2018 Inductee: Karin Olson
It is with great pleasure that we announce Karin Olson from Calumet is the 2018 Inductee to the Camp Administrator Hall of Fame.
Bonnie Burroughs nominated Karin and shared this in her nomination:
Karin is not only an amazing camp administrator - she is an amazing person. During the school year she is a Special Needs teacher - she is also a certified foster parent. During the summer she shares the duties of administrator - her focus is on the campers. Each camper must write a "Letter to the Counselor" - Karin reads every one of them...she also looks over every health form submitted. She keeps meticulous notes each summer about campers and shares those notes with counselors the following summer. She has a very calming demeanor, which many first-time campers find comforting. Her office is filled with kid friendly games, puzzles and toys - things to help kids if they are homesick.
Karin is all about the kids and making sure their camp experience is awesome.
It's an absolute pleasure to work with Karin!!
Over 15,000 votes were cast for the 26 nominees during the 17-day voting period. As in the previous three years, it was a stellar group of nominees! You can read about all the camp admins who were honoured by a nomination here. A big thank you to everyone who showed their support and voted (often daily) for the nominees. It is rewarding to see the community come together to support the efforts of our camp administrators.
Until next year!
