Meet your camp leaders:
Camp will be led once again by Mathea. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin River Falls in December 2018 with a major in Elementary Education. She has a passion for working with kids and inspiring them to do their best and help them grow not only as students, but as individuals.
In addition to leading the MegaStars Camp last summer, Mathea has many years of working with kids and summer camp. She worked as program leader for the City of Lakeville Park and Rec for 3 summers, where she helped lead diversified recreational programs including sports, games, natures, crafts, and special events for children ages 3-12 years of age. She also worked as a day camp counselor for ages 4-12 at Camp St. Croix in Hudson, WI. She taught kids new skills, building self-worth, and learning the YMCA’s 4 core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.
In addition to her camp experience, Mathea has classroom experience with elementary age children through her coursework at UW River Falls and substitute teaching this past spring.
She has taught dance classes for over five years with kids ranging in age from 3-13 and all levels and abilities. She loves teaching children and watching the excitement in their eyes when they learn something new. She has also worked as a paraprofessional in a summer school program for students from first to fifth grade. Through UW River Falls, she has been in classrooms of various ages and abilities helping students in any way she could.
