Getting to Know Casey Ekmark

 Casey Ekmark

Where are you from: Boise, Idaho

Years at I.S.: 1

Why did you decide to work at camp this summer?

I was referred to Iroquois Springs by one of my best friends from college who was a counselor last summer. She thought I would be perfect for the job and now I’m here!


What are you looking to learn this summer from being a counselor?

I really am looking forward to learning about the kids that will I will be sharing a cabin with for 6 weeks. I can’t wait to learn about who they are and have them teach me things along the way and I hope that I can do the same for them.


How are you looking to impact your children this summer?

Just be a positive influence on their lives. I want them to be able to go home and tell their friends and their families about how awesome their camp experience was and how we as counselors were able to do that for them.


What is one big goal you have for the summer?

My one big goal is just to have a good time. I want to make friends that I will have for the rest of my life and be a great influence for the kids so that they can have just as much fun as I do.
