VP of Camping Message, Fall 2015

a message from Callum McKee, VP of Camping

Manager of outdoor services

Hello Alumni,

What a beautiful fall we've had, and it's been a busy one focusing on our camp projects. There is never a dull moment in the camp office or, at the end of a shovel!

Although there have been some unforeseen obstacles in its construction, the new Belwood pool will be open for the 2016 camp season. Many fall days have been spent at Belwood, and we are happy to report that the "base," pool shed, and electrical are complete.

The Ki-Wa-Y Garden and Greenhouse are now taking shape. With the garden site prepped and the physical construction of the Greenhouse underway, excitement in the project's potential is being sensed by all of us involved in this stage.

Due to some required redesign work, there has been a set-back to the original start date for the Wabanaki dining hall renovation. No need for concern, we expect actual construction to begin in 2016.

I hope you'll come and see your camp's latest project by joining us on one or more of our Alumni Days next spring. These days are such a great opportunity to spend some family time enjoying what camp has to offer, while reconnecting with old friends.

Until spring, I wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday season.
