Noah, Nate, DMar, Logan, Alexander, Elijah, Sam, DMan, Reese, Stephen, Ryan and Jared…the greatest JC’s in the whole wide world. These are the leaders of Skylemar 2021.
They are the tone-setters of camp. Because they’re fun and upbeat, we all feel that way. Each is adored by his cabin of little guys, and all are admired for their kindness, warmth, dedication and loyalty. These are the young men who any parent would be proud to have as their own, and who our kids hope to be like when they grow up.
Part-time cabin and activity assistant and part-time camper, you might say that the JC’s (Junior Counselors) have the best of both worlds. They have lots of responsibilities throughout the day with the kids, but also have time assigned to play sports with the Stars. For Color War, they’re some of the most valuable members of the team.
Living together on the Hilltop with counselors Miles and Marcus is part of what makes their summer so great. They’re a band of brothers, who when combined represent over 80 years of Skylemar experience.
The JC’s do whatever it takes to make campers smile. They’ll wear a crazy costume, bang drums and jump up and down when someone yells “Flamingo Bingo!”. They give the best piggy-back and shoulder rides and have a way of cheering someone up who might feel just a little bit down.
Giving up a driver’s license, cell phone, social media and video games is not something that comes so easy for a sixteen year-old. But each of these extraordinary men are strong, intelligent, confident and wise. They have a good handle on what matters and is most important in life.
We’re proud of our JC’s and are grateful that they’re here. Our hope is to build them into incredible counselors, so they continue to make a positive difference in the world, one kid at a time.
