Best Present Ever!

I know that it is barely Halloween and here I am blogging about Christmas. But just think of it... You sitting around the tree on Christmas morning, you hand your child a small package. They open it and inside is a camp t-shirt. They thank you and say it's a cool gift.Then you tell them that isn't all...they also are going to camp for a week!

Can you imagine their excitement?

But your probably thinking.." Jim- camp is so expensive! My Christmas budget would be totally devastated by paying for a whole week of camp!"

We can help. You pay the deposit of $100 to secure a spot for the week you want this summer. You can make payments from now until June to pay off the rest.  And with the new tiered pricing , we can help even more!

What a great gift! I wish I could get a week of camp for Christmas.

So how do you get started?

1. Sign up and pay the deposit between December 1st and December 15th, and we will send you a free camp t-shirt for under the tree. (you will need to email us your child's size and the address you want it sent to). If you sign up after December 15th, we can not guarantee that you will get the t-shirt in time. The free t-shirt offer expires December 21st.


2. Have friends and family purchase Moosebucks . We have one camper that has asked all of her relatives for moosebucks for Christmas so she can come to camp next summer. Visit to get find out more. We will apply moosebucks to your account once we receive the certificates from you in the mail.

Don't forget about the HERD program...bring three new friends and get a week of camp for free! Bring you little brother/sister, your BFF, or even a friend from school! Check out the herd page for details.

Join us here at camp on Saturday, December 1st for our holiday event and registration kick off. Lots of hot cocoa, singing and decoration making . Bring those potential HERD campers and win a special prize! We will be announcing the winner of the parent survey contest and will have lots of giveaways. I heard that the camp store might even be open!

We hope to see you there!

Favorite Picture

Hello everyone, Sorry it's been awhile since I was able to post something. This Fall has gotten away from me.

I've been working on some slideshows for each week of camp, and will be positing them soon. (Week 1 slideshow should come out later this week). I am also working on a publicity slide show for folks to use to show off camp.

As I was working on them, I came across this picture, and it's one of my favorites.

 Not because it's a pretty picture. This picture reminds me that once in awhile I need to slow down and enjoy camp. My radio and keys are right there, yet I have stopped worrying about revenue, staff issues and the one hundred other things that go on in the average day at camp. For that moment I am just a camp director playing checkers with a camper.

For the record, the reason why his face looks like that was because I just got a "king" and he is trying to escape.

We all need to stop and enjoy what we do sometimes.

Well, I got to get back to work. Keep an eye out for the slideshow for week 1!

See you soon.
