LETTER FROM Little kids Day Camp Director

Dear Drakes Island Friends and Families,

I can’t wait for summer 2017 on Drakes Island and I am so excited to have the opportunity to be the Little Kid’s Director! When I was 15 years old I started working for the DIIA as an Hourly Counselor filling in at Little Kid’s Camp, Big Kid’s Camp as well as all nightly activities. I really enjoyed being a part of all of the summer activities on Drakes... and I still do!

This summer, I am excited to announce that Connor Seeley will be assisting me with camp. He was once my fellow camper, and a 2nd Assistant to Nicholas Wuerthner and, my brother Lukas Hall, for Big Kid’s Camp. I am very confident that he will be a great addition to Little Kid’s Camp.

I have been working and volunteering with kids since I was 15 years old. I was an Hourly Counselor for the DIIA, as stated above. I worked, year-round, for the Wells Park and Recreation Center as a Camp Counselor for grades K-5th. I also volunteered at the Wells Elementary School teaching PE for kindergarteners and assisting in a third and fourth grade English class during my senior year of high school. I feel that I can provide a safe, fun and welcoming environment to the Little Kids Camp. I want the kids on DI to enjoy day camp as much, if not more, than I did as a kid. Having fun is what DI is all about as a child!

I plan on changing the daily routine at LKC this summer. I have devised a summer long schedule with new games and activities, I am incorporating “Buddy Time” where some big kid campers will interact with the younger kids, Thursday mornings Guest Readers (parents/grandparents/Aunts/Uncles etc…), parachute time, and crafts 1-2 times a week depending on the weather.

I am confident that I will offer a safe, fun environment where my campers will want to come to camp every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and where parents/grandparents will feel comfortable dropping their children off at camp each day under the supervision of both Connor and myself.

I have so many great memories from my summers of attending DI Day Camp. Drakes Island is a special place and camp was something that I always looked forward to every summer and I cannot wait for another incredible season!

Sincerely,

Nickolas Hall
2017 Director of the Little Kid's Camp
