How many people does it take to make a difference?

ONE! One song can spark a moment One flower can wake the dream One tree can start a forest One bird can herald spring One smile begins a friendship One handclasp lifts a soul One star can guide a ship at sea One word can frame the goal One vote can change a nation One sunbeam lights a room One candle wipes out darkness One laugh will conquer gloom One step must start each journey One word must start a prayer One hope will raise our spirits One touch can show you care One voice can speak with wisdom One [...]

Thank you School’s Out Staff!

I love going around to visit different School's Out sites and seeing the staff interact and doing awesome activities! Today, I was able to just drive around and visit staff and kids and was really luck to see some pretty cool things going on.... Making playdough, friendship bracelets, slime, sand art, and time capsuls were just a few of the things that I saw today. Thank you School's Out staff for making my day :)

Perfect Pancakes…

By |2011-09-11T11:29:54-04:00September 11th, 2011|

Hello folks… Here’s a perfect pancake recipe for you to try at home. It involves a two part process… a dry mixture that can be made ahead of time (much like an “instant” pancake mix)… and then the wet portion that you would mix up on the spot when you are ready for your breakfast feast. […]

Excited for 2012

By |2011-09-09T14:36:02-04:00September 9th, 2011|

As sad as it is to see summer end, it's a great challenge to get ready for next year.  It's time to start the process all over again.  We're excited to look for new ideas to implement next summer to make it even better than this summer.  We've had a lot of good ideas from many of our staff and campers and I think they will have a big impact on our program.  This past summer, we changed up our schedule to give our older campers at Ocky more opportunities to choose their activities.  We also introduced 2 Carpetball tables, [...]

Looking Forward…

Success is waking up in the morning, whoever you are, wherever you are, however old or young, and bounding out of bed because there's something out there you love to do, that you believe in, that you're good at - something that's bigger than you are, and you can hardly wait to get at it again today.  -Whit Hobbs Counting down the days until next summer at Camp Matollionequay...
