Parents arriving on check-in days have undoubtedly noticed how narrow the entrance road to River Village is. After all, it has been essentially unchanged in 35 years. Camp’s Board of Directors made a decision this year to widen the entry to make it safer for two-way traffic, especially all the buses that bring the 140 school groups per year. Of course it will be better for van-loads of camper families too. It will maintain the curve and ‘discovery of camp’ feel at the bottom that we have all come to love. Watch for it when you next return to camp.
As Dave mentioned in the previous post, the new Camp Tecumseh book From The Heart is currently in production. We thought you would like to see what the cover is going to look like. As he said, it will be available through various sources and at the Homecoming 2009 celebration coming up in two weeks. If you haven’t registered for that yet, you should click and sign up right now!
“From the Heart, a collection of your Camp Tecumseh stories” is a wonderful array of stories from campers, counselors, outdoor education students, and many Tecumseh alumni. Add to the mix of stories both historic and current pictures and the reader will get an inside glimpse of Camp Tecumseh’s influence on those who participate in camp programs. Stories from years ago as well as some from as recent as last spring are included. The book will be available beginning Labor Day weekend at Camp’s Homecoming 2009 reunion. Every camp family will want to have a copy. The books will be available as a Christmas present—watch this C.T.News site for more information in September!
The “All Blacks,” the national rugby team of New Zealand, perform the Haka, a native New Zealand dance, before their matches. This week’s rugby clinic learned the Haka this week and performed it for us at Week 9 Closing Campfire.
