Courtney will be a cabin counselor with us this summer. Here is what Courtney has to say about herself...
I am a senior at Arcadia High School where I am a member of National Honors Society and the captain of the girls lacrosse team. I have taken 5 years of American Sign Language, making me fluent in the language. I also volunteer for my town as a girls lacrosse coach and an ASL teacher for elementary level children. After I graduate, I plan to further my education in college as I strive for my Bachelors degree in nursing. Along with my family, I have a love for the outdoors which includes camping, hunting, fishing, and playing lacrosse/tennis. I am very excited to work at camp Sacandaga this summer!
Chef Thom comes to us with a world full of experiences...everywhere from Massachusetts to the Philippines. He is a self described American Chef of 10 years, and has worked/lived as Executive Chef, Owner and Culinary Instructor/Consultant Worldwide. He is a graduate of the New School for Social Research, New York, and BA in Management & History,
and holds a Certification from The Culinary Institute of America (CIA), California.
Chef Thom says..." I am a hands on, hard working chef. I believe food should be handled from scratch as well as by machine. Therefore I have learned and taught to make food from scratch and then taught to learn using machines. I believe in using all aspects of the protein, as well as vegetables, dairy, dairy products, etc."
We are very excited to welcome both of these wonderful people to our camp family!
