Avery Janenda

Hey! My name is Avery, I am 19 years old, and I’m from West Palm Beach, Florida. I just finished my first year at Rice University studying Mechanical Engineering. Fun fact about me: I’ve been a dancer my whole life! My favorite style is contemporary.
This will be my 7th year at camp and my 2nd year as a counselor. My favorite activity at camp has always been whitewater kayaking, and I’m so excited to lead it again this year! I’m also looking forward to taking on a new responsibility: helping the adventure staff with weekly rafting trips! Camp has been my happy place for so many years now, and I can’t wait for both new and old campers to experience it this summer.
