Hi everyone! My name is Melissa and I have been a part of Camp Agawak since 2008; first as a camper and since 2014 on staff as a counselor, then admin staff and now I’m so excited to be back this summer in a new role as one of the camp nurses! I graduated last fall from UIC Nursing with my MSN and now am a Registered Nurse in Chicago. I am looking forward to being back at Camp Agawak providing a safe and fun summer for all the campers and staff. I’m definitely counting down the days until I get to be back on Blue Lake, eating Ducky’s pizza, watching campers ski, singing campfire songs, and being at my home away from home! I can’t wait for another amazing summer on Blue Lake!
Hello! My name is Stella and you will find me on the waterfront life guarding, swimming and helping teach campers how to ski. On land, you will find me teaching dance and taking campers on the fun bike trails surrounding camp. Agawak is a second home to me and I've been here since 2014. Blue Lake is where I learned to ski. I'll be attending UCLA in the fall. I'm looking forward to giving my campers a super fun summer! See you soon.
Hi I’m Addie and I am from St. Louis. This is my fourth summer at camp and my first year on staff. At camp you can always find me kickboxing, dancing in the lodge, or hanging out on the water front. I am so excited to be back at my favorite place making so many new memories this summer!
