Summer 2009: The Director’s Perspective

By November 30, 2009 No Comments

A total of 352 campers attended Nature Camp this summer, one of the highest enrollment figures in history. Campers hailed from 16 states plus the District of Columbia, and participants included more than 50 second?generation campers. Nature Camp provided tuition reduction to nearly 80 campers, but thanks to the extraordinary generosity of garden clubs, other organizations, and individuals, every request for assistance was honored. The exceptionally dedicated and talented staff comprised no fewer than 13 former Best All?Around Campers. The summer also marked emergency medical technician Amy Beaird’s 25th year on staff and her presence and dedicated service were never more valuable. Perhaps the most exciting development of the summer was finally securing local suppliers for eggs, corn, tomatoes, potatoes, squash, carrots, cucumbers, and beans.
