Dear Drakes Island Friends and Families,
I am very excited to announce that I will be returning to Drake’s Island Summer Camp. This year I will be taking on the role of Co-Executive Director, along with my brother Lukas, and the Director of the Little Kids camp.
Last summer was definitely one to remember! In Little Kids Camp we averaged 30+ campers each week in the months of July and August. I really enjoyed opening the doors to the community each morning to a sea of happy campers excited for the activities and for the great day ahead.
This summer, I am happy to announce that my assistant will be Liam Seeley, who worked as a Floater last year. He did a really great job and it was obvious how much the kids liked him. Cameron Hall will be the Floater for the LKC. We are excited to have him back at the camps again. Kailey Hall, Kellen Seeley, Ryan McAvoy and Andrew Wuerthner will all be Hourly Assistants for Apparel set up as well as Counselors when we require more assistance. We truly have a great staff this year and I look forward to working with all of them as well as all of the campers.
This is my second year as the Director of Little Kids camp, I feel that last year the kids really enjoyed coming to camp every day. Buddy day was one of most popular days last year. This is when the LKC would go outside and play games with the Big Kids. This was an instant hit with both camps, the little kids campers loved that they could play “Big Kids” games with their older brother, sister, cousins, and friends and not just watch through the windows! The older kids liked being mentors and teaching the younger kids how to play and how to win each game. I will plan on crafts one or two days a week and again letting the campers choose some of the activities for the day. We may not have pet fish again ……they took too many vacations last year!
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 Liam, Cameron and myself.
I have so many fond memories from my summers here on Drakes Island. This is a very special place filled with very special people. I am enthusiastic to get camp started and have yet another amazing summer.
