Camp Silver Lake
As some of you know after 13 years of camp this was the last year that we will offer Camp Silver Lake through Therapy Connections. It has been a rewarding time that will last me and I hope all of you, a lifetime of great memories.
Camp has grown so much since it started in 1999. I started with one week for campers ages 6-12 and it grew so much that another week of camp was added to accommodate the ever increasing demand for everyone who wanted to attend! Eventually a third week was added at the suggestion of the graduated campers who were now teens to add a teen week. I heard so many times, “But, Miss Joyce, what will we do now that we are 13?” Who could resist that?
I want to thank each and every person that has ever been a part of the Camp Silver Lake experience. My gratitude towards each and every one of you can never be expressed in words alone. All of YOU helped to make camp extraordinary for all of us too.
When I learn of other special needs camps I will definitely add the information to our website or Facebook page so that our campers and their families will be able to look at other options for positive camp experiences in the summer.
Saying good bye is never easy. I have genuinely enjoyed working with our great staff, volunteers, campers and their families and the wonderful people at Silver Lake Beach. Never forget that there will always be other exciting opportunities and challenges for each of you!
I hope when you look at your photo albums from camp and see all of your friends having fun with you that you will remember camp fondly too. I know I will.
