This winter has been one for the books, snow and cold followed by cold and snow followed by snow and cold; enough already. I do not wish to bemoan the weather since there is little we can do about it , but this past winter season has increased my level of anticipation to a new high. I am longing to put on my shorts to come to work, to jump in the pool or just go outside. But mostly I’m looking forward to the return of Summer Camp. The staff and the campers are what summer is all about.
Last week I attended the American Camping Association’s conference in Atlantic City. This is the largest camping conference in the country; four days of seminars and a vendor’s exhibit area featuring some new toys for camp. Every year I get new ideas and buy some really cool toys for camp. In future posts I will talk about some of these purchases as they are delivered, but for now let me say I’m really excited about the items I ordered and really, really looking forward to Summer.
