Meet the Staff - Abigail
Meet the Staff 2014!
Camp Talooli has one of the greatest summer staffs around. With nearly 80% of our staff returning each year, our staff members are incredibly skilled, innovative, and enthusiastic about sharing their love of summer camp with Talooli campers. This is a way for us to share just how special each of our counselors, program staff, and leaders are.
Position at Camp this summer:
How many years have you been coming to Camp Talooli?
9 years! Abigail previously attended Camp as a camper and CIT - this will be her first summer on staff!
What is the funniest thing a camper has ever said to you?
I told a camper that her socks kept going missing because of the sock elves that lived at the cabin site. She and her cabin mates proceeded to come up to me for the rest of the week, asking what magical creatures might steal a variety of lost objects, from toothpaste to dog tags.
What is your favorite theme week?
Peter Pan week, because I've always loved hearing stories about pirates and fairies, and Peter Pan was one of my favorite fairytales growing up.
What career are you planning on pursuing?
I want to pursue biomedical engineering with a focus on prosthetics. I would also like to make a side career out of my writing hobby.
What are the most important skills you have learned from spending your summers at Camp Talooli?
Patience is definitely something I've learned, as well as the ability to pull a game or story out of thin air in any given situation.
