Hello Chestnut Lake!
Seeing the staff and meeting new families a few weeks ago at Spring Fling only intensified the desire for camp to start! It was a wonderful weekend that allowed us to get a little taste of what the summer of 2014 at CLC has in store. After 10 summers with Trails’ End and now 4 with Chestnut Lake, the excitement doesn’t lessen as Opening Campfire approaches.
It has certainly been a busy year. Teaching high school English is always a rewarding experience, and I am so proud of my students this year. They are truly one of the most dedicated and passionate groups of students I’ve had the pleasure to teach. This year, I was also able to coach my son Sean’s soccer team to another winning season. Sean has also had another amazing year in school and we couldn’t be prouder of his progress. Our younger son Matt also started his first experience playing soccer this spring and it has been a wild ride. Laurie and I are preparing for Matt to take the big plunge into kindergarten this fall! In addition to our busy schedule, we managed to squeeze in some great hikes along the Appalachian Trail, swims at the Jersey Shore, and some vacation time with the grandparents in Virginia.
With Staff Education Week coming to a close we are excited about all the things we have planned for boys’ campus. We can’t wait to see all the boys back on campus welcoming those new to Chestnut Lake. Until Opening Campfire. I look forward to seeing you on Visiting Day!
