Changes in the Camp Wyandot Office

(427x640) (2)I am sad to say goodbye to Chanika Svetvilas as the Office/Program Manager in the Columbus Camp Wyandot office.  She is leaving at the end of July to move back east to be closer to family.  She has been a great addition to the office since starting in April 2013 and has really streamlined operations at the office and I am grateful for her time and dedication.  I want to wish her luck on her move and as she pursues new opportunities.



Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetI would like to welcome Erika Senk as the new Office/Program Coordinator.  She started in mid-July and I am very happy to have her as the newest Camp Wyandot employee.  A graduate of OSU with a background in Spanish Linguists and experience coordinating programs for OSU through the Collaborative Articulation and Assessment Project and OSU’s Foreign Language Publications office, I’m confident in her abilities to be a productive and vibrant employee of Camp Wyandot, Inc.

In Memoriam of Jim Cloud and Thoughts to Stu Tudor

James Leo “Jim” Cloud, age 83, of Powell, died on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at Kobacker House in Columbus.  He was the husband of Gwen Cloud who served at the Camp Fire secretary and the Day Camp Director for many years.  Jim was also responsible for helping to convert the tebins to cabins at the Lithopolis Day Camp site.

Columbus Fire lieutenant Stu Tudor was struck by lightening at a Crew game at the end of June.   He is still in the hospital recovering and donations are being accepted for his continued care.   He was a counselor at Camp Wyandot named “Crusher” and his kids spent many summer at camp.  We are all wishing him a speedy recovery.
