What Is It Like Working At Fowler?

Angel Silva
Cabin and Outpost Counselor
From Mexico

My favorite memories of this summer are the Outpost trips to the sand dunes and watching the sunset over Lake Michigan with my team and campers. Also, the campfires in the Outpost every night made my summer most beautiful! I can say that I’m a different person now. Being exposed to cultural diversity at camp and helping campers with different abilities has given me the ability to easily adapt to any situation.

Alyssa Hill
Cabin and Outpost Counselor
From Detroit, Michigan

One of my favorite camp memories was when two of the campers in my group were singing Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” My camp experience has changed me in many ways. I feel more humbled and show gratitude to those who do this for a living every day. I enhanced some of my skills and made lots of new friends that I will cherish for the rest of my life. My camp experience impacted my resilience. I learned to be more in the present, love nature more and be appreciative for so many things.

Edward Hall
Cabin Counselor
From Vassar, Michigan

My experience as a camp counselor has changed me. Before this job I didn’t have much motivation. This summer I learned how to interact with many strong personalities, and I hope I have impacted my team the same way they have impacted me. I did make more friends than I thought I would, especially my cabin team.

Terry Allen
Cabin Counselor
From Gillingham, United Kingdom

My favorite camp memory was learning to use the paddle boats and in turn teaching campers how to use them. I also enjoyed helping the campers to have a great experience. I have made new friends!  I feel that working here at The Fowler Center has impacted my confidence and improved my leadership skills.
