Ondessonk International Summer Staff 2017
Camp Ondessonk has a rich history of hiring International Summer Staff to serve as summer camp counselors. This year we are excited to introduce our newest members:
I am a very sporty and confident young person that can work alone as well as part of a team who loves to try new things for example I took part in sailing a tall ship from hull to holland a couple of years ago. I play football and canoe polo, as you know football is very popular but canoe polo is not and I would love to bring this to camp and show more people about the sport.

Favorite Outdoor Activity: kayaking/canoeing
Favorite Meal: pulled pork burger with bacon fries
Secret Skill: I can capsize in a kayak and roll back over without a paddle
Hi everyone! My name is Valkiria. In 2013 I volunteered in a program oriented to preserve wild animals. We lived in a campsite located in the jungle for a month. We had to learn how to ride a horse because it was the only way of transportation for an entire month. I am excited to learn as much as I can about American culture and enjoy myself while also teaching others about my culture.
