Summer is rapidly approaching! Are you ready? If not don't worry, you're not the only one!
Each year I notice that families begin registering earlier and earlier, which can feel like a lot of pressure, but if you're slower to plan worry not, so am I! And remember, everything always works out just as it needs to!
So that said, Week 1 (the week of June 22nd) is full at Scott Valley. But the good news is that Funderblast is at Homestead too! And we still have space there! So rally your kids friends and come on down to Homestead, although Scott Valley is amazing (and Funderblast's original home) you can't beat the beautiful field at Homestead Valley Community Center and the myriad of awesome hiking trails a stones throw away.
And in other great news for Homestead - Mariah Nimmons has just come on board team-Funderblast to be the Site Director! I have known Mariah since she was a tiny middle-schooler and a Counselor-In-Training with me at Camp Doodles! Mariah is amazing, inspired and just what Funderblast was calling in! Formerly known as Skittles, Mariah is excited to represent Louie the Lightning Bolt of Love at our new location. Here is a little info about her:
Mariah Nimmons was raised in Mill Valley and has been working at summer camps since meeting Veronica as a Counselor-In-Training in 2005. An alumna of Park School, MVMS, and Tamalpais High School, Mariah graduated from Pitzer College in Southern California with a degree in Organizational Studies, concentrated in leadership and management.
Previously the Director of Camp Doodles, Mariah has learned some of her greatest lessons, shared her longest laughs, and found her closest friends at summer camp. She looks forward not only to experiencing more of the same in her first year as a Funderblaster, but to helping others create these memories as well.
In her free time, Mariah loves to read and to create through visual, linguistic, and gastronomical mediums. Her greatest passion? People! She enjoys meeting them, learning about them, and loving them!
If you need anything, or have any questions don't hesitate to email me, or leave a comment!
I look forward to getting to know you and your family this summer!
