It was another beautiful day at camp in Maine. When I stepped outside my home and made my way to the office this morning, I could feel that the temperature had risen and the breeze coming off the lake was warmer. When the sun rose higher, that warm breeze felt a little heavier. Therefore, some precautions for you: As you prepare to join us for visiting day, no matter what kind of shape you are in, the warm and humid air can make this an exhausting experience. Many dads are known to take advantage of their son’s bed during rest hour to take a cat nap, even if the bunk is filled with campers and parents. We will have plenty of water on hand and will make our air-conditioned dining room available to all of our guests from 2:30 to 4:30 pm.
We are prepared for whatever comes our way. We will take advantage of all our indoor facilities in case we get hit with rain. We will also modify our program if it gets too hot. What is most important is that you will be with your son. That’s what will make it a fantastic day.
Please remember my passionate plea; don’t bring an excessive amount of food and candy into camp. While we will not take issue as we greet you, we do want you to know that we will be taking the food out of the bunks at the end of the weekend. Too many campers get physically sick from consuming this junk food, and it attracts skunks and other critters to the bunks. As well, please encourage your son to follow his scheduled program and attend his daily activities. He is used to this routine, and it will be a happier day for all if this routine is not broken.
As you count down the minutes until you pull down Takajo Road, please know that my staff and I are here to do everything we can to make this a memorable experience.
