Summer Camp 2019 Wrap Up

 img

 Another camp season has officially ended, and as your summer camp director for the ninth consecutive year, it is always a bittersweet ending. Yes, the camp was a huge success, but the campers bring with them an extra layer of energy, smiles and enthusiasm to the club that has disappeared now that they are back in school.

On a personal note, I am truly blessed to have had five Hills summer campers return year after year since about the age of 5 years old. By next summer, these kids will "age out" as teenagers and not be returning in 2020. It has been an honor to have each of them at the camp for nearly 7 straight summers, and I wish them all the best of luck. And you never know...I might be lucky enough to have one or two of them come back as camp counselors a few years from now! In addition to the veteran campers, there were quite a few new campers this summer who all seemed to have enjoyed their weeks here, so I'm guessing (and hoping) they'll be returning next summer.

Looking back at the past 10 weeks of camp, my goal for the campers were to not only have fun, but to learn the following valuable lessons:

  1. Teamwork
  2. Communication
  3. Determination
  4. Patience
  5. How to have fun!

This summer's camp counselors: Kyle Johnson, Nadia Brooks and Mitch Curtis, ensured that the campers stayed safe while having fun each week. A special thanks to the three of them for helping successfully lead our 10 weeks of summer camp.

I cannot thank you, the families, enough for signing your children up for camp. I look forward to getting summer camp 2020 up and running. Dates and time will be determined in the coming weeks. The new brochure will be readily available by the time of our annual Halloween Party on October 25th.
I hope all of your kids have a great school year and I look forward to seeing them up at the club throughout the year. Lastly, hope to see as many of them as possible back for Summer Camp 2020! If you need to reach out to me with any questions or concerns between now and then, please feel free to do so at alum@caclubs.com.
