From a FRIGID 18325, Hi All! I spent all day today up at camp meeting with the new pool company, checking on the many projects going on around camp, and generally looking around.

Pool Update

The new blue pool is truly amazing. I hope you had a chance to watch the Canadensis Today Show (the episode before the Winter Reunion posted on in which we gave you a tour of the new pool. Well, it’s more like a stone pit right now, but it’s the site of the future pool! The exciting part about today was meeting with the pool company and “shaking hands” in agreement to our new SLIDES. It’s official…we will be installing one blue and one gold twisty, tube waterslides. They will be Dorney Park Style, not Snoopy land style Jaycal, but rather 2 big slides! I am sure they will bring new thrills to campers and staff members, but of course only after swim instruction:)

Otherwise, things look great around camp. Believe it or not, there is still no snow on the ground at camp and the lake is not even 100% frozen! The warmer conditions (although today was FREEEZZZING, especially with the wind chill), have allowed our dedicated and hard-working maintenance team to get tons of work done…and it allowed us to add more projects to their already long list! Next week, they will begin the fitness center project and of course Matt will provide us all with pictures on facebook and twitter in February.

Speaking of Matt, he kicks off our Where in the World series this year with his trip departing this Sunday. Stay tuned to Facebook for updates about his trip!

Then on Wednesday, a week from today, it’s my turn to travel, including a stop at “CampMinder Camp” in Colorado and a visit with none other than the Groundhog! I will of course update all of you via facebook as well.

Before heading to bed, a shoutout to all of our campers from Maryland and this fantastic news that this summer, there will be transportation from Maryland! In the past, our campers from this region had to travel up to the Philly suburbs to get to camp. Not any longer…we are excited to grow in this region and provide a bus for convenience from MARYLAND.
