Meet the Waterski Staff

13901476_10154455664607437_8581820405240957229_nHi, my name is Abby Holcomb. This year will be my second as Vega Staff and I couldn’t be more excited! As waterski staff this year I hope to help see every camper stand up on skis or board at least once! All my life I have loved the outdoors and everything that has to do with it! From camping every year with my family to traveling to new places and countries and visiting the things they have to see I have gained the love I will never lose for life outside! Besides sports, hiking, swimming, boating, etc., I love seeing my family, making new friends and hearing new stories, eating new delicious foods, and being at VEGA all summer long!


Hey Ya’ll! My name is Annalissa Jankowski, Anna for short! I’m 19, and super outgoing. This is my first year at camp Vega, as a water ski counselor! I attended Pensacola state college and received my associates degree in massage therapy in 2016, and then I just recently graduated for EMT school at the national EMS institute. I currently work as an EMS in Boston. I’m from Florida, so I’m at home when on the water. Super excited to be working with everyone and can’t wait to see all the cute smiles! Cant wait CAMP VEGA 2018!!!


screen-shot-2018-01-22-at-2-57-07-pmHi!! My name is Emily Tilson and I’m from New York City. I am so excited to be back at my summer home for an 8th summer at Vega! I finished my Tamary summer in 2014, and am so thrilled to be a part of the 2018 Waterski staff. I attend school in North Carolina at Wake Forest University, where I’m hoping to major in Business with a minor in Mandarin. Waterski was by far my favorite activity at camp! I was a member of the Waterski team for four years, as well as the owner of the trick ski hat during two of those years. Echo Lake is the most beautiful spot to be and I am counting down the days already! Yeah Vega 2018!!!!


fileHi! My name is Julia and I am so excited for my ninth summer at Vega! I am currently a freshman at Stanford University and plan to major in Engineering. I am originally from Weston, Massachusetts, but have really enjoyed the warmer weather since moving out to California this fall. In my free time I like to play tennis, run, and play with my dogs (I have two golden doodles!) As a camper, there was nothing I loved more than spending time on Echo Lake, and so I could not be more thrilled to work in ski staff this summer!! I am most looking forward to the 4th of July and meeting so many new campers and staff!


Hey! My name is Conor O’Rourke (Philomena, Bunkle Beauty Champion 2017) and I am SO excited to return to Vega for my second summer! I had so much fun last summer that I simply just had to return to Echo Lake. Currently I am in my final year at Cardiff Metropolitan University, Wales studying Sport Development. If any of you don’t know where Wales is, then you’ll find it attached to England, about 3 hours from London! Any time spent outdoors is time well spent: swimming, camp fires and of course tennis are my favorite hobbies at Vega. I loved every second of last summer and I am hoping that I have remembered all of your names! Can’t wait to see you all soon!

 Check back soon for more 2018 staff!
