Fun in the Sun is staffed by experienced teachers and counselors. The counselors have themselves attended Fun in the Sun. This makes them especially qualified in that they are well known by the teachers and they have the advantage of truly knowing the program and its expectations.

Hello! My name is Michael. I am an 18 year old high school senior at The Academy at Palumbo and I will be starting my freshman year at Drexel University in the fall. My favorite pass times include chess, math, and music. I also like to read and I prefer paper pages to computers. I have attended Fun In The Sun since I was five. This will be my fifth summer as a counselor. Fun In The Sun is a, well, fun summer experience (hence the title). For this reason, I anticipate this will be another good summer.

Hello my name is Madeline Vlam, I am 15 and I am a freshman at Friends Select School. Well, I suppose by the time it's camp time I'll be entering sophomore year. This is going to be my second (well, hypothetically fourth week, but I digress) year working here. I didn't know I was getting this job last year until I got home from my own camp, learning I was signed up without knowing. The fact I was signed up for this is the best thing I'd do that year. I made friends and got to learn more and more about the kids I worked with. I'm very excited to be working here again, and hope I do a good job.

My name is Justin Watson and I recently completed my freshman year as a chemical engineering major at Penn State University main campus. I was previously a counselor at camp Fun in the Sun for the last 3 years of high school as well as a JC prior to that. I've always enjoyed the time I spent with the campers in my group and making sure that they have the best experience at FITS. Prior to beginning my position as a counselor at FITS this summer, I will gain experience in the field of chemistry with a local pharmaceutical company to further my interest in chemical engineering. In my free time, I enjoy playing basketball, hanging out with my friends and traveling to learn about other cultures and take advantage of speaking French whenever I can.
