Lawn Lunch Enhanced
Greg’s Grill, given in honor of Greg Fleming by camp staff alums who had the privilege of serving during Greg’s tenure as Camp Director, overlooks Walloon Lake, just out front of the dining hall. Through the support of these camp staff alums, the former “lawn lunch” will have a whole new look for summer 2019. The permanent covered canopy will allow grill service daily, except in extreme weather (and we won’t need your help holding down the canopy when it’s windy!), updated grilling and smoking equipment, an enhanced menu, and a spot for mid-afternoon smoothies (moved from the North Lounge).
Your Raffle Dollars at Work
Your support throughout the summer at the end of the week raffle allows us to enhance our programs and facility. For the summer of 2019, we’ve added some new guns at riflery, purchased kegerators for our porch party and Keg & Koke, and replaced the carpet in the Ed Center (Furniture to follow next year).
Sustainability and Programming
Look for an infusion of sustainability in our morning programs for our kids’ groups, as we partnered winter semester with a group of Campus and Sustainability 391 students to look at ways to infuse sustainable programming into our morning rotations.
Keg & Koke Increase (and better beer!)
The donation for Keg & Koke has been $1 since its inception. The quality of beer provided reflected the donation level. Camps Council has recommended we raise the price 100% to $2 for Summer 2019, and, we’ll provide craft beer. So, come join us at Keg & Koke, raise a (better) cup of beer, and relive the memories of your week.
The director’s chat will continue on Wednesday morning in the forum room, giving campers an opportunity to discuss the Strategic Plan and Camp Expansion you were surveyed about in January, the schedule shift for Summer 2020, or anything else you have questions, comments, or concerns about.
