Camp Chat December 16 - Best time of the camp day!Yesterday I was talking to Jay Bach about summer camp 2016.  You know Jay – he has worked nearly 50 years at camp!  Jay has been our Transportation Director ever since I have known him.  When we finished our conversation I couldn’t help but think about how valued Jay is by everyone at camp.  I also kept thinking that my favorite time of camp is when the buses and cars arrive to drop off our campers every morning.  We have Jay to thank for their safe arrival (and departure) every day.

I enjoy greeting campers every morning.  The day is filled with so much promise and the looks on the campers’ faces reflect their happiness and optimism for their day ahead.  All smiles as they exit the bus or car – usually ready to share a story or two with the staff who are greeting them.  I witness the true connections the campers have with our staff and their genuine relationships.  Both camper and staff are ready to begin their day of adventure and fun – together!

The best part of the camp day for me … yes, it is the beginning.  The promise of all the happy times ahead and sharing in the experience with camp friends. No wonder they are all smiles!  What a great way to begin any day!
