Meet the Staff 2018 - Betty
Meet the Staff 2018!
Camp Talooli has one of the greatest summer staffs around. With about 80% of our staff returning this year, our staff members are incredibly skilled, innovative, and enthusiastic about sharing their love of summer camp with Talooli campers.
Position at Camp this summer:
How many years have you been coming to Camp Talooli?
14 years! Betty was a Talooli camper and CIT before becoming a counselor. This will be her first summer working as one of our Head Counselors.
Tell us about your job this summer.
I was hired for the Head Counselor role this year at Camp Talooli. I am so excited to have this role in mentoring all the staff and helping them with any challenges that they might be facing. What is really exciting about this is having the leadership role and helping the younger staff develop into being better counselors. The challenging part, I'm sure, will be making sure to check in with all counselors at some point early in each week.
What is your favorite Disney movie?
Tangled!! I used to have hair as long as Rapunzel and I used to always think I was her!
What type of career are you currently pursuing?
I am currently studying to become an Athletic Trainer. In the fall, Betty will be a sophomore at Daemon College.
What are you most looking forward to about this summer?
Just another summer back at Camp. I love giving kids opportunities to make memories that will last them a lifetime.
What is your favorite part about working on staff at Camp Talooli?
I love working with kids. I love seeing them try new things and achieve goals that they never knew they could reach. It is wonderful to go to the challenge course with them and see them fail at an obstacle, learn from their mistakes, try it again and then succeed. I believe for many children they learn from their failures and that, to me, is very rewarding.
