Jennie connects best to God through singing and being outside. Ever since she was six years old, she has been coming to Camp Wyoming, first with her dad, and then later on her own as a camper. “It was always one of my favorite weeks of the summer because I love the songs and the small community.” This year will be her fourth summer on staff, and we are very excited that she is returning! “I’ve always liked the programs and games and activities that we do, ” Jennie said. “I am excited to be back as a counselor this year and working with the kids, whom I love. I can’t imagine a summer without Camp Wyoming.” We know she’s going to be an excellent leader for both campers and staff alike.
Jennie is from in Moline, Illinois and attends the University of Wisconsin-Platteville for International Studies. One day, she’d like to run a non-profit. In her free time, Jennie likes spending time with family and friends, ice skating, and singing. She is also a huge hockey fan and likes to travel. She has been to both Paris and London.
