In recent years, we have read a great deal about grit and resilience.
Our Camp Champions family is delighted to introduce our newest member – Walter Mesches Messner (Wally Sir to his camp friends).
When I wrote the article earlier this week about connection and nature, I found it truly hard to find a photo to complement.
After watching this Nature Valley video with our Champions team [note: we remain indifferent to your granola bar of choice], I noticed three things. First, Kate Hutson (our director of New Families) cleared a tear from her eye. Second, Susie Ma’am smiled and reminisced. “We made forts just like she described when I was a girl.” Finally, Greg Golf (the boys director) commented that it made him so happy that he went to camp and that he can serve children through camp. We all agreed entirely. While clearly an advertisement, it hit a nerve with us.
