Introducing the Assistant Directors

Wow! Can you believe that Camp PALS 2011 is only 4 weeks away?

As the best week of the summer quickly approaches, I just wanted to introduce myself to the Camp PALS community. My name is Tyler Coulton and this will be my 3rd year at camp. This summer, I will be an assistant director along with Paul Fleming. The directors created this position to ensure that everything runs smoothly as camp expands to include 117 campers and 160 counselors and staff.

But what exactly will we be doing? During camp, we’ll be helping out with anything and everything, from leading meetings to creating an awesome playlist for the dance (with Paul’s DJ skills, we’ve got this one covered!). Basically, we’re here to serve as a liaison between the directors and the campers, counselors, and staff.

Additionally, we’ll continue to work with the directors after camp to envision the future of PALS, exploring ways to improve the experience and bring camp to more people. Already from my perspective, it has been amazing to see the year-round dedication of the Board and Directors, who are constantly planning ways to make each summer the best yet.

I look forward to seeing and meeting everyone in less than 4 weeks! (And as Paul would say, Cheers, mate!“)
