Thanks to the more than 50+ folks who came to our Open House on May 4. It was great meeting many campers who will be new to us this summer and to see returners eager to view the many improvements. Several new campers arrived at camp nervous and uncertain and left counting the days until the exciting summer ahead. If you missed the Open House and would like to see Camp, give us a call (855.378.1928) and we would be delighted to give you a tour.
We are excited for you to meet our counselor team on opening day. You can read their biographies HERE. Our senior leadership team is featured HERE. Lifeguard training and leadership team orientation begin June 4th while the rest of our counselors arrive June 9th for 11 days of pre-summer training. We are eager for folks to arrive.
Despite 32 inches of rain so far this year, we hear from old timers that camp looks “the best it has in 25 years.” and to this we eagerly reply. “And you haven’t seen anything, yet!” Nick, Tom and Alaska, our core maintenance team, have been joined by several Adventure Treks instructors who are busy painting, building, mowing and painting some more as we prepare for opening day on June 20. We just completed new changing rooms by the gym (so you can spend more time swimming and less time walking to your cabin to change) and we are busy building a new porch complex in Boys’ World. We had a water slide test party Friday and we saw a lot of smiles on young faces! No one complained that the slide was too slow!
This week Urban Outfitters will be at camp filming for their online catalog. On Sunday, May 19th at 1 Pm we will host the rescheduled Gnarliest Kids Adventure Race Ever. Over 200 kids will compete in an obstacle course race through nine different activities. There are still a few spaces left. You can sign up HERE. This will be so much fun.
New this summer is our Activities Book. We have made a huge push to improve the quality of our instruction in activities and this new book (which you get to take home at the end of the summer) helps you track all that you have learned over the summer. In addition, counselors are equipped with an upgraded field manual that reinforces their teaching skills. Activities Director Maggie Allen gets credit for an outstanding job creating this state of the art system.
We hope you too are counting the days until camp begins. See you soon!
