Her leadership with Outdoor Education has established a solid link with schools in the area, and she currently heads up the weekend rental programs for camp as well. Excellence is one of Lori's goals in programming at Camp Pendalouan and she makes sure things are done well. She lives at camp with her husband Dan, and two children, Kate and Kevin.

  • Dan Willson, Food Service and Housekeeping Director [javascript protected email address]

    Dan is part of Lori’s team and his background in camp programming makes him an ideal Food Service and Housekeeping director. His talents and abilities to provide a variety of kid-friendly meals prove he’s more than up to the daily challenges in the kitchen. His understanding about the importance of health and safety in an environment where most activity is outdoors, compliments the need to have a clean facility. Dan’s talents with leading groups provides a dual role where he may be seen leading a weekend group and/or the occasional campfire. His initiative and excellent standards make for a safe and clean setting for fun.

    Melody has also worked at camp for many years, and brings a wealth of experience and competence to her many, varied tasks. Not only does she help with the registrations for all programs, the mailings and the phone calls, but she is the one that trouble shoots many problems for people when they need help.
