Name: Kaitlin Close
Camper: 7 years
Staff: 5th year
Hometown: Lake Forest, IL

Hey there! My name is Kaitlin and this will be my 5th summer on Clearwater’s wonderful staff. I am excited to be the Head of Counselors and Head of Sailing this summer. Other than in a sailboat, you can find me at the ski docks pulling water skiers, wakeboarder and more. I can’t wait for faces old and new to join Clearwater’s circle this summer!










Name: Lexie Ziegler
Camper: 6 years, 2012 Leadership
Staff: 4th year
Hometown: Chicago, IL

Hi everyone! My name is Lexie and I’m looking forward to spending my 11th (eek!) summer at Clearwater. I was a camper for six years, a Leadership in 2012 and this will be my fourth year on staff (second year as Program Director). I am excited to continue my work as Program Director this year as I strive to meld Clearwater’s mission into the weekly schedules. In May, I graduated from Tulane University where I majored in International Relations and Asian Studies. There I also minored in Environmental Science and participated in many clubs and community service opportunities. Beginning in September, I will start my service with the Peace Corps in Morocco as a Youth Development Volunteer. That said, I am so excited to be spending my last few months in the States working with people and a place I love.

Hello campers and families! My name is Audra and I’m excited to experience my first sleepaway camp this summer. I will be a Junior at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and am studying Social Work. I love to stay active and do lots of activities outside including hiking, biking, and swimming. I can’t wait to decorate my cabin and plan lots of fun activities with the campers!

Hi my name is Libby, and I study early years and childhood studies at Manchester Metropolitan. This will be my first year at a camp, and can’t wait to teach swimming to  the children. I am also looking forward to learning all the camp tradition and meeting new friends.
