Hi! My name is Casie McAllister and I am 19 years old. My hometown is Merrill, WI and I am currently a Freshman at UW River Falls studying Elementary Education. I have always wanted to be a camp counselor and I am so excited to be given this opportunity. This will be my first summer at Camp Agawak. I love working with kids and I’m eager to bring this passion to camp. In my free time, I like playing tennis, walking my dog, spending time with friends, playing games, and being outdoors in any way.

I like to cook and thanks to the subjects of my career I have learned to cook in a delicious and healthy way, I have also been part of the work team of an industrial company where I was a kitchen assistant and served food for more of 100 workers! There I learned many things, especially to work under pressure. One of my best experiences was working in a kindergarten with children of different ages, I learned a lot from them and most of all I had a lot of fun.Actually I am very excited to go to the camp, since I was a little girl I went to camps and it caught my attention working in one. I consider going to Agawak camp as an unique opportunity to live unforgettable experiences. I can ́t wait for it!!
