Today marks 37 days until we welcome our first session campers! We’re starting to count down the days. Have you been seeing our countdown to summer posts? Make sure you’re following us on Facebook (CC4Gfans) and Instagram (Clearwater_camp). There will be more coming your way as we get closer to June 21st! In the meantime, over the course of the next few weeks we’ll be announcing our 2017 Summer Staff. We want you to get to know our counselors, both new and returning. They are talented and energetic and we are thrilled to have them part of the team.

Hey, my name is Gabi! I’m super thrilled to be a first time staff member at Clearwater! I grew up in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, a town 20 minutes away from Mad-town (Madison). I am currently an English major at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and I will be a Junior this coming fall. I am an active volleyball player and can’t wait to teach some campers how to play! I also love writing and all art in general, so I’m hoping I can introduce the campers on some fun techniques! Overall, I’m super pumped to spend my summer surrounded by a great community!

Hey guys! I’m Maddie and I cannot wait to spend my tenth summer at Clearwater! My hometown is Champaign, Illinois but I go to school at Miami University in Ohio. I’m double-majoring in Economics and Film, and a member of Pi Beta Phi sorority. My friends would probably describe me as adventurous, easygoing, and optimistic, and in my free time I love to do anything outdoors, listen to music, or hang out with people… So pretty much how we’ll be spending our summer at camp :). I am so excited to meet all my campers and accomplish something new together!
