Thanks go out to Dave for the much needed work done to a sad, old door!! Be good… Chef...

Hello dear readers… It is Sunday. Two days after the end of our Summer Day Camp program. We are in the middle of our Labor Day Family Camp Weekend… packed to the brim with folks enjoying the beautiful weather and activities here at Camp. As I drove around the property today I saw something shocking!!! The leaves on some of the trees here at Camp have already begun to CHANGE color!! There is no truer sign that summer has passed us by.

End of Summer

Posted by on Sep 3, 2010

What a WONDERFUL summer! We had a blast swimming, playing and connecting with friends. THANK YOU to all of the campers for being with us…Your endless energy and willingness to play hard made this summer so fun! We hope that you met new people, reconnected with old friends, learned a little and had a fantastic experience with us.  THANK YOU to all of the parents for entrusting us with your children. Also, thanks for dropping off and picking up everday…A dirty, sweaty camper means a good day, right?!  Lastly, THANK YOU to the staff! When I take potential camp families on tours of Camp, I always tell them that our staff is our biggest asset. The creativity, patience and positive attitude that they bring to their work is…well…inspiring. We’re enjoying our last day of Summer 2010 – putting final touches on skits and squeezing in final games of Ga-Ga!  Please keep in touch with us throughout the year and check out our website (www.ycamp.org) to learn about our upcoming events.  We’re getting ready to countdown the days until Summer...
