Welcome back to the Canteen Corner for our October Post! Last month you heard about all of the September news, Alumni updates and read a post from two of our guest bloggers about why they love camp.

Safe to say, we miss camp here at the office and each day we come in and count off another day (only 236 to go)!!! That’s not too bad, right? Good thing we have our reunions coming up so we can see everyone! Click on the links below to get more information and sign up for the reunions!

-We have been moving along in our efforts to renovate camp in the off-season, and so far everything is looking great! G9 and G10 are completely renovated, and the rest of girls’ side is well on it’s way. The main improvements include new windows and insulation, new drop-ceilings, updated cubby rooms and all new showers and hot water heaters.

Russell Weg and Carly Freiman met at camp in 2009. Carly had been attending camp for the past 11 summers and Russell came back after a four year break. The summer they met Carly was a counselor for Senior girls and Russell was a Pioneer counselor. Currently, Carly is a Special Education teacher at a middle school in Manhattan and Russell is a resident at New York Presbyterian Hospital at Cornell. They were married on June 1, 2014!
