"Our community is about the people and the times we spend together. We could have Camp in a parking lot if we needed to!" I think I first heard our camp's Owner/Director Scott Brody proudly make that claim almost 20 years ago, and it feels as true today as it did then. Just this past weekend almost 200 of our campers and counselors got together for a party in Stamford, CT and within minutes it felt like we were back at Camp...minus the beautiful weather and bucolic campus. I always find it incredible at an event like one of our reunions to stand back and watch how excited and happy everyone is to see each other. There's so much hugging and jumping up and down. And as we've written about in recent blogs, even when our leadership team is in other countries to interview potential new staff members former counselors take time out of their busy lives to see their Camp friends and help our community pick the best new recruits. The friendships formed at our sleepaway camp in NH are deep, meaningful and truly last a lifetime!
This weekend we hosted our biggest camper reunion of the entire year! Almost 200 campers, and a whole lot of counselors and parents gathered at Chelsea Piers in Stamford, CT for an evening of hanging out with camp friends. It's so incredible to watch how excited everyone is to see each other after months apart, and how quickly they jump back into the closeness of their camp friendships.
