Meet our New Camp Director!

May 8th, 2017

Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids is proud to welcome Blake de Jong as the new Camp Director! Learn a bit more about him below:

What excites you about working with youth?

I love to create an environment that will bring out the best in young people. At camp there are so many exciting opportunities to learn and grow. It's a great chance to see kids succeed at something brand new.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I studied International Development at Calvin College and spent a semester at a university in Kenya. While in college, I worked at a summer camp for five summers and realized that I wanted to stay in West Michigan and focus on this community.

Tell us 3 random facts about you.

I can lick my elbow. I went to John Ball Zoo School for sixth grade. I once got a camp award for catching animals and "using the Force."
