Executive Director’s Report

I believe that we have seen the last of the snow … at least for this season! The camp really took a battering and, even more importantly, our itinerary of pre-camp tasks has been delayed and postponed due to the “Ice Age” that we all experienced this past winter. The good news is that we have worked diligently and are on track for opening in June. And, if it is any consolation, the Farmer’s Almanac predicts that we are going to have extreme heat and humidity, beginning in June!

We are resilient, however, and we have an excellent, but small, group of staff who wear all kinds of hats, and perform all kinds of feats, in order to make this summer experience work for everyone. Pre-season is a very important time for camp preparation, including attending resource fairs, completing repairs and renovations on our buildings, staff recruitment, scheduling entertainment for the summer weeks, booking Rotary BBQs and preparing our intensive “Training Boot Camp Week,” which staff go through prior to the arrival of the children.

The children who attend, the parents who trust us, the staff who travel 6,000 miles away from their comfort zone of family and friends, and our own local youth who work part-time during the summer — all of this must come together, despite whatever Mother Nature threw our way during the winter.

Here’s to a great summer season!
