Katherine Decker (Swim)


This is Katherine’s first year as a counselor, but her TENTH year at Sewataro (she’s been in our CIT program for the past two summers). Katherine is a rising senior at Wellesley High School, and her hobbies include making friendship bracelets, cross-country skiing, and playing the oboe. She is looking forward to being on the “counseling” side of the camp experience this summer, and hopes to be a role model to all of the campers she meets! “When I was in the Navajo, I put every single pin I earned from the years I had been here on a single shirt and wore it to camp. Everybody loved seeing my Sewataro spirit, and it inspired a spirit day in my tribe for everyone else to wear as many pins as possible on their shirts!”

Another of her favorite memories at camp was definitely being a part of the first ever Sewataro overnight! “It thunderstormed the whole night and we had to sleep in the lodge like one giant slumber party, but it was such a fun adventure and a great bonding experience! The morning after we got pancakes on Alba’s lawn while in our pj’s, and we got custom pins that said ‘I survived Sewataro’s very first overnight!’ with a lightning bolt in the background.”
