Executive Director's Report

Does anyone else out there feel as if it has been an ice age since we have seen green? We look to the Olympics being held in Sochi, and we almost feel as if we are there. Here at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, we have plenty of frozen tundra, icy inclines, many paths and paved areas snuggled so deeply under layers of ice that we hardly recognize the terrain. It is a far cry from the life that abounds here from April through November. Even though it is cold outside, inside we celebrate the warm hearts and lives of the staff and children who visit us each summer. This past weekend, the respite program held two dances instead of the usual Saturday night dance. Too cold and dangerous to venture outdoors, the Valentine's theme permeated the weekend.

This month, we hosted two open houses for new campers to come and learn a bit about the camp. Unfortunately, we may not be giving the camp tours in person as it is under ice right now! Fortunately, a young woman who is a new friend of the camp from an old and well-loved camp family, Katie Fuoco, directed and produced a wonderful video about the camp last year. This is what we can show new families when "Old Man Winter" stops us from giving actual tours.

Not only did Katie spearhead this project of creating a new video for us (check it out on the website!), but her dad, Steve Fuoco, spearheads the Fuoco Memorial Golf Feastival, which has become a huge event for the camp. Both Katie and her dad have proven to many that they truly care about the future of this camp through the enormous work that they each put into these projects. I am sure that the rest of the Fuoco family was involved in these endeavors as well.

So, as you cozy up to a roaring fire, and watch the Olympics continue and conclude uneventfully (we hope and pray), please think spring and warmth! At the risk of sounding redundant, come see us this spring. Think about taking a drive out to one of the open house dates; spread the word about who we are and what we do. To all of our Rotary friends and family who have a "special someone," please bring your special someone out to meet us. We exist for "special someones" and it does not even have to be Valentine's Day!

Till next time,

Yours in Camping!
