Exciting Programming and New Experiences at Camp This Summer

It’s been a great summer at camp, and we are looking forward to several more weeks of fun and new experiences! In addition to our traditional Summer Camp activities, we’ve had some incredible partnerships this year for arts & crafts, music, dance and hands-on animal education.

Welcome Back to Summer Camp, Heather & Jessica!

After serving in our Skill Building and CLS programs for the past past three years, we are thrilled that Heather and Jessica will be assisting with our Summer Camp evening programming!

“We are so excited to be back at ITC as co-assistant directors. We started during different summers but both as Kickapoo girls! We are excited to be back and a part of the camp magic!” —Heather & Jessica

Thanks Heather & Jess for being such awesome ALL-STARS!

Welcome Summer Camp Staff!

A warm welcome to our Summer Camp staff who have arrived for training week. With a mix of new and returning staff, we’re looking forward to a summer full of friendships, memories and supporting & encouraging campers!

What I Ike Ikus Means To Me

It has been such a great pleasure and joy working here at Indian Trails Camp! March marked my two year anniversary from when I first started. The decision to switch jobs was a tough one as I really did enjoy my previous job but I couldn’t be happier with the decision that I made.

It has been such an amazing couple of years! Each day I am happy to come to work, I don’t think many people get to say that and truly mean it. I have met so many amazing people, get to work with incredible staff and build friendship with coworkers and campers alike.

Each day brings new and exciting challenges, I am able to grow and learn, teach and train each day somehow being better than the last.

As we are in the hiring process for our 2016 summer camp staff I get excited sharing why I love Indian Trails Camp when the question is asked, which it often is, but I get even more excited as we hire people, knowing that they are going to have a fantastic, memorable and life-changing summer/experience. It is inevitable.

Here’s to 2016 at ITC being the best year yet! I Ike Ikus, nobody like us, we are the camp of ITC!

Blessings & Love,

Megan Lougheed

Camp Director & Respite Coordinator

Share & Win

If you have attended or worked at Indian Trails, you have felt something special here. Maybe you felt butterflies as you finally had the courage to go down the zip-line, maybe it was uncontrollable belly laughter during the talent show, or maybe it was tears of happiness as you realized not only have you made life-long friends but a family. Whatever it was, it was undeniably magical.

Please take a minute to reflect and share your magical times that you had at Camp. On 11/25/15 one name will be drawn to receive awesome Camp paraphernalia! #iikeikus
