to be working with the teens throughout the summer, as well as getting to be my goofy self with campers! What does that entail you ask? Diggin’ ditches and filling them back in of course. That also means I’m down at the waterfront every chance I get INCLUDING…  Polar bear swim each morning. Be there! When I’m not at camp, I enjoy spending time with my dogs, grilling a nice steak, running, woodworking, and exploring nature! As much as I love all these things, none of them compare to how excited I am to be back at camp this summer! See you all soon and Hail Pendalouan!

Bianca.jpgHi! I am Bianca, I am from Coopersville Mi. I just finished my first year of college at Central Michigan University, and I am a Fashion Merchandising, and photojournalism major. This is my first year as a camp counselor, and I couldn’t be more excited. Growing up I have visited camp many times with the school group that my mom works for. Now that I am finally able to be apart camp in a new way, and I can’t wait to get started. I love meeting new people, and making new friends, so I am very excited to see what this summer has in store. I’m also excited to be able to spend my whole summer at Camp Pendalouan, because growing up it was always a place I loved.


Hello Pendy! I’m Bella and I’m beyond thrilled to be coming back to camp for my second summer as a counselor! I’m from Chicago, IL but I’ll be at Michigan State University next fall. I love to read (especially Harry Potter), dance, and dress up in crazy costumes. I can’t wait to spend all summer singing and making friends! I’ll see you all on Big Blue in a couple months!




Joe.JPGHi! My name is Joe and I am from Naperville, Illinois. I attend school at Waubonsie Valley High School where I am a part of the drumline and pit ensemble for the musical. When I am not at school I am usually working at Chipotle or hanging out with friends. I have gone to camp for the last 8 summers in a row, but this will be my first year on staff and I couldn’t be more excited! I am super excited for opening campfires because they are my favorite part of camp and also excited to meet all my campers! One thing I love about camp is you can make friendships that will last a lifetime.



Hello there! I’m Rylee and I’m from Sand Lake, Michigan! Next Fall, I will be a Junior at Central Michigan University with a Public Relations major and Outdoor and Environmental Education minor. In my free time, I like to play with my dog, sing along (as well as I can) to Disney movies and musicals, run, hike, camp, smile, bake and eat desserts, and have fun!  This will be my first summer at Camp Pendalouan and I am stoked! I am a first time counselor and have attended camp for 2 years. I’m looking forward to getting to know the campers, eating s’mores, and having an unforgettable summer at Camp Pendalouan!
