Greetings from the Northwoods! I’m Kat and I could not be more excited to be in the position of Head Counselor this summer. Clearwater has always been a huge part of my life and it is such an unexpected gift to be back at camp in this role. Last year was my first summer back at camp in just over 10 years during which I taught in Luxembourg and Mexico, got my MFA in theater, got married, spent a few years in Chicago and then moved to Minocqua, full time! Since moving to the Northwoods, I have worked at a local coffee shop, joined a cold water swimming group, had a stand selling baked goods at the farmers market, directed the high-school play, and spent tons of time hiking through camp with Jared (my husband who also happens to be the Maintenance Supervisor at camp) and Lucy (our pup). We can’t wait to see camp full of life again and to welcome you all to the Northwoods!
