We are on the other side of the New Year. Welcome 2018, and we are in countdown mode. Camp opens in just 134 more days!
There is so much going on. Heidi, Mary-Elizabeth and I had a fantastic swing through Thomasville, Tallahassee and Jacksonville last week. We loved seeing so many old friends and alumnae, and we got to meet many new folks, some of whom are already signed up for camp this summer. We are off to Atlanta this weekend for another gathering of new and old friends, all in support of the Keystone Camp experience. Friends play such a vital role in life, and when you ask our campers what it is about camp that means the most to them, it is inevitably the friendships they make. Our alums are always recounting stories of how they are still in touch with their camp friends today.
Now, for the fun. Heidi, Mary-Elizabeth, Martha and I are working hard around the conference table on the new website for Keystone. We will let you know when it goes live as we are excited to receive your feedback. We think you will LOVE it! The website is just one of several big projects underway in preparation for the summer.
Martha and Mary-Elizabeth have been working on the Evening Program and Special Events Calendar. They really enjoyed uncovering the history of Christmas at Keystone. The news actually appeared in an article in the Washington Post newspaper in 1933! We thought you would enjoy seeing it:
Martha and Mary-Elizabeth are also very happy to have an assistant helping them. Apple comes pretty cheap. Just a fresh bowl of water and the occasional dog treat, and she stays close to offer her input.
Just 4 ½ more months to camp!
