Why did she become a mermaid?
Ever since Avalon was a little girl, she dreamed of being a part of the sea…namely, a mermaiden! She hung posters from scuba diving magazines all over her bedroom walls and daydreamed of whales, dolphins and other sea friends. Family trips to the beach were well loved and outings to the Baltimore, Camden, and New England Aquarium remain in her heart forever.
Even when Avalon “grew up” to become a young lady, she still felt like she belonged to the sea. She still had her dream and never once thought it to be silly or unattainable.
In January 2012, Avalon first saw other mermaids swimming in pools and oceans….so, there were others with the same feeling! She learned how to swim in her tail (it was tricky!) and decided that she’d love to share her dream with children and adults alike. In a world where childhood is rushed and inundated by the latest fads, technology, and a push for children to “grow up quicker”, Avalon hopes to bring a bit of magic, wonder, and love.

My name is Christine “Cas” Schoeller and I am a professional face painter, serving the Pocono, Lehigh Valley & surrounding areas. I have always loved art & did a lot of decorative painting & calligraphy. When my kids were little I started volunteering to face paint at our church & their schools. I was continually asked if I could be hired for parties. So, after 15 years of being a stay at home Mom, I decided it was time to invest in a professional kit & start my own face painting business. I have been painting professionally for almost 2 years now & it brings me such great joy!
I get such pleasure out of painting & creating beautiful designs, but nothing compares to the look on the child’s face as they look in the mirror, after being painted! That is, for sure, the best part of the job! :-)

Captain’s Kids Club was created to focus our attention on children’s entertainment and services.
Our mission is to bring joy and happiness to children and the young at heart by bringing their favorite characters to life and making their fantasies a reality even if it is just for a moment in time. After all, we are all that young for only an instant. We should make it last as long as your imagination will let you. Captain’s Kids Club is dedicated to the welfare of all children everywhere. Please help us help our youth any way we can. Remember”…and a child shall lead them.”
