The end of the summer season marked the beginning of a new season with Rogers Ozone as former Camp War Eagle counselor and Caddo Chieftess Christine Janssens stepped into the position of female Rogers Ozone Director. Christine, a native of Kansas City, MO and graduate of Baker University, brings energy and passion to the Ozone team!
What aspects of Ozone are you most excited to experience this year?
(Christine): I'm most excited for Thursday night [High School] Ozone because I get to hang out with some of my campers from this summer. I really enjoy connecting with high school girls, getting to know their hearts and being a part of their walk with Christ. Now that I'm involved with Ozone I get to be around these kids all the time and continually pour into them.
What originally attracted you to working for Ozone?
My love for kids and the opportunity to work full-time with directors, leaders and volunteers who have the same passion as I do.
What is your favorite Camp War Eagle memory?
The last day of 4th session, when my cabin had spent a hard two weeks gaining as many cabin challenge points as possible we decided to have a chill mish mash [free time at camp]. What we ended up doing was "planking" around camp and it was some of the most fun I'd ever had with my girls. Such a great bonding experience!
What personal gifts or skills are you most excited to share with Rogers Ozone?
I'm pumped to bring my excitement for Christ, life, sports, and kids to ozone. I love being intentional with kids and sharing my energy with them. I love utilizing the time spent just hanging out to really get to know kids and jump on the opportunity to talk about Christ with them.
What does your perfect day look like?
My perfect day would include, in any order
- Sleeping in until 9:30
- About an hour- hour and a half of working out/running
- Getting lunch with some of my girls from session 4
- Rocking out to 90s music while driving to this place
- Playing a game of soccer with Camp War Eagle people
- Making dinner with friends
- Reading Harry Potter- Having a couple hours to spend in the Word/with God
