Director Blog Series: Camp PALS Poconos

Welcome to Camp PALS Poconos 2018!


Maggie: Hellooo PALS Family! My name is Maggie Lesmes, and I’m the Personnel Director for Camp PALS Poconos 2018. This will be my fifth summer with PALS and my fourth summer at Poconos, and I can’t wait to be back with my favorite people for another week in the Electric City! When I’m not communicating with all of our amazing Camper families and Volunteers, I’m studying Global Public Health at the University of Virginia (Go Hoos!). In my free time, I enjoy playing with my puppy, baking cakes, watching The Bachelor, and exercising. Chris and I have been working hard to plan the perfect week, and we’re so excited to experience all the PALS magic with you in July!

Chris: What’s up, guys! My name is Chris Rahill, and I’m the Logistics Director for Poconos this summer. I’m 23 years old, and I currently live in Chalfont, Pennsylvania with my family. I’ve been volunteering with PALS for six years, and this will be my fourth summer at Poconos. I enjoy playing sports, going to the beach, and listening to classic rock music. A fun fact about me is that I’ve been to 49 out of the 50 U.S. states! Maggie and I can’t wait for another great summer in Scranton!

We’re counting down the days until Camp PALS Poconos 2018!
