Every little bit counts…

Posted by on Oct 15, 2010

Hello Friends… As you may or may not know, October is “Breast Cancer Awareness Month”. Here at Camp, in the Kitchen, we are doing something small to contribute to the cause. The Dannon yogurt company has placed special lids on their products that contain a code that you can enter on the website www.cupsofhope.com . Dannon will donate 10 cents for every code entered to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. If you’ve ever eaten Breakfast at Camp you know we serve yummy yogurt and guess what… it’s Dannon!! Nick and I have been saving lids and entering codes by the dozens… doing our small part to support the bigger picture. Knowing, personally, a few brave and wonderful women who have developed and fought breast cancer, I thought I’d use this outlet to share and promote ‘giving’. Wether it be 10 cents at a time or 25 dollars here or there or something more magnanimous… We can all do something to help out in our communities. Supporting a place like Camp with a donation can help ensure that every child who wants to come to Camp can afford to and that Camp will be here for generations to come. This question will be rhetorical but something for you to think about and discuss with your families… How do you ‘give back’ to your community? Be good… Chef...

Getting our hands dirty…

Posted by on Oct 14, 2010

Greetings Friends of Camp… Last weekend we had another hugely successful Roll Up Tour Sleeves Weekend!! We had about 60 participants come out and spend some time lending a hand to spruce up Camp. Among the projects completed were a new bike rack for Matolly, a makeover to the flower bed in front of the Ocky Dining Hall (pictured below) and to the flower beds at both front entrances, a new Gaga court by the Trading Post at Ocky, remodeling inside the Ocky Boat House, staining of various structures, new benches all around Camp, new lighting at our Headquarters Building, brush clearing and much, much more. We here at Camp can’t express enough gratitude to each and every person who took the time out of their busy lives to come and offer a little little sweat and elbow grease to make some much needed improvements all around our beautiful property. We hope to see you all again in the Spring!!! Be good… Chef...
