We want to introduce you to GSNI’s Camp Directors! We will be posting these introductions to help you meet our camp staff. Meet Laura “Chai” Bumba, Camp Director at Camp McCormick!
Hi! I’m Laura “Chai” Bumba, Camp Pathway Specialist for Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois and Camp Director for the 2013 resident camp season at Camp McCormick. This will be my second summer as camp director for GSNI and I am truly looking forward to another stellar summer. If you know only one thing about me, remember this: I LOVE camp! Camp combines adventure, independence, responsibility, teambuilding, and so much more in an atmosphere of pure FUN! While I still consider myself a camper at heart, it is my greatest pleasure to have found an occupation that allows me to share this experience with others. Beyond the image of campfires and s’mores, summer camp offers the opportunity for people of all ages to disconnect from technology and reconnect with others in the great outdoors. Nothing compares to the camaraderie of making new friends or the sense of accomplishment after creating your first fire!
