Perfect season for Homemade Apple Pie

By | October 28th, 2012|

Hello all…  Hearty foods and rich baked goods are a perfect signal that colder weather is just around the corner making it just the perfect time for a delicious homemade apple pie. The smell alone reminds me of this time of year as the last of the apple harvests are being turned in to cider, pies and the like. Here is a start to finish Apple Pie recipe. For a quicker, simpler pie you may use a frozen pie crust that is ready to go… then all you have to do is prepare the filling and crumb topping! […]

What a weekend!

By | October 27th, 2012|

I love these kinds of weekends, there is so much going on in and around Camp it makes me proud to be part of such a great organization. After our last school group departed on Friday, Camp quickly transformed into a 10K Mud Run host site with over 500 people registered to partake in the 3rd installment of the Above & Beyond 10K Mud Run. At the same time, Mike Dzwill was putting the finishing touches on our float for the 67th Annual Medford-Vincentown Rotary Halloween Parade in which 32,000 pieces of candy will be given out by just our float [...]

By | October 16th, 2012|

So, Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom was just released on DVD and Blu-Ray last week and as an avid movie-watcher of any sort, camp movies in particular hold a special place in my  heart. I decided to share my Top 10 Camp Movies of All Time with the rest of the nation.

Moonrise Kingdom 7. The Great Outdoors (not really camp, but camping all the same) 8. Indian Summer 9. Addams Family [...]

Summer Camp 2013

By | October 13th, 2012|

With the addition of session 6, a co-ed Resident Camp program held on the grounds of Camp Matollionequay, our new indoor sports court for Lake Stockwell Day Camp, the amazing new water inflatable which will be shared by all three Camps, an additional day of swimming for members at Cherokee Beach and our Pre-School Camp based out of Cherokee Beach, 2013 Summer Camp cannot get here quickly enough. It amazes me each summer how quickly 10 weeks can pass by, but I am constantly reminded that as quickly as each summer passes by, it’s going to arrive just as quickly. [...]

Still All Sorts of Fun Going on Here at Camp!

By | October 9th, 2012|

Hi All! It's been too long since my last post so I wanted to bring everyone up to speed on all the great things that we've been doing since the last campers left for the summer just five weeks ago. In that short time, we've seen over 1600 students come to camp with 25 different schools! We've had 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Environmental Education trips, High School Retreats, Peer Leadership Groups, a variety of colleges, and even an entire Freshman Orientation with Stockton College. We've also had over a thousand people join us over the weekends for Family [...]

Two Choices

By | October 5th, 2012|

This is probably the most powerful thought of the day I have ever heard.  I received this as an email forward about 10 years ago and we often use it before our Special Events day competitions.  It usually takes 2 people to read it because the readers often get overcome with emotion.  What a beautiful message!  I hope you enjoy it. At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves learning disabled children, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a [...]
