Molly "Hypothermia" Samboy

East Avenues Volunteer of the Month is Molly "Hypothermia" Samboy.  As a Junior Counselor at East Avenue Camps Hypothermia's overall role is to assist the counselor in facilitating activities for the campers while helping to maintain a safe environment. However, Hypothermia went beyond those duties by becoming a leader amongst the volunteers and an example to the campers.

Hypothermia's (aka Molly) patience, creativity, and commitment to the campers and the program was an impeccable example of what volunteers and staff alike should strive to be. She volunteered for morning and afternoon shifts through X-Camp; came prepared with crafts and activities (usually the job of a counselor); and constantly entertained the campers with her goofiness and shenanigans. Having come up through the program as a camper herself, Hypothermia truly understands how to embody the meaning and spirit of camp and create lasting memories for our campers.  Hypothermia dedicated more time this summer than any other volunteer.
