Can you believe it? The start of summer camp staff training is just DAYS away!
We've been busy with Camp Ozanam camper enrollment gatherings and doing our last minute preparations for Summer Camp. But there are still more staff to meet... so sit down, relax and think summer as you read about our newest Camp Ozanam staff member!
This week we'd like to introduce Sara Hartshorn, from Harrison, MI! Sara is new to Camp Ozanam, but she's not new to the summer camp scene. She's enjoyed the summer camp environment for many summers as a kid.
"I'm really looking forward to helping the campers have some of the same great experiences that I had. I am excited for the opportunity to help them learn, grow and get to know God.", says Sara.
As a counselor this summer, Sara is "looking forward to meeting and getting to know all of the fellow staff members and the campers. I'm very excited and eager to learn about the camp traditions and try new things. I'm especially looking forward to waking up early, going to chapel, singing camp songs, spending time at the lake and going to campfires!"
Sara has a lot of energy and enthusiasm for life, and that spills over into her relationship with God. She tells us, "I'm really goofy and silly and I like to make people laugh," and she's looking forward to sharing the Gospel this summer through the opportunities she'll have to create fun memories with Ozanam campers.
Sara likes to sing, cook, go hiking and kayaking, and hang out at the beach.
"I'm a huge nerd - I love super heroes (Thor is my favorite!), Harry Potter, dinosaurs, and Disney movies!"
Welcome to the Camp Ozanam family Sara!
Our first session of summer 2014 campers arrive in just over 25 days!
Our summer camp program, offered at Camp Ozanam for both boys and girls ages 8 to 14, provides the benefits of a traditional summer residential camp in a safe, fun-filled atmosphere where campers are inspired by the gospel of Jesus Christ. SVdP offers a free one week summer camp program for children who present an identifiable need such as death in family, foster care, underprivileged, and/or economic hardship.
