Asset Builder of the Month

Submitted by Simone Belz, assistant director, Summit Day Camps

As an extremely dedicated and passionate counselor for Summit Day Camps, Jerilyn Sadler was selected for the Asset Builder of the Month for July. In addition to being a great mother, Sadler has five years of experience working with children. With a degree in natural science, she also has fulfilled certification in elementary education. Her personal goal as a teacher is to implement a caring, motivating and fun learning atmosphere.

Sadler works magic with kids. She constantly cultivates their imagination with books, dress-ups and stuffed animals. One day, she arrived to camp with five gigantic cardboard boxes for the kids to create structures with paint and tape. Another morning, she unloaded tennis equipment, including a ball caddy full of balls to spend the day teaching the kids a sport she loves. Each day when Jerilyn shows up at camp, staff is not sure what to expect, but everyone knows it will be good! These examples demonstrate this individual’s dedication to building positive assets in the lives of day camp kids. In addition to her part-time position as a counselor, Jerilyn donates voluntary hours to continue planning and developing constructive and enriching projects for kids. Ensuring her programs include positive, dynamic, and constructive elements, Jerilyn plants a seed of knowledge, which encourages kids to explore, share and respect the world around them.
