Connie “Luige” Coutellier – Executive Director Connie Coutellier small

My ..“Camp days are full of memories, they never can be forgot, our days at Wyandot” …so now after being on the national staff of Camp Fire USA and American Camp Association and directing camps, consulting, and training throughout the USA and internationally, it was wonderful to have the opportunity to go back where I started and help provide quality outdoor experiences that empower others to … “make lasting friendships never to be broken”. I enjoy meeting new campers and staff and look forward to the future. I hope you will join us for another great summer at Camp Wyandot. We are currently in the hiring process for all staff, including a camp director for next year.

“The Camp Wyandot Leadership Team is a talented group of people with bachelor’s degrees in a variety of subjects and most have over five years of administrative and supervisory experience in organized camp. The counselors and program staff are a minimum of 18 years of age and in addition to pre-camp training most have been through two years of the Counselor-in-Training program at Camp Wyandot. All of the staff have gone through extensive screening – many have multiple years as campers – and are the positive role models we want for our children.

I’ve been going to Camp Wyandot since 2nd grade.  I loved being a camper and learning new skills from incredible counselors.  Next I was a Counselor-in-Training where I learned to teach those skills to others.  Then I became a counselor and have served in various staff roles.  Wyandot is a beautiful place because of the campers who come each summer to have fun, make new friends, and learn many new skills.  Memories made at camp are the best ever and will last a lifetime.

Doo-Wop:
I am excited to return to camp this summer! I have been coming to Wyandot since I was 11 years old, and have had the opportunity to be a counselor and a member of the leadership team for 6 summers as I attended a college. My summers at Wyandot have inspired my passion for out-of-school learning and recreational opportunities for youth. I went on to earn a B.S. in special education and secondary education, and just graduated from the University of Illinois with my M.Ed. in curriculum and instruction. I attribute much of my learning to my years at camp though! In addition to time at Wyandot and time in classrooms, I have worked with youth at Brown University’s Pre-College Programs, Special Olympics, and the YMCA. I love helping campers discover the outdoors, try new things, make friends, and learn new skills. I cannot wait to meet them all this summer!

 


Hello! My name is Galileo and I am one of the Program Specialists this year! I have been coming to camp since 2008 and this will be my fourth year on staff. I am currently a student at Ohio University and I love hiking, playing piano, and hanging out with my pets in my spare time. I am so excited to meet all the new campers and see some familiar faces this summer!

 


Nawnee:

Camp Wyandot has been a huge part of my life since I was 11 years old. I had the honor of being a Camper, CIT, Counselor and now this will be my 6th summer serving on the Leadership Team.

My passion for camp & the outdoors lead me to earn a B.S. in Outdoor Adventure  Leadership (Southern Oregon University) and a M.S. in Recreation-Outdoor Education (Ohio University).

Throughout the years I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of organizations & age groups in many different outdoor environments! I am looking forward to working with the Staff this summer and providing the Campers with an excellent Camp Wyandot experience, See you soon!

 


Hello, my name is Tiki! I have been going to Camp Wyandot since I was 7 years old. I have a great admiration for the land and the people at camp. I am very excited to be on the Leadership Team this year as the Outdoor Living Skills Specialist!

I am currently a senior at Ohio University. I am in the Child and Family Studies Program with a concentration in Child, Adult, and Family. This is a fancy way of saying I study child development and family dynamics. I am also pursuing a Phycology minor.

I have a passion for nature, mental health, and working to help people grow. I am excited to work with the campers and the staff this year to hopefully fulfill all of these passions for the summer!
