The Bergstrom Fellowship awards men of Pi Kappa Phi who dedicate their summer to service as a counselor for a camp that serves people with disabilities. The program is designed to give men of Pi Kappa Phi who have a desire to serve a camp as a counselor, have a summer job, and gain additional distinction and scholarship for their efforts.
Members who have participated in this program have come away with some of the best life experience when working with people with disabilities. There is no better way to learn about a person than spending time with them day in and day out. Summer camp experiences are the ultimate in interaction and provide a great opportunity for more than just a surface encounter of meeting someone once or twice. Members get to know the campers on a very personal level.
If you are a camp supporting people with disabilities and are looking for camp counselors, please contact Andrew Matznick.
