06.03.2016 By Ellen King


Name: Chloe Shepard
Hometown: Rhinelander, Wisconsin

Chloe is excited to join the Clearwater family this summer! She currently is studying Music Education at St. Norbert College, and is one year away from becoming a certified teacher.

Chamber choir, Kappa Beta Gamma, and the Panhellenic Council are just a few of the activities she is involved in on campus. When she’s not busy on campus, you can find her playing piano or guitar, or singing along to the radio at the top of her lungs. Chloe can’t wait to learn all of Clearwater’s camp songs this summer and teach campers some tunes on the piano!

Christy Nicholls

Name: Christy Nicholls
Hometown: Dunedin, New Zealand

This summer Christy will be joining us in Wisconsin from New Zealand! Christy recently graduated from the University of Otago, where she studied Theater, History, and New Zealand studies. This summer Christy is looking forward to meeting the staff and campers at Clearwater, and gaining new experiences while learning new skills. Her friends describe her as energetic, smiley, and fun. She’s hoping to pass on those traits to her campers!

Christy’s favorite movie is the Lion King mainly because Timom and Pumba are awesome, but also because of the great songs. During her free time, she enjoys catching up with friends, playing with her dog, and watching cartoons.

Sarah B.

Name: Sarah Buzak
Hometown: Edinburgh, Scotland

Sarah, also known as Saz, will be joining us this summer from Scotland! She just finished her third year as a law school student at the University of Edinburgh where she is a member of the weightlifting club and StreetLaw, which teaches law subjects to high school students.

This summer Sarah is looking forward to making it the best summer for all of the campers. She can’t wait to encourage the campers to be themselves and to pursue their own happiness, because she believes that everyone is unique and the summer is a great time to help them flourish. Sarah identifies with Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series because she has so much determination and perseverance and taught her to be strong and believe in herself!

Liza Z.

Name: Liza Ziegler
Camper: 6 years, Leadership in 2014

Liza loves spending her free time in the outdoors, with friends, and watching good movies. Her favorite camp tradition is Sunday Service, and is looking forward to helping her campers put together a thoughtful, meaningful service. This summer she is hoping to be able to finally learn the last two verses of “the patter song.”
