Better Know your Hird! Part 2 of an ongoing series
I would like to introduce John K. he will be a Lenape Counselor this summer. This will be his first summer as a counselor and were all very excited to have him be part of our team!
“I’m John Joseph K. or as many of my friends call me Jack. I’m from the quiet mountainous town of Ledgewood, which is in good ole New Jersey. I’m currently a freshmen at Montclair State University, majoring in History so I can be a teacher after I graduate. Many look to me as a source of clever whit and humor, while also being the buy they can vent to about the issues they are having. I can be both very fun and serious when I need to. I’n not exactly sure what to expect this summer, but all I know is that I’m gonna have a experience of a life time.”
Lenape village is for campers entering the 9th grade. Both Lenape and its sister village will have a unique program offering this summer Wood Working! Each village will be responsible for a project for the betterment of camp each session.
I’m incredibly excited to be able to work along side of John and excited about the new and unique program offerings available to Lenape and Tacoma this season!
