Camp PALS Columbus 2K17….It’s Going To Be Magically LIT.

Julia Huntington (Left) - Hey guys!!! For those of you who do not know me yet I am Julia! This is my 2nd year with Camp PALS and first year Directing! Last year was such an inspiring experience for me that I could not pass up the opportunity to get involved. My dream team and I have been working diligently to create the most energetic, over the top, fantastical Camp that PALS have ever seen. The part I am looking forward to the most is the countless number of dance parties that we have in store, and since I am a dancer I am going to pump up the party all day with you all! Last year I had the privilege of serving as your Queen Elsa in our Candy Land Live version. This year please expect me to be in full costume all week as some of your other favorite queens: Tinker Bell, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and much much more to your surprise! For 2017, our mission is to bring games, movies, and TV shows to life! I am so excited to meet you all, and to be reunited with our PALS Family.

Meghan Harris (Right)  - Hi everyone! My name is Meghan Harris and this will be my first year serving as the Volunteer Director for camp PALS Columbus! I am currently a junior at the University of Toledo studying nursing. I love PALS because I feel like it’s the closest thing to heaven on Earth. Every person becomes the truest version of themselves when they are around people who love them at their core, and I feel like Camp PALS makes that dream become a reality. One thing I love about PALS is seeing people come together and work really hard in an effort to make the week the best week of everyone’s lives. If I had to choose the best part of the week, it would hands down be karaoke. I love seeing Campers pick songs that they love and seeing their friends go wild when they jump up on stage! I’m really excited for PALS Columbus this year and I hope you are too!  

Ricky Price (Middle): Hey PALS Family and Friends! I am so excited to be coming back to help co-direct PALS Columbus for a 3rd year! For those of you who don’t know me, I have been a part of PALS for a whopping 8 years, and have directed Columbus since it’s birth in 2015! The amount of joy that Campers and Counselors bring and the effect they have on me has kept me involved for 8 years. I have met some of my best and life-long friends through this organization. I am checking off each day we pass on my calendar until PALS (if you don’t believe me just email me at ricky.price@palsprograms.org and i’ll prove it!). I am most excited for Camper arrival! As the Camper Logistics Director, I get to work closely with all the families. It brings me such joy knowing that I can help facilitate these Campers in having the best week of their lives at Camp. Talking to you all on the phone is awesome. Meeting you in person on the first day of Camp is priceless! This year at Columbus. my co-Directors and I are going to be bringing your favorite board games and tv shows to life, and we are very excited for you all to arrive and experience this magical week with us! You are going to have a blast - and the Price is always right ;) 

With Much PALS Love, 

Julia (Elsa), Meghan, and Ricky
