Another Season of Father/Son Weekends is Wrapping Up
It’s almost May and no, we’re not getting ready for camp, we’re getting ready for Father/Son weekend number 3. It’s hard to realize, but this is our 24th Spring to host father and son weekends. We had no idea back in 1994 that not only would Dad’s tolerate a weekend without the conveniences of home, that they would crave the excitement of a two days alone with their littlest buddy, shooting, riding and swimming. We’ve watched the weekends go from Basketball to SWAT and 9 square. From canoeing to kayaking. From rapids to rope swing. From 20 dads at a time to 65 dads at a time.
In nearly 25 years and over 70 weekends, we continue to see not only the joy of getting to do camp but the confidence of new guys as they determine that this is their place. When they return in the summer, they know some staff. They know the flow. And they know the water slide. It’s been a great journey.
As we prepare to wrap up our final Father/Son of the Spring, it’s time to start putting final touches on the program. The staff are pretty much lined up, but now they have to be trained. The menu is set, but the orders need to be made. The program is outlined, but now the supplies need to arrive. Your guys are ready to go, we just need paperwork and foot lockers!
Have a great end to the school year. We are getting more excited by the day for your little guys to become our little guys!
Life if Good. Camp is Better.
