Hey, Camp Folks!
Say hello to Mellina—our year-round help and organizational guru in our Graphic Department production. We make all of our personalized products right here in our own, local facility factory. Mellina runs production on a daily basis which involves designing and printing our Clothing Name Labels, Clothing Stamps, Stick-On Labels, Lid Skinz, Autograph Pillowcases, Embroidered Laundry Bags, Camp Clothing, and pretty much every other personalized product we offer.
Needless to say, her job keeps her busy, busy, busy—especially so in the summertime.
Before the busy days of adulthood, Mellina would frequently go on family hiking trips through the woodsy wilderness of northwestern Wisconsin. Her folks would often take her and her siblings on camping trips too. “I attended summer camp through the YMCA at Manitou one year and loved it,” she said. “We’ve taken the kids camping a few times and plan to more often since they’re getting older now!”
Nowadays, she’s an early bird—up with her two young kids, she typically chooses to start her workday earlier than anyone else at Everything Summer Camp. And after an often-times exhausting shift, Mellina goes home to her lovely family. She and her husband Jeremy cherish every moment with their adorable children Henry, 7, and Nora, 5.
With these two little ones of her own, Mellina takes great pride in her work, knowing how much young campers will appreciate a job well done. “My favorite part is making the personalized items for kids, especially the embroidery,” she told me. “Having an unusual name, as a kid I could never find trinkets with my name on them. Finally my parents had a barrette made for me and it really made me feel special. I hope these kids feel special when they see the items we make with their names on them.”
We hope you treasure all the fun personalized products we create for you in our Graphics Department and, as always, thanks for reading.
