Tomorrow we will be having a mini summit at the camp office. That means we are offically starting (truth be told we never stop) preparation for the summer of 2011. Avri is in England, Jordan is heading to Israel, and Celia will be off to Eastern Eurpope to finalize our staff. I saw a red Jeep today but it was not Harry…oh well… soon enough. It is beginning to feel a lot like camp! Yes, I know they are predicting more snow for this Friday, but at SLC it is SUMMER!
As I sit here preparing for what looks to be a great summer I wanted to share a few things with you. First of all, the team at SLC has been working very hard, making sure the summer of 2011 will be one to remember. We are sending out contracts and bringing back the best of the best to round out our staff. Jordan Waldman, Andrew Schuster and Stacey Lilien are now Unit Supervisors! I can’t wait to work with them in their new roles. Please don’t ask me where they are working…we have not decided yet.
Karen has been working hard looking for new and exciting activities for the summer! This year look for intercamp tournaments, special events, incredible trips, Olympics in Session 2 and drum roll please…….THE CIRCUS IS COMING in Session 2! Yes, you read that right….Surprise Lake Camp will be having a one week Circus Camp. The performers in the circus will be our very own campers! I don’t know about you but I can’t wait.
We are in the process of polling everyone for our Olympic theme, please check out our facebook page and vote for the theme you would like this summer. Whammy has assured me that this summer is going to blow everyone away!
So now you have some insight into session 2…what about session 1? Hmmm……let’s just say it is action packed. The calendar is filling up nicely with special events, theme days, and much more…..I can’t tell you all we have planned because that will ruin the surprises! We are looking forward to a wonderful summer, which is only 160 days away for those of you who are counting. We also have some special fish for the summer of 2011. For those who have been here before know the value of fish….those who are new (and we love our new campers) will find out soon enough.
We are filling up quickly and some age groups have wait lists so if you want to share the magic of Surprise Lake Camp with your friends tell them to check us out at www.surpriselake.org or call the office at 212 924 3131 and someone will be happy to help them. We also have many incentive programs including $1000 off for most 1st time campers. If you have any questions regarding our programs or would like a home visit just let us know….you provide the families and we will provide the food and the information. Don’t forget to tell them about our bar/bat mitzvah program….camp and a bar mitzvah at a fraction of the price.
Share the joy of SLC! We are too good to be a secret!
