We have loved pulling back the curtain and taking you Behind the Scenes this year! We hope you’ve learned a little more about how camp works, whether it was hiring our staff, planning the camp menu, or designing our t-shirts.
We’ve got one last edition of this series before the summer, and it is a BIG one: taking you through how we get camp ready for a new summer! It’s a little bit of a trick question, because getting ready for the summer starts all the way back in the fall for our team. We work all year round to make every year the best one yet, but it really kicks into gear in May, and that’s what we’re taking you through today!
Spring is when our summer preparations really become visible; you can see the hard work going on everywhere when you walk through camp! These are just a few things happening as we speak:
Our summer plans really do begin in the fall, but the spring is when the details get set in stone and it’s full-speed-ahead to summer fun! Here’s what we’re working on and getting excited about right now…
In reality, trying to list everything that happens in April and May here in Tuxedo wouldn’t be possible - it takes a huge village to pull the summer off and we are working around the clock this time of year! Every person is checking things off their list like crazy, and praying a lot. We are dialed in, focussed, and ready (as we’ll be!) for the summer ahead.
Every part of this work is worth it though when we’re this passionate about our purpose, and thinking about the sweet counselors and campers we’re doing it all for. A summer at camp is a true labor of love, and we are so ready for you all to get here and get this thing started!
