From Camp Mennoscah to Bethel

Hello all! My name is Melinda Regehr. I am a junior here at Bethel and am majoring in Social work with a minor in Psychology. I am involved in many things here on campus, like SAA, SAC, and SCAN… or I just liked how those words looked on here, you can decide for yourself. I work in Admissions and Student life and am now writing for this lovely blog! I also volunteer at Western District Conference Library for my service learning scholarship.

 Lastly, I like to keep myself busy with going to Applebees for half price apps, going to Druber’s (not really for the donuts, but for the Uno Blitz playing), hanging out with friends, and of course studying! Sometimes I sleep, but only when I have nothing else to do.

Since I have only been at Bethel for a week, I will tell you what I have been doing for the past few months. I was on summer staff at Camp Mennoscah as the office assistant. What did this include?? Well, many things. I ordered pictures, made address sheets, ordered bunches and bunches of pizza every Friday, I swam in flour and water, saw someone eat an enormous, squirming grasshopper, I spent many hours with some amazing staff, and I spent many hours with

 some really amazing kids. I did all this and at the same time had time to find God in my life. It’s amazing how hard it is to make time for God in my life at school, but so easy to find God in all the running around at camp. This picture is of all of the Camp Mennoscah summer staff. We are some stunning Doctors! 

Since I was at Camp from June-August, I really did not do much else. I went to a few weddings and that’s about all. This picture is from Aaron & Rachel Rudeen’s wedding. The girl next to me is Katelyn Melgren… nothing else needs to be said.

Just in case you are wondering who I live with… here are some of them. Yes, it is quite the adventure! My mod is full of tennis players, singers, writers, Music majors, Education majors, Social work majors, and I think even a Biology major. I am very excited to live with these amazing people and even more excited for this year in general!
