As the executive Camp director, I have the enormous privilege each opening night campfire to welcome all of our Campers and to share both our Camp story as well as my hopes for each of them during their time at Camp. The excitement and anticipation of what's to come is palpable, and I am always struck by the opportunity that awaits – the impact that Camp and our incredible group of staff and volunteers can have on our 120+ campers in such a short time.

Welcome to The Blog Cabin. Here, you will find musings from Camp's CEO, Jimmy Canton, and other members of our leadership team and Camp friends. We hope you'll pull up a chair and share your thoughts too. We're excited for you to join the conversation!
On June 22, 2016, my daughter Genevieve was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She had turned double-digits in May and had just finished a great fourth grade year. She was eagerly anticipating the start of summer vacation. I, too, her mom and a kindergarten teacher, was ready for school to end and to have the most epic summer vacation ever. We had planned to start our summer with a trip to Florida to play on the beach, find manatees and nosh on local delicacies. Instead, our vacay turned into a more epic adventure than ever.
