A Few Thoughts From Our Director

Notes from the Director, August 25, 2017

Notes from the Director August 25, 2017 Number Ninety in the Books. I guess it’s always good to reaffirm science.  Summers must start.  Summers must end.  It would probably end up bad for all of us if camp just lasted forever.  Don’t get me wrong, we’d have a blast, but I’m not sure we’d all […]

Notes from the Director, May 30, 2017

Notes from the Director May 30, 2017 We Got You. Here it is, the day before it all begins.  (actually it began a while ago when we started mowing and accepting forms)  But yes, the staff arrive in mass tomorrow for a few days of dedicated training and preparation.  For Camp La Junta this is […]

Basketball and Frogs

Christmas reminds us […]

Notes from the Director – October 1

Notes from the Director October 1, 2011 Although Cheryl and I are the youngest possible folks to have 30 years of Camp Experience (applause) we do have a senior in high school. And yes, it comes with many perks. Dirty uniforms and steady requests for late nights. Steadier requests to just miss a day here […]
