In case you haven’t heard….that is what we are..Our goal for the summer and every day going forward…Surprise Lake Camp is committed to a summer of WOW. This is not just about talking the talk…it is about walking the walk as well. We have embrace the culture of the fish philosophy and now we are raising the bar again. From the Executive Director to the Administrative team to the Counselors to the Support Staff….nothing less than WOW.
Our Key Staff spent the past weekend up at camp laying the groundwork for this summer. We came up with lots of wonderful ideas that we will put into place. It all starts with Supervisors weekend that we hold in early June,(it actually starts the day we leave camp) will continue through staff orientation and throughout the summer. Anything less than WOW or extraordinary is not acceptable! Each camper will leave camp with a truly memorable experience……
