Island Rec is excit­ed to intro­duce Glenn Hen­drick as the newest addi­tion to the team. Glenn will be respon­si­ble for coor­di­nat­ing the pop­u­lar sum­mer pro­gram, Camp Eagle Rock. She comes with a diverse back­ground in camp pro­grams, art, farm­ing and com­mu­ni­ty organizing.

Camp Eagle Rock offers a safe, afford­able and enrich­ing recre­ation expe­ri­ence for school age chil­dren for sev­en weeks each sum­mer. Each week, 80 campers par­tic­i­pate in a vari­ety of unique and engag­ing activ­i­ties based on a theme. Camp Eagle Rock fills a crit­i­cal need for many work­ing fam­i­lies and is appre­ci­at­ed by oth­ers as a desired recre­ation­al activ­i­ty. “Glenn brings lead­er­ship and won­der­ful cre­ative ideas to our pro­gram and we are look­ing for­ward to work­ing with her this sum­mer” stat­ed Island Rec Direc­tor, Mad­die Ovenell.

Glenn’s posi­tion has tra­di­tion­al­ly been respon­si­ble for coor­di­nat­ing the STAR (Study Time and After­school Recre­ation) pro­gram, how­ev­er in the fall of 2017 the posi­tion was split into two. Court­ney Leake, the After­school Pro­gram Man­ag­er, will still be con­tin­u­ing in her role.

Glenn has lived on San Juan Island for five years, dur­ing which time she has worked in farm­ing, land­scap­ing, and com­mu­ni­ty orga­niz­ing, and has con­tin­ued to grow her art and design career. In her free time, she enjoys pot­tery, pho­tog­ra­phy, prac­tic­ing aer­i­al silks, play­ing music, lake swim­ming, gar­den­ing, hik­ing with her dog, and gen­er­al­ly spend­ing time in this beau­ti­ful region.
