Meet Chandler, Christina, Sarah, Omer and Alexa:
Hello everyone!! My name is Chandler, and I live in Muskegon, Michigan. I go to Reeths-Puffer-Puffer right now, and I’m looking to go to Central Michigan to later become a teacher! I first came to camp on a school field trip and came back for summer camp four years ago. I was on the summer staff last summer, and this will be my second year as a camp counselor. I like to do anything outdoors, and I especially love playing soccer! What makes camp so amazing is that I get to do all of the things I love to do in such an outstanding environment!! I think thing that I’m most excited for about the summer is to see familiar faces as well as any new people coming to experience a week at one of the greatest places they will ever be. I can’t wait to kick off the summer!!!
Howdy campers! My name is Christina, and that’s my “mane” man Winston in the picture with me. If you’re in Ropers and Wranglers, you’ll be seeing a lot of this duo around this summer – we’re both coming to camp! This will be our 2nd year! We’re from 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!
My name is Sarah! I am 21 years old. I am from Newaygo, I went to newaygo high school and graduated in 2013. I attend Ferris State University for Secondary Education, with a major in social studies and a minor in math! I enjoy being outdoors, and being around kids/people! I am a first year counselor here! I look forward to what the summer brings! And the experiences along with it! I’m an outgoing person! I always look for the best in people. I enjoy being active and interacting with people. I love being outdoors! I am a sports fan and enjoy just about every activity there is! I coached an 8th grade basketball team for two years before moving away to college. (Probably one of the biggest learning experiences for me! A great one!) I love camp! I attended camp growing up and I loved the atmosphere of it! Meeting new people, being outdoors, trying new activities! It’s all around a great experience and I can’t wait to be part of it for the whole summer!
Hi! My name is Omer. I am going to be a sophomore computer science student at the University of Missouri in Columbia. I am from the St. Louis area but I’m looking forward to spending my summer in Michigan in the outdoors. In my free time I like to play soccer and spend time with my friends and family. I hope to make many friends and meet a lot of new people as a first year counselor this summer!
Hey friends! My name is Alexa, and this will be my 3rd summer at Pendy. This fall I’ll be a junior and attending Northern Michigan University for outdoor recreation. Over the past summers, Pendalouan has become my home! I can’t wait to go back and see everyone (old and new)! I love spending time hanging around at the ropes course, and you’ll always ‘sea’ me life guarding during waterfront! It’s going to be such a great summer; I can’t wait to see you there!!
