Chatagram February 2017

 

Hello Camp Family,

I trust everyone is doing well and making the most of these winter months. I know many of you have been off skiing and snowboarding, playing basketball, volleyball and swimming on swim teams. Others have been excelling in school, practicing musical instruments and generally chilling with family and friends. That’s all good, but I miss you and I’m happy to announce that Spring is in the air which means one thing to me… SUMMER IS AROUND THE CORNER!

Hal, Lynn, Katka, Dylan and I have been working diligently to get ready for another out-standing summer at camp… CHATEAUGAY 2017! There are going to be some new and exciting things happening this summer.

Let’s talk about evening activities. Dylan has been hard at work organizing a new bunk night activity for our older campers, A Murder Mystery Dinner Party, where everyone must work together to figure out who committed the crime.

We’re also having DJ Yahney (a professional DJ), with lasers, a smoke machine, stage light-ing and great sound system to have our epic end of the summer social.

We also have an awesome new addition to our tripping program for our younger campers.

Joel and Steve from maintenance have been building a campground in Camp Chateaugay’s own back country. The new outpost is a great place to have overnight camp outs with a fire pit for campfires. It’s a fun way to introduce outdoor camping to our campers all while safe-ly located our own property.

I hope that gives you a sneak peek at some of the fun that is coming your way this summer.

Thankfully it’s only a few short months away. The summer is going to be here before we know it and we will be ready. How about you???


Much Love,
Mitch

News News News!!!

Mitch and Hal visited Theo Applebaum in the hospital this past week. He’s on the mend from the rare stroke he suffered back in November. It was so wonderful seeing him and the remarkable recovery he’s making. He’s really grateful for the outpouring of love and support he has received from many of his camp friends. His goal is to be a camper this summer and are all hoping for his return.

****************************

Joel is updating the Lower HQ by Pillbox. This will now be the WELCOMING place for camp visitors and Lynn and Katka's new administrative office. We are excited for the improvement.

****************************

Gymnastics - Brand new state of the art uneven bars have been ordered and will raise the bar in gymnastics.

****************************

Our head staff are almost all returning. We are all so excited.  For Ceramics some of you might remember Derek Frey. He worked with Amanda several years ago and now as an art teacher, he can not stay away. We are excited to have him back and taking over the ceramics department.

Do not worry, Amanda Scotto has not left us. She is Chateaugay's new Head Counselor. Amanda is very much looking forward to her new roll. This is a com-pletely new position for Camp Chateaugay. Kira Reed will be back as head Unit Leader and Adam Hampton will be returning as well.

*****************************

Herbert Dingle will be taking over the dance department. He is an unbelievable skilled dancer. Herbert works in Florida as a dance instructor during the off sea-son and will be bringing his strong dance skills to Chateaugay. Herbert will also be involved with the shows helping choreograph them.

******************************

Mitch is very excited for his new roll at Chateaugay and has been working very hard meeting with new families and connecting with old camp families. If any returning families would like to speak or meet Mitch, feel free to contact him.

Mitch can be reached directly at 954-540-5311.
