Hard to believe in roughly 50 days campers will be boarding buses, parents will be loading cars and camp will be filled with song and laughter. On May 17 our pre camp staff begin to arrive to prepare for our May Shabbat program that is being held on May 19. As I sit here by the gazebo looking at the lake in a light rain….I am in awe of the beauty that we call SLC. The lake is rising, the sun is setting and the rain….is just the icing on the cake….pure and simple bliss!
This past Sunday, we had Parent Camper Orientation. I had the pleasure of meeting many of the new families as did the staff. The kids had an opportunity to play gaga, do relays and experience playing in the fields. Those who arrived nervous about coming this summer left here having made new friends and put in bunk requests! It was an incredible day. A special thanks to my staff and the volunteers who gave 110% !
If you have friends who are still not sure of their summer plans, we have spots available in some areas in session one and two. Please have them call the office at 212 924 3131 and someone on staff will be happy to assist them.
Our 110th Anniversary year will be one to remember. Get Your Feet Wet, our 5 day introductory program at the end of August has 96 campers and a waiting list of 30! This summer we will have fireworks not just on the 4th of July but we will also have it an additional time in session 2. There will be parties, give aways, and special theme events including the always memorable Olympics……You don’t want to miss this summer.
I am going to head in so I can post this, but truth be told I could probably sit here until the first bus pulls in. We live 10 for 2…we can’t wait to see all of our returning camper and look forward to showing our new campers the “MAGIC” of SLC!
I hope to see you all soon. Until then, if you have any questions, suggestions, or just want to say hello…call us at the office.
See you when you come home….
The Crew at SLC
