What is your name?  Hi, I’m David Menard.

Were are you from? I’m from Narberth, Pennsylvania, a small suburb just outside of Philadelphia

 

What activities will you be involved in while at camp? And what about these activities most excites you?

I hope to be involved in the Ultimate Frisbee program as well as the Swimming program, which are two of my favorite things to do. Ultimate Frisbee is a great non-contact sport that encourages sportsmanship through the use of self-calls, and is a great way to keep in shape. Swimming allows you to just hang out by the water, or to explore the great unknown that lies underneath.

What three words best describe you? Patient, Kind, and Fun-Loving

If you could be any kind of food, what kind would you be and why?

If I could be any food, I would probably want to be a peanut butter and nutella sandwich, because it’s the perfect combination of sweet and salty, and if you want to mix things up a bit you can use chunky peanut butter!

If you could be any super hero, who would you be and what would your super powers be?

Oh gosh, this is a hard one. I’ve though about this a lot, and I’d want to be either “The Flash” and run super fast, or be Nightcrawler from X-Men and teleport all around the world and explore all the places that haven’t yet been explored!

What about coming to Forest Lake are you most looking forward to? I look forward to meeting all the campers and enjoying the outdoors!

I will be leading soccer, and helping out with tennis and dance. I’m most looking forward to watching the children enjoy playing sport, really getting into it the game, working as a team and most of all having fun! 

If you could be any kind of food, what kind would you be and why? ICE CREAM for sure! As you always have to have more than one scoop!

Creating life long friendships, making a difference, helping children develop their team work and leadership skills and making this summer at FLC the best summer ever!

What activities will you be involved in while at camp? And what about these activities most excites you?

This summer I’ll be co-heading the drama program! Acting is my passion, so I’m incredibly excited to work with the campers on theatrical productions. I can’t wait to witness them discover some of the things I love most about drama.

What three words best describe you? Personable, fun-loving, and motivated.

If I could be any kind of food, what would you be and why? I would be a delicious bowl of cookies and cream ice cream because I’d be nice and cool on a hot summer day!

If I could be a super hero, I would call myself Positive Paige, and I would use giant smiles to lift everyone’s spirits.

I’m most looking forward to making new friends, both with the campers and the other staff members. I can’t wait to have the summer of my life!
