At Camp Fish Tales annual “Fish Races”, the camp presented the 3rd annual Ben Wackerle “Keep the Fire Burning Award” to Thomas N. Thelen, a long time supporter, fundraiser, and board member of Camp Fish Tales.
Mr. Thelen has been instrumental in the construction of new structures at camp as well putting in procedures that help bring Camp Fish Tales to the next level. His commitment to camp has made him the recipient of the Ben Wackerle “Keep the Fire Burning” award. We are thankful for you, Tom!
We are excited to announce that our 3rd Annual Fish Races Fundraiser brought in $30,173.00!!! We are so extremely grateful! We couldn’t have done it without our gracious sponsors, all of the volunteers, the many people that donated items and guests that showed up that night. Thank you!

My name is Jodi Scholma. I’m very excited to be working as the Camp Director of Camp Fish Tales for the summer. I love working with people who have disabilities and therefore I chose to get my bachelors degree in Special Education. I have taught in the classroom for 5 years as well as I’ve worked in group homes, and at day camps. I also love different cultures and to travel. I have lived in Spain, Liberia and Israel; a total of three continents. Out of all of the jobs I’ve had, my all time favorite job, was working at a camp. I’ve worked at a camp in Indiana and in New Mexico. At these camps I’ve worked as counselor, mountain biking instructor, dining hall assistant and lifeguard. No matter what title or position you have; you can guarantee it will be great fun if you’re working at a camp.
