Some fun ideas for things to do with kids on rainy days!

"Bubbles" is a Student Support coordinator, and is a sophomore studying elementary education. Her name comes from her "bubbly" personality and her contagious laugh :)

"Gizmo" is one of our Student Support coordinators. He is a senior studying Psychology, and is currently applying to medical school. His name comes from an old pet's name...and maybe the Gremlin's too?!

"Lil Red" is the Public Relations Coordinator, and organizes the Make the Magic fundraiser. She is a senior majoring in Strategic Communications and Media Production, and will be heading into a job as a healthcare consultant in the fall. Take a look at her hair color, and you'll know why she's called Lil Red!

"Button" is one of our Camper Care coordinators, and is currently spending a semester abroad in Peru. She is a junior studying social welfare and criminal justice.

"Tree" is a Camper Care coordinator this year, and is a junior deciding on a major between Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Psychology. Her name comes from being so tall, and all of the campers that like to give her hugs! (If campers or counselors say names other than camp names, they have to hug a "tree!")

"Ribbon" is one of our Camper Care coordinators. She is a sophomore, and is still deciding on a major.

"Sweets" is one of our Fundraising coordinators. She is a senior majoring in child development, hoping to one day become a pediatric nurse! Her name comes from her love of sweet treats and her sweet personality! :)

"Neon" is a Fundraising coordinator this year. She is a junior majoring in Nursing with a certificate in Global Health.

"Sunny" is our Teen Camp Coordinator. She is a senior in the Nursing School, and will be working for UW Hospital this coming year in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit! Her name comes from her homestate of Arizona! (but fun fact: Sunny was born in Italy!)

We already get to do some of these fun things at camp! woo!

This is how we feel everyday at camp :)

Colorful caterpillar cupcakes - these look cute and delicious!

"Daisy" is one of our Admin and Camp Programming coordinators. She is a sophomore studying Biology and Global Health. Her name comes from her job back at home as a florist - daisies are her favorite flowers!

"Cricket" is one of our Admin and Camp Programming Coordinators. She is a junior who was recently admitted to the UW Pharmacy School!

"Sunshine" is one of CKUW's Co Chairs. She is a senior majoring in elementary education, specifically mathematics. Her name comes from her love of sunshine and being outside!

"Peanut" is one of CKUW's Co Chairs. She is a senior majoring in Sociology, and is pre-Physician's assistant. Her camp name comes from her love of Peanut M&Ms;!
